This is the third time I have visited this restaurant and as per previous visits it was outstanding. I had the Grilled Haloumi Entree, the other guest Confit Duck, for mains we had the Angus Eye Fillet and Snapper. All were beautifully presented, the fish seated perfectly and everything tasted divine. Staff were professional, knowledgeable and friendly.The wine list had an intelligent selection of good quality and varied New Zealand wines. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Looking forward to going back for breakfast soon as I have heard really positive things about their home made hash browns !

I have dined at Fords for breakfast, lunch and dinners and have enjoyed the food at all times. Good, consistent quality food at reasonable prices. The service has always been welcoming and special requests have been accommodated for groups when people have requested items not on the menu.

The location in central Nelson makes this a great place to stop for a coffee and muffin (or full breakfast), a good priced lunch, or just for a quick drink and a snack. There are some outdoor tables available as well.

It can be noisy inside although they do have upstairs seating which can be more suitable for business or intimate meals.

Like a good wine this restaurant has improved over the last two years we have been frequenting it. The food has always been good but the menu has been refined and the inclusion of a tapas menu and the owners willingness to be flexible in their menu choices is a credit to them. Also to do this and maintain the high standard of presentation is impressive. While their wine list is good it would benefit from a few more offerings of a standard to compliment the food. Otherwise this is a worthy contender for top Nelson restaurant with a bit more of a softer warmer feel than its neighbour
