$26 was paid for a Grab One Voucher, given as a gift, for a Shared Meal with Two drinks. What we actually received was an entree that was super spicy, and resembled cat food to look at. This had eight pieces of cucumer, eight crispy waffer things and some lettuce also on the plate. The entree was $17 and the... More

Great location at the site of old Chez Eelco at top of Trafalgar Street - nice Asian fusion food - tasty - good atmosphere on a Saturday night and the restaurant squeezed us in.

My wife and I had a voucher for a shared platter for 2 with a Champaign cocktail. I have never been to Harry's, nor had I heard of it before hand. We really had no idea what type or sort of meals there were available but our waitress pointed out what was available to us on our voucher. I felt... More

Called in for drinks before heading off for dinner. Being a Friday night, it was very busy but we still managed to find seats - and we were a large group. Service was good and the staff friendly. Would like to go back on a quieter night.

You are spoilt for choice of excellent eateries in Nelson. Harry's is well worth a visit with a range of interesting food - nice to have a spicy Thai curry. Good friendly service located in central Nelson. Expect the unexpected.

Would certainly recommend this restaurant. We had the shared 4 course meal for $70 for 2 people. All 4 courses were lovely and great flavours in all of them. Our waitress was really helpful recommending dishes too.

SOO FANCY! definitly felt awkward strolling in as backpackers to this bar. We ordered quickly and left. Even the bar man seemed a little "scoffing" as we ordered..... But if we had the money and the fancy clothes id give it a shot.

My wife and I were visiting Nelson for the first time and wanted an evening meal. We looked at most of the restaurants in the same street and plumped for Harry's. We didn't want a full meal, just starters and sweets. The staff were superb; the food was fantastic (beautifully prepared and full of flavour); and the place had a... More

Harry's has a great fit out in a great location in Nelson. It seemed strange that a bistro style restaurant served Thai food and the food was over priced for what it was. Our waitress did an admirable job but the front of house person was downright rude and unwelcoming and did not support her at all, preferring to spend... More

right in the best street in Nelson for eating, you are well supported by top restaurants all around but if you like good food a little spicy you cannot go past Harry's. I visit Nelson a lot and will usually try to fit in a feed from here, only on this trip it was business dinner and i learnt a... More
