We decided to give this spot another try. We have eaten on the patio in summer and so, thought we would go back. It was chilly inside so we ordered hot drinks. The waitresses seemed tired. The good was good although not much choice for vegetarian. My salad was excellent and the chocolate cake was okay.

You can't go wrong with the Guadeloupe Fiesta. Good food. The restaurant is small but service is always friendly. Always enjoy my time here.

I took my grandma here for her birthday since she is a garlic lover and we were visiting Nelson. The atmosphere was fun and very garlic dedicated. I ordered the caesar salad and yam fries with a garlicky dip (yum!). The salad had roasted garlic in it which I love. My grandma ordered garlic mashed potatoes with a portobello mushroom... More

Once again Nelson excels! This is my second visit to Nelson and am so happy that I asked for a recommendation on where to take my family for a great 'Nelson' supper. We started with the warm artichoke dip with pita. Not like any I have had before! We loved it as it has tender pieces of artichokes instead of... More

There's something magical about garlic; it holds alot of mystery and mysticism. This restaurant explores all that. It makes loving garlic a fun experience. Pros: the food was an interesting combination of flavours, they have a variety of vegetarian options, service was really nice, must have the garlic chip cookies or garlic ice cream for dessert! Cons: not the restaurant... More

This was my third visit at the Outer Clove, food and service has been consistent, both now during high season, and in November, and February during low season. I have had the pasta twice, and the Lamb Shanks once, all delicious, next I will try the double wrapped tacos, they looked good going to the other tables. Great portions, and... More
