We started the meal with a Beaujolais and the Entree, Main and Desert were stunning. The staff and waiters were very good which made this a really nice night out. A great French experience.

You have to visit here if you like galette or crepes. Again better than anything you can get from Auckland and as good as in France!!!

One of the best cappacinos in Nelson, and the crepes were divine. Excellent choice for morning tea. And my daughter loved playing with the French puzzle book! Great service and beautiful atmosphere.

I just love this place! The main attraction is the Galettes..but one can still have steak/fish etc which is on the menu. But for me...this is my kind of food..the special (at the moment)is a smoked salmon salad.... Just wait for the fig season...the special is even more special..but right now the special has strips of galette "tagliatelle " style... More

Very obliging staff ... they were actually full but said that we could be accommodated if we didn't mind sitting on high stools at the bench table against the window. No problem! We could dine and watch the world go by! Nice atmosphere and a charming French waitress who was happy to oblige me by having a conversation in French.... More

Everything about this place is good. The savoury galettes (savoury crepes) as well as the sweet ones. The coffee is great too, and so is the service. French waitresses who know their stuff and are efficient about it. Location is central. Not to be missed.

We really enjoyed this place, and went there twice during our 4 days stay in Nelson. The galettes (savoury crepes) and the sweet crepes were all excellent. All in our groups were happy with what they received. The waitresses were knowledgeable and decisive (what do you expect? they are French!!) and the time there was very pleasant. Coffee was very...

This was my dining find in Nelson and was one of two places recommended to me by a colleague. A café and creperie specialising in French cuisine and savoury and sweet crepes. I was there for dinner on a very quiet Wednesday. I enjoyed a two course special comprising French Onion soup and fish main - all excellent . The... More

A must in Nelson, my daughter is at boarding school in Nelson, while visiting her she convinced us to dine here. I normally don't like crepes but absolutely enjoyed these ones! We went back several times during our week in Nelson. The service was fast and the staff were great. I tried a savoury salmon one from the specials board... More

I have overlooked La Gourmandise for far too long. Recently I was invited to meet friends there for lunch. The menu was very inviting but once I spotted the salmon galette the decision was easy :-) And I was certainly not disappointed. It was absolutely divine - and despite of looking not a lot on the plate it was very... More
