Our latest lunch visit I had the Quasar burger and my wife had the Super salad.We both enjoyed both! One has to share in this place. When we visited this summer with friends, everyone was excited to try each other's plates. Always fun and comfortable here, with no "greasy food" feeling afterwards. I always appreciate the fresh fare - it's... More

Wonderful to be able to go to this Nelson Classic restaurant after many years and still be able to count on the delicious food and the welcome atmosphere. We had the chicken cordon bleu which was melt -in-your-mouth delicious. Well worth the visit. Very friendly wait staff as well. Always a bonus.

I popped in for lunch with some friends. There was very little menu variety and everything we ordered was bland and lackluster. Don't waste your time

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your lunch with us. Our chefs strive to make everything tasty and delicious, but unfortunately it sounds like your meal fell short of the mark when you visited. I hope you'll visit again so that we can make amends with a more enjoyable meal. More

Limited menu, small portions which would have been ok, but waiting for over an hour after ordering is unacceptable. Was not even busy! Was recommended by a local who had rarely eaten there, so I see why. .

Good food, good value, Bohemian ambiance. Despite a local's hesitation to recommend ("not my favourite place...") We went anyway and were pleasantly surprised.

The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. It is a little expensive but if you order the right thing it's worth it. Ordered the garlic prawns to begin with and there was far too much pepper on them. The Chicken Cordon Clove is exceptional, they have great desserts too! Paid about 150$ for 3 people though.

This restaurant is a Nelson institution. For lunch we enjoyed Fisherman's Fingers, Lamb Souvlaki Wrap and a glass of wine. The Fisherman's Fingers are home made breaded cod sticks served with cole slaw and the Lamb Souvlaki Wrap is grilled lamb served with tikiziki sauce, onions and tomatoes all wrapped in a pita. Both items were very yummy! The service... More

Haven't been in for sometime but let me tell you it's no where near the quality it used to be.we ordered the outer clove starter which we always order it was half the size it used to be. I ordered a garlic burger it was absolutely disgusting, and came with a tiny amount of pre frozen fries. This was always... More

My friend was so excited to take me to this funky little restaurant. We were warmly greeted and seated promptly. I chose the lamb special, my friend, the classic beef burger. Our waiter noticed that the cutlery designated for my friends place was lacking and assured us she would be back with a new set. After quite a wait our... More
