“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

This restaurant is associated with the Grand Mercure Nelson Monaco hotel. Food was fantastic and service knowledgeable and friendly. The view is of a small duck pond, then across a road to the water. You may wish to sit outside on the wood patio for a pre-dinner drink.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

I am usually suspicious of hotel premise restaurants ... but this was genuinely excellent. Great food and great service. My wife had salmon and loved it ... I had the chef's special (John Dory) and loved it.

“Beautiful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Just had a meal at this restaurant and found the food and service fantastic. Yes it is a little expensive bit the food is great. Nice restaurant. Lovely outlook. Limited selection but excellent ingredients and cooked to perfection. Problem with short menu is you'd only come a couple of times if staying on the property.

The setting was lovely, even on a wet Nelson evening! Food was first class and our waitress was attentive, informative and amusing. All round a good pace to enjoy a meal.
