We took our son and his girlfriend to Hopgoods before they left on the big OE and had a wonderful meal which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Fresh produce, meat and fish, prepared beautifully. Service was top rate. Two big groups shared the restaurant with our group and another small group. We were seated so noise from the big groups did... More

Amazing food, great service, its a little on the 'pricey' side, but would be a wonderful place for a Special occasion. presentation of food is beautiful, however, if you a really hungry, you will need to order more than usual, as they are small servings.

We went there on a Saturday night after making a booking. The staff were professional and efficient and the food was fantastic as usual. Standouts were the fish of the day and the pork. I would always recommend this place when in Nelson. They never let you down and can be relied on to produce fresh, interesting food.

We made a reservation a day in advance, and we're glad we did because the tables all filled up right before our eyes. Marie was our server, and she was amazingly attentive yet not intrusive. She had excellent knowledge of the dishes and the best wines to enjoy with each. We started the meal with the mushroom soup accompanied by... More

Great menu featuring seasonal and locally sourced produce. Very attentive service from the moment you walk in. A good variety of well executed dishes as well as a great wine list! Look forward to going again.

We went in for dinner on a Saturday night without a booking and whilst it was busy they still had a couple of free tables. The wine was a little pricey by the glass - the value was definitely to get a bottle. my wife's fillet steak was great, my lamb dish was very nice but it was a very... More

You might want to save this one until you've "earned it" or for some special occasion otherwise. The bar was raised so high that, ever since this experience, all our dinners out have been more difficult to appreciate.

Dropped in without a booking hoping for an early dinner. We were in luck and got a table that we would have to vacate after about an hour and a half...not a problem. The new menu is good. Our chosen starters were fish cakes for the boss and scampi for me. Both excellent. Mains of lamb and confit duck were... More
