Nice Find in Nelson

Great restaurant a couple of blocks away from the Hume Hotel. Try their Okanagon Natural Pear cider! Tasty garlic-themed restaurant. We'd go back.

Great service at a unique little place to enjoy food - including garlic flavoured delicious chocolate chip cookies! Had a lunch here and enjoyed the flavours and care with which all was prepared.

Stopped in for lunch on their lovely street side patio. They offer an excellent selection with many items garlic infused. Our lunch choices were delicious and the deep fried pickles are out of this world. Service was great and prices reasonable.

Wow! What a treat! The Outer Clove is definitely our favourite restaurant in Nelson. Everything we had was absolutely delicious, fresh and scrumptious. We wished we had discovered it earlier in our stay. Sure, its a place that specializes in garlic and you'll need to be aware of your impact on others for a while, but its a taste-sensation from...

Dishes created around the use of Garlic in so many creative ways! Everything we had was delicious. Don't forget to take a bottle of the garlic Syrup home with you for popcorn!!

When we arrived the restaurant wasn't very busy, but by the time our food arrived it was filling up very quickly.

The Outer Clove is by far my favourite restaurant in Nelson. They have the best Cesar salad I've ever eaten! Whether it's a couples, family, or friends dinner I always have an amazing meal and a great time. The restaurant is quite small, but the wait staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating and the decor is funky and eclectic. I'd... More

Our party of four made a quick trip to Nelson after enjoying the ferry ride on Kootenay Lake. We stopped a friendly local and asked for some recommendations for lunch and was informed that the Outer Clove was a favorite. Our server was helpful and attentive and made some recommendations. We had fried pickles and fish fingers for starters and... More

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 current up for sale - so not sure what... 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...
