Went to the Sunday evening BBQ and had a good time. Great view of Nelson Dockyards. BBQ was good and not too expensive. They also had a steel drum band and a regular band, both very fun.

Fell into trap. Once we entered we realised it was just a massive tourist attraction. Not one local enjoying the “party”. The steel band was the only saving grace but apart from that don’t bother waste your time. We ended up leaving early
