Cold evening, warm restaurant, service and comprehensive menu. Fillet steak for her. Ribeye for me, with a side of delicious warmed beetroot and feta and a lovely Cab. Sauv. Busy restaurant with generous portions. Great.

Great meal with friendly and attentive staff. It was a quiet night but for all that the service was prompt and the meals were very good with excellent presentation. The salmon fillet was very tasty - one of the better I have enjoyed.

Variety of choice on the menu was more than acceptable for breakfast and dinner. Friendly efficient staff, and a great view over the river. Would be first choice to stay and eat on our next visit to Nelson.

We used a grab one voucher and were more than happy with the food options. A delicious meal of eye fillet. Very attentive staff with comfortable seating and a lovely view of the water. Would visit again.
