Local workers staying at the same hotel as our group suggested we try this restaurant, also recommended the Garlic Yum Burger:. My only regret is the restaurant is too far for us to drive to from the states. It was fantastic, and the young Asian waitress who served us was the hit of the evening. Highly recommend you try this... More

We wanted something unpretentious and local and Outer Clove is that. The beer and wine list in a location like Nelson leaves a lot to be desired. One or two good house wines rather than poor quality bottom-shelf would have done a lot to enhance the experience. More than one beer on tap would also add to the experience. We... More

Hanging around Baker St, saw this little place on side street and thought we'd check it out. Looked at the menu and noticed all things funky so that means the wife is "In" Everything has a garlic component, wife had a funky soup and salad and I played it safe with a garlic infused burger. Guess what? Everything was great!... More

Had a great time here with my family. Prices were reasonable, the food was delicious and they had a great local brew on tap. Our waitress (she said she was Chinese) was one of the friendliest waitresses I've ever come across. Great place to sit by the open window watching people stroll up and down the street too. Garlic heaven!

We found this place just strolling...it is vey warm and funky..the garlic theme nicely woven into the whole experience. The food was most excellent, and good value. The servers were ok, but didn't add much to the experience. We'd certainly go again.

Our food was healthy and nourishing, and our server was very friendly. We had a great meal at the end of a long day of travel.

Stumbled upon this interesting little place which is very much a garlic restaurant. Meals were of a very good size & there was such a good selection. We sat outside which was lovely as inside was very warm.

Loved the food, loved it when we got to eat on the outdoor patio, did not love sitting inside at first, it was very hot.

We really enjoyed our food here -we are garlic fans so we loved the hint of garlic. Their ceasers are awesome! We were only in town for a week but at there twice as we enjoyed ourselves so much the first time. Great place - we will be back
