Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went on a Saturday and didn’t find it overly enjoyable. The food was pretty good (nothing I’d rave about personally) but we found it strange to be told after dinner that the cocktails and coffees were all finished (by 10 on a Saturday night??)...and it felt like staff wanted everyone gone. Vibe was definitely off sadly as we so wanted to enjoy this one.More

I have been to Odeon twice. I can't fault it! Food: Amazing. My first time was at dinner; we trusted the chef and were not disappointed. They had a new menu, and we were surprised by many different flavours. This is not a boring fine...dining or a bland cuisine style. It's truly for lovers of different flavours and a great twist on Mediterranean cuisine! Service: Amazing pairing the wine for us, offering what would be better for us and helping with allergies. Atmosphere: It was just great! It's an open space, but the booth area breaks it down and makes it a really reserved space. The music was excellent, the lighting was cosy, and the shop design was lovely!! Second time: Brunch for Mother's Day Honestly, it nailed it for me and my family. After this visit, I can clearly tell that this is the best restaurant in Christchurch right now. It's cost-effective, has delicious flavours, and offers amazing service. You guys are bringing the fun of dining out back to Christchurch. Well done!More

The food was absolutely amazing. I would fully recommend the eggplant and corn as medium plates. Just delicious. The white fish was also delectable. I will definitely be back

Best meal I’ve had for a long time. We had the potato skins, Corn Ribs and Grilled Chicken. Simply amazing and ingenious creativity without comprising flavour or serving size.

Stumbled on this little gem tonight on our first day in Christchurch. They were able to get us in to the chef’s bar. Easily the best meal we’ve had in New Zealand in our 3 weeks here. Fresh, local ingredients. Creative dishes and great sized...portions. Highly recommend trying the chef’s tasting menu. You won’t be disappointed. Also worth noting every single person on staff, including the owner, was very friendly and interested in making our time at their place spectacular. Don’t miss this place!More

We did the 'Trust the Chef' at the Chef's table.....absolutely stunning! The food was outstanding, as was the service. Loved not quite knowing what was coming out next, but knowing it was going to be delicious. My only tiny piece of advice would be for...the Chef to be a little more engaging and proud of the dishes he was creating for us because he was awesome!More

Truly excellent food and service and wine. We had the banquet for my mums birthday and all of the food was lovely from the house made foccacia to the desert. My mum also has weird dietary requirements and they were extremely accomodating. They had a...great wine selection and chose me a lovely central Otago Pinot noir. Great ambience as well. One of the only Christchurch restaurant that can rival the best Auckland places.More

In one word - outstanding! My son was staying with me so his night to treat me. The menu looked very exotic so I thought I would play it safe and go for the flounder but my son said let’s go for the 6 courses....I did ask if a little flounder could be included. Well, what an explosion of flavours. Just divine. How many more pates to come? Then out came a huge flounder covered in this amazing citrus sauce. And the potatoes?? The dessert was more deliciousness. A giant leap into the unknown but boy was it worth it. Great chefs, great service. Try the State of Play non alcoholic beer.More

I went with my daughter for a pre show dinner. We chose trust the chef six course degustation. We were not disappointed, everything was seasonal and delicious. Lots of original flavour pairings that were amazing. Staff were knowledgeable about each dish and were also great...helping us with wine choices. As we left we were able to thank the chefs and staff, they were obviously appreciative and proud of their work. So they should be.More

Ate here before a show as very handy. Decor great, staff friendly but disappointed in the food. In the smaller sharing plates no meat option only veggies except salmon. If you want meat have to go to a larger plate. Prices very very expensive. Ordered...leeks at $26 and only got 3 little pieces, and salmon at $28 got two very small pieces. Overpriced for what you got.More

My wife and I only had one day in Christchurch and asked at a local bar for a recommendation for dinner. We were told that Odeon had recently opened and that the food was really good. We arrived without a reservation and were very well...looked after. We ordered the tasting menu and were sat at the chefs table. The food was beautifully cooked and presented and for the quality of the food the bill was reasonable. We really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant.More

Came with friends and did the chefs tasting. Andalusian food so a few different flavours and dishes than what we were used to but we loved everything! Would definitely come back. Fit out is really nice although might still be working on the toilets?
