Favourite restaurant full stop for me and my wife to go to.

The Souvlaki platters are amazing. The falafel one is the best falafel I've had, hands down. Chicken is also incredibly good.

The garlic pita bread starter is outstanding, we always get it when with a larger group (the platters are a good full sized meal for us).

Costas Illusion cocktail is very nice, and the frozen granita jug is a good option with multiple people.

Always had good experiences here with probably over 10 visits.

My wife and I shared muscles for an entree and a souvlaki platter for a main. Delicious. This is the first time I’ve been to a Greek restaurant and I loved it.

We're from the UK, been on South Island for 24 glorious days. This is easily the best food we've had on SI! Didn't book and initially disappointed but the found us a table. I had the chicken skewers, Sue had her favourite the Moussaka. Wow, great flavours, like being back in Greece. Finished with Metaxa! Love to come back but flying out tomorrow, thanks for great food and the memory!

If I lived in Christchurch it would be my go to place, however we dont but when we visit we make sure we eat here.

The food is great, the service excellent. We live in Arrowtown, please open a branch in Queenstown or Arrowtown, there is no Greek restaurant in either of these and you would be booked out every night.
