“Top Nosh - Hello Margaret”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Between 4 we had: Pork Belly, Beef Wellington, Fish of the Day and Seafood Chowder. All meats were cooked to perfection, the Fish I didn't get to try and the chowder was chock FULL of seafood; prawns, fish, scallop. After the meal have coffee in a BOWL. Absolutely top notch... and thanks to Margaret for looking after us.
PS On a rainy day be careful where you park. You may not be able to get to your car due to the deep puddles.

“Great Grape Escape”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Loved the setting. Close to Nelson, a 15 or less minute drive. Nice gift shop, wine tasting bar, cheese shop nearby. Eating outside in the garden was wonderful. Beautiful flowers and animals (bunnies and an alpaca nearby). Great menu. We went back twice. Does not open until 10 am but serves brunch. Nice menu. Should not miss

The outdoor setting it so beautiful and relaxing, that I just love to eat here. There is a wide variety of dishes on the menu and the staff are all helpful and pleasant. All the food is superbly prepared.
