Mediterranean Food Company

322 Tuam St, Christchurch, New Zealand

A lunchtime visit to this lovely cafe is highly recommended. The cafe is joined on to a market area, where you can buy a range of authentic Mediterranean foods and wine. 

The lunchtime menu gives choices of pasta, risotto and salad dishes, and has a large range of pizzas, plus a "blackboard specials" menu.

I ordered a Calabrese pizza, my friend ordered a Prosciutto e funghi pizza, and my sister ordered a Mediterranean Salad from the "blackboard specials" menu, which included halloumi, beetroot and pear.
The pizzas were authentic oven fired pizzas, with a lovely thin base ... just like the real-deal in Italy! They were full of flavour and not too top heavy with toppings ... just the right combination! The salad was a healthy portion and was served with slices of ciabatta bread. We decided to celebrate this get together with a bottle of Prosecco ... seemed appropriate given the setting we were in!

The cafe has indoor and outdoor seating, and quickly filled up with a lunchtime crowd! The service was friendly and attentive, and we were never made to feel we had to "finish up and leave" ... in fact, we stayed for over 2 hours, enjoying the food, atmosphere, wine and conversation!

Definitely worth a visit when in Christchurch!
