Upscale dining room in a business-park setting, looking out on fountains and trees. Waitstaff was very friendly and helpful. Flavors of food were not as distinct or interesting as hoped for, especially in view of the price. A good but not great meal.

This place is opposite the AMI stadium so if you are planning to meet friends to go to see a rugby game, have a dinner or snacks and a drink, this is the place to go. The food is extremely classy despite the place having a very easy going atmosphere with a fireplace in winter to sit by. There is a huge bar and tables are far enough apart to give you some privacy to enjoy a luxurious dinner.

It's always a pleasure to visit Edesia. The staff are friendly and knowledgable, the food fresh and well prepared. While I am a little over the flavoured salt, the complimentary bread is both welcome and delicious. The fish was so fresh and the steak so tender. A delightful experience that tempts us to return again.

This is an establishment where the chefs know exactly what they are doing. We have eaten here twice and were very happy both times - the (justified) expense prevents it from being a regular though! The presentation was delightful and the tastes sublime - seasoned perfectly and almost too pretty to eat.
The two wait staff who served us could not have been better - friendly without being intrusive, and professional to an excellent level.
We will be back for special occasions - the restaurant deserves planning ahead, savouring, and will do an important dinner justice.
