“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Great food, great atmosphere, great staff. I recommend the rabbit main or the fish of the day main, especially if it is john dory with chorizo. I love going to this restaurant and everyone I have talked to also love it.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Easily one of the best restaurants in Nelson. The food is consistently wonderful and you can see that the chef and staff enjoy their jobs.

The atmosphere is not too formal so you can still be casual, and the service has always been top notch and very professional.

Good local wine selection.

Recommend you make a reservation as it can be very busy.
