For four generations, the Lakakis family have had the passion for cooking unforgettable food. At Costas Taverna you can order their traditional Greek dishes made to perfection, prepared only with the freshest local and imported ingredients. Don't forget to pair the delicacies with one (or more) of their many Ouzos.
Once known mainly for its superb lamb, Canterbury and Christchurch are now gaining a reputation for a wide range of food and wine. Local meat produce includes venison, emu and ostrich. There is fresh seafood readily available including scallops, crayfish and Mount Cook Salmon, all which are recommended. Canterbury is also a large wine producing region, specialising in Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
