Situated inside the historic Nelson dockyard pillars offers exceptional food reasonably priced. Service was very friendly and professional. The setting of the tables next to the sea is unique and makes it very romantic.even though it was busy the food arrived quick and was delicious....More

We popped in for cocktails and a light snack after touring Nelson's Dockyard and the museum. The staff were friendly and helpful, the service was good and the ambience hard to beat. Such a lovely location.

We stayed and dined at the restaurant frequently. Generally a good choice of food with brilliant helpful service. Fabulous views of English Harbour and the historic museum is well worth a visit. The bird-life will keep you entertained!
