When some restaurants in the heart of Nelson are doing multiple sittings at your restaurant is almost devoid of customers at 9pm you have to ask yourself why?

A little different having steak and chips with eggs sausage tomato bacon and toast but... More

We arrived into Nelson quite late and by the time we checked into accomodation it was after 8PM. We had been here before so knew where to find it. We arrived soon after checking in at our motel, and we were seated as soon as we walked in. My wife and I both had the fish as a main and... More

Friendly service. Good menu. The salmon dish I had (Salmon Nicoise Salad) was perfect! Nice view of the local marina.

Popped in Saturday evening for a quick meal before the movies. I had the salmon and my husband had the groper both large meals with lots of veges and salad. The fish was cooked to perfection the flavours were devine. Couldn't manage the desserts so will have to try them next time. The service was really good too. We had... More

Had an excellent grouper and scallop meal which was served with a green salad and oven baked potatoes. Also staff very friendly and as I was sitting in a cooler part of the restaurant they brought over a gas heater. Great service, excellent food will make this my regular when in a Nelson. Could also charge back to my motel... More

We were seated right next to the full length windows and the view over the water was stunning. Service was fast and attentive without being intrusive, after being seated... More

After a hectic day we looked about for somewhere nice to relax so we could enjoy a meal over a quiet chat and a drink. On arrival we noticed some empty tables so asked the duty manager if they could accommodate three diners. The response was uncertain but we were eventually poked in the corner. I attempted to get drinks... More
