Comfortable place with 3 seating choices, dining room, lounge or patio. Wok fried squid to start was excellent. Nice wine selection. My wife and I both had different cuts of steak and wow, they were off the chart! Service was excellent. Was a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Treat yourself.

The lounge is dark comfortable environment and the main restaurant dining area is a funky modern decor. My wife and I had a Caesar salad which was excellent... More

Four of us ate here...it was ok, but nothing special. My ginger beef pasta dish at $21.50 was pedestrian, and the meat was tough. The others in our group of 4 were satisfied. The server was loud and a bit full of himself...added nothing to our experience, and a bit annoying. The room...the back part is a bit of a... More

Had the NY steak which was perfect and the taste of the steak tasted outstanding. Service friendly and efficient. As well the NYSteak with peppercorn sauce came perfectly cooked. The sauce tasted like it came out of a bag (too much water used) and peppercorns added. I think a plain steak is the better choice and I would go back... More

Dear Ngosi, Thank you for your comments, and we are so glad you enjoyed your steak so much! I am sorry that you didn't enjoy the peppercorn sauce with your steak. I can, however, assure you that it is made in house, and does not "come out of a bag". In fact, we are proud to say that all of... More

Our first stay in Nelson and after viewing the reviews in TripAdvisor we thought we'd give this establishment a try. Absolutely beautiful view and excellent location. We sat on the patio and tried some of the local beer. The pepperoni pizza was excellent. We both had desserts and enjoyed them. The only and our biggest concern was the lady that... More

Dear easytrvir, Thank you for your comments. And we are so glad you enjoyed your meal with us. With reference to the small dog on the patio… You are exactly right, it shouldn't have happened. My understanding is that the guest was told by the server at the beginning of the night that the dog was not permitted, and the... More

Dear Kim M, Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment. I'm assuming you were in our restaurant a while ago, as lamb has not been on our menu for months. With that said, I do apologize that you did not enjoy your starter or lamb dish. If our service staff offended your culinary intelligence, I once again... More
