The only place I know I will 100% like the food and the service!!! The staff are always friendly, even if we're squeezing in as the last customers for a late night wine or hot chocolate... the food is so good I even try fish here, and I don't even eat fish!

What a find! When you walk into Hopgood's, you immediately sense the style, good taste and commitment to a happy customer. The personnel are more than welcoming ... and remember your name on the 2nd visit! As we are planning a return trip to Nelson, New Zealand in a few months, and having spoken with locals and recent visitors, the... More

What a fantastic meal! No food envy going on here. Every dish of every course was sensational. And the service was just as good too. We will definitely go back next time we are in Nelson.

We were sent on a mystery trip to Nelson, being none the wiser we searched some locals opinions of a good spot for dinner and they did not disappoint! Was a great meal! Food was perfectly cooked with great flavouring. Staff were friendly and efficient. Great spot for couples!

Honestly one of the most delightful dining experiences I've had the pleasure of enjoying in recent times. Everything was superb, lovely and warm on a cool winter's night, friendly, welcoming but professional service and just really lovely food. Adored every mouthful and would happily order the same again tomorrow if I could. Expectations well and truly exceeded!
