Outer Clove Restaurant is a full-service, casual dining restaurant in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada that serves lunch and dinner. A long-time Nelson favourite, we offer contemporary and classic dishes from around the world. Garlic infuses the food-from a subtle hint to a more intense flavour explosion-while the service is warm and friendly and the vibe is casual. Everything on the evolving menu is freshly prepared from scratch and there are daily lunch and dinner specials. The dining room seats 38 patrons with a further 10 seats available on the seasonal patio.

One of the Best Restaurants in Nelson

This is my wife's favourite restaurant in Nelson. You smell the garlic as you approach the front door. Menu is varied and has different options. Food quality and portions are excellent. Prices are very good. Recommended for groups of less that 4 as the seating area is small. The restaurant is... read more

My teenagers and I had the pleasure having lunch here. We were greeted warmly, the art work is amazing and the food is incredible. We had the share plate with Brie, bread, roasted garlic etc, fried pickles, calamari with bits of garlic and a great time. We came back for dinner the next night too where we enjoyed Crab Mac...

We visited on April 11,2015. Excellent and quick service with a pleasant and attentive server. Food was good. Can you OD on garlic?

So, this place is called "The Outer Clove" for a reason. It's a garlic-themed restaurant. Not only is the decor made of garlic presses arranged like modern art, but there is garlic in pretty much everything they serve. They even have a jar of garlic and chocolate chip cookies that you should probably try. I was here for lunch a... More

The restaurant is conveniently located just a few steps from Baker Street. The old fashion and laid back atmosphere is very inviting as well as relaxing, almost romantic. The service is exceptional, friendly and knowledgeable. Indulge in a good conversation and won’t even notice the time that freshly made food usually takes. Seeing the chef’s creation, got to stop for... More

It's been awhile since a few friends and I visited the Outer Clove (a personal favourite of one of the girls of our former birthday club). I liked the atmosphere, the food was enjoyed by all of us, and my mouth is again watering for something garlicky and delicious that I am sure to get there! :)

Five of us had a leisurely evening meal in this funky little restaurant. The food was very good although three of the group wanted the chicken but there was only one left. The place had a good laid back atmosphere & the service was probably a little slow for some people but suited us as we were happy just chatting... More

Food and service were both really good. They have some local beers on tap. Meals are quite large at a reasonable price (not cheap, but not overly expensive given the good quality and large servings). Probably not a place I'd go if I didnt like garlic (it's their thing)... but I do like it so I'd absolutely go there again... More

What a delicious gem! I had never even heard of the Outer Clove until I was looking for a venue to book our work Christmas Party dinner. We had a private reservation for about 40 people and it was all around a wonderful experience. They prepared a custom menu for us to pre-order from with something for everyone, including children....
