We had dinner at Harry's and it was very very good. Absolutely delicious and well presented. We sat outside on a nice evening and had a very good meal. The wine list is extensive and very reasonable. If you have the time in nelson try Harry's for dinner

Good selection of beer wines and cocktails. The staff were very helpful on the beer choices and the peanuts Pics were excellent. Serv is was good even though they were busy. We didn't eat but the food being brought out looked fresh and hot. Great place to just chill out with a drink.

Would have scored higher, but we had to shift inside due to smokers spoiling the atmosphere outside. Service and good was really good. Would be a great place to go with a larger group pre-dinner.

A very busy place but only open from 4pm. Serving mainly asian cuisine. Only stopped here for a final drink on our way home. Nice friendly staff and vibrant atmosphere

Food is consistently good whenever we come here. Waitress may have been new as didn't have much knowledge of the menu and was wearing denim beach shorts which was a bit odd.

Having dinner outside was lovely, and my husband's salt and pepper squid was excellent. My Kung Pao chicken was only fair. Good drinks menu. Nonexistent service - we finally ordered at the bar - even though the waitress occasionally flitted by, never stopping at any tables.

Totally random find but some of the better Thai food I've ever had. Mads was awesome, helpful and was able to tell me what I could and couldn't have. Totally worth a stop in this fun place. Try the Pad Thai, different but you won't regret it

Harry's was great! Highly recommend the prawn toast & salt/pepper squid. Great service! Not too expensive either!

This bar has a great vibe to it. There's an excellent wine and cocktail list and while we were only having drinks here before going on to dinner, they also have a reasonably good dinner menu. Recommended.

Thank Rick M
