I know it has been open for a little while now but I finally got round to trying the Nelson Street Cafe. A cool place to eat that would grace any metropolitan area and it was full and it was a Tuesday night! Lucky Buckingham, I will be going again!

We have eaten here lots as a couple, but never taken our children, 9 and 13, until recently. We went on Father's Day in June for Sunday lunch. Nelson Street is not normally open for Sunday lunch, so we were keen to try their take on the British classic. Beautiful roasts for the whole family, beef and pork with all... More

Went for a quiet early evening dinner. Service was excellent and the food really outstanding. The wine list is good, good value and presents an imaginative range of flavours and tastes. One thing about this restaurant I like is the fact that it is not overstuffed with seating. The atmosphere is very good without being cramped.

Nice unobtrusive service, food was very good, the fish just as nice as Rick Steins where we ate last week. This was our first visit as we now have family nearby, and we certainly will be eating there again.

Went for a catch up meal with friends. Food was really good, but service was very, very slow...apparently staff shortage.

We were in for the formula 1 and Nelson Street Cafe came highly recommended. We had the best dinner we've ever had in all of the UK. We are already planning to be back for dinner during the F1 next year! Actually I'm hoping to be back before then. Great food, great service and great atmosphere.

We were in Buckingham for a week on business and walked past Nelson Street Cafe a few times. It was always full, and so we made a reservation. We were seated in a beautiful section of the restaurant. The deco was nice, the staff seemed friendly and we were looking forward to the dining experience. Sadly, this was a shocking... More

I like the atmosphere here, I like the food, I like the waiter knew what he was talking about when it came to the wine list although I do find their somewhat expensive. My fist visit here the bartender recommended a glass of wine whilst we waited for our table and 2 glasses cost as much as a bottle. I... More
