La Gourmandise - great menu, something for everyone, delicious food. Friendly staff, attentive and helpful without breathing down your neck all the time. I had the 'Saumon et sa croute d’amande’ which is to die for. Baked salmon with a almond crust served with leeks fondue and gourmet potatoes. My friends opted for the ‘Duck confit galette’ which was the... More

Lunch of confit duck galettes with potatoes and green salad, croquet monsieur's for the kids. Lovely crepes for desserts. Service was friendly and good. Nice French music creating a really nostalgic atmosphere. Relaxed, fun and excellent value for money.

Wow! Delightful service and delicious to say the least. Thank you La Gourmandise for fantastic food at great prices. One of the best meals ever!! Love the atmosphere where we could actually talk to our friends and were not competing with music. Such an enjoyable night. Thank you!!

La Gourmandaise is consistently good, whether its brunch, lunch or dinner. I've eaten crepes and galettes and ordered from the main dinner menus - each time the dishes are superb. The staff are very good and the wine list perfectly matched. Always busy, so be sure to book.

This is definitely one of my favourite places. Beautiful crepe for brunch/lunch, delicious (and very reasonably priced) dishes for dinner. Casual yet cosy atmosphere, suitable for couple, friends, or family. Will be returning, many times!

We've eaten here quite a few times over the last couple of years. The food is always consistently good. The service is fantastic. And we always leave with money in our wallet. We've only eaten off of the dinner menu once (it was lovely), as the true standout dishes are the galettes and crepes. My wife and I tend towards... More

This is one of my very favourite restaurants in Nelson. I get the vegetarian galette almost every time I go but everything I've ever tasted here is superb! You just can't go wrong when you choose to dine here. It wouldn't let me complete this review without choosing what sort of visit and a date but this is my "go... More
