It was a Sunday afternoon and we decided to check out Costas for dinner that night. Lucky I decided to book as it was packed when we turned up at 7! The decor is awesome, and the food is absolutely amazing. We had the garlic pita and cheese filos to start. Definitely didn't need both as the starters were huge, as were the mains. We had the lemonato chicken and chicken souvlaki platter for our mains. The mini dessert option is a great idea and we both had the mousse - again, delicious! We will definitely be back.

We had a family dinner (4 of us) on Friday night. Very little to say expect that the entire night was amazing. Food was brilliant, atmosphere was superb and the services was hands done some of the best ever. Hats off to our waitress Floss who looked after us and did a wonderful job. Thank you so much for the excellent evening and the amazing food,

Spoilt for choice, we shared 3 entrees between 4, over indulged on the 2 for 1 souvalakis but had left overs for a doggy box to enjoy the next day. Then to complete the indulgence, mini deserts - all were great. The calamari was tasty, the spanakopita light and flavour filled but the flamed cheese took the award! Tried all four flavours of the souvalaki - all great but lamb stood out for being perfectly prepared. We will be back!

Great atmosphere, some waiting time for reserved table, food is lovely with a Kiwi twist. Uzo was warm but original.

We came here because I was dying for some greek food because there's no Greek restaurant in Queenstown.

This place didn't disappoint. The food is incredibly good and our server Elpi was amazing, super friendly.


I loved it all! The meze platter was really yummy. The tzatziki is incredible. My highlight was the flaming Saganaki. Yum!

Decor was great, was super busy on a Sunday night which shows its very
popular. I recommend booking
ahead for a good table.

We were SO full, but the dessert menu looked amazing so had to try some. The chocolate mousse mountain was incredible and the baklava was the best I've ever tried.

Can't wait to go back next time we are in Christchurch.
