We had a very enjoyable meal here on a rainy evening in February. The food was good as was the service. If we visited again to Nelson we would go here. It was reasonable in price, food and service.

Five stars on food and staff. Friendly, relaxed and efficient without being intrusive. Went back for a second night because it is that good. I wish I had discovered this restaurant the first night I arrived in Nelson.
