Description: From an iconic 19th century cottage within the quiet city fringe of Nelson, with a maximum seating of just 28, it has garnered notoriety with discerning diners since quietly opening towards the end of 2009. With a passion for fine food, using only the freshest of local ingredients and combining them with internationally award winning culinary expertise to make dining out an occasion. A stellar wine list, including vintages carefully selected from vineyards locally and abroad. Intimate dining, comfortable high quality surroundings and attentive service; dining out the way it should be.

“Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

What a Special Place to Dine. All the trims and frills for a very special dinner. Great food and wine and a cosy atmosphere. They just have the edge over others for "that little touch".

“Service and ambiance still need work”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Service was slow and lacked good music and atmosphere. Food was good and both lamb and beef dished lived up to the rewards they hold.

“So relaxing!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Eating here made me feel so relaxed by the time I left I felt like I had a massage. Beautiful environment and service. Great menu. Bit expensive but not considering how gourmet it all is. Going again as soon as possible!

“High quality food, wonderful staff”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

We dined here for dinner and were more than happy with all aspects of the experience. Staff had excellent knowledge of the menu and wine lists and were very accommodating of my gluten/dairy free needs. Food was exceptional, definitely quality produce and presentation.

“Well worth seeking out”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Dined at Mint on a Tuesday night with no reservation. Staff were accommodating and explained the menu well. I had the fish of the day which was excellant and my husband had the pork belly which he enjoyed. Save room for dessert it was delicious. I'd like to come back and try the dessert sampler. Highly recommend Mint.
