food was amazing..we had ouzo prawns which was cooked at the perfect cooking temperature, fish of the day with sautee kale and broccoli (even tough I'm not a fan of kale, it was well seasoned, balanced with high acidity (pickled red onion helped a lot) and really tasty, nothing remained on the plate at the end:)).We also had tzatziki with raisin and pickled cucumber.Staff were very friendly.It was a great night overall.

Beautiful food ! So much flavour ! The only thing that puts me off is going out for dinner and having to go up and order your drinks and food and then collect it. Especially when I was eating and I wanted another drink to go with my dinner.. I had to leave my food go up to the bar which was busy... wait to be served ... wait to get my drinks then go back to the table. For me personally it removes the relaxation part of going out for dinner.

The service was amazing and friendly, super fast despite it being pretty busy. Our food came out quickly and was incredible. I couldn’t fault the meatballs, they were so flavourful, 100% would recommend. The souvlakis were great, lamb one possibly a bit more flavourful. We also ordered a side of chips, the feta on the top was delicious. 100% would recommend, amazing value for money. Will be going back m!

Could this be the best kept secret in Christchurch?
It's a great open area and flows easily to the outdoor area. The food here is absolutely amazing. It has great flavor and is just the right size to sample lots of different dishes. This place will truly get your taste buds dancing.

Great food. Some of the options weren’t available but the staff made suggestions of replacement options which turned out to be highlights of the meal. Varied and extensive drinks menu that complimented the menu but still provided suitable options for the differing tastes of all the members of our party.

Weekday lunchtime. My friend said her Chicken souvlaki was yum and she really enjoyed it. I asked her where were the fries that went with it and she showed me they were in the souvlaki. I ordered the lamb souvlaki pitaless. Was a bit surprised that the lamb was thinly sliced and tasted like roast lamb which had been deep fried. Not to my taste. So one of us was very happy. I wouldn't go again to eat solely because the food doesn't seem to be the usual healthy style I would expect with souvlaki. Others may love it, more a pub style interpretation.
Great venue for drinks.
Was glad I'd read an earlier review to wear layers as the venue can be cold. It was quite cool when we arrived. Heaters seemed to go on later and the whole space very quickly warmed up to quite cosy.
