This has not been taken down from the internet but we have found out it has now closed down and is called Mrs Hucks cafe. A shame really as it was very good fine dining.

We went there on a "grab one" coupon so had the venison stew with sticky date dessert. The wine selection is well thought out and the serving staff seem a lot more knowledgeable than most in this town. The venue is a tidy but not...More

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.

I have been to Edesia few times and everytime its been great. It wasnt crowded( maybe because its was week nights), the food is very good and so is the service. Great wine selection. It is definitely one of my favorite places in Christchurch.

The food was good though trop de nouvelle cuisine, but the service patchy and the ambiance awful: when spending that much for a meal we expect to be able to converse without shouting across the table.
