The restaurant went out of its way to get us seated on
Valentines Day without a reservation. The owner was super
friendly and the food was very good.

We chose Fords and were not disappointed. The calamari was great for my entree and the Angus fillet was excellent with crayfish and crab ravioli. Desserts were great too and the wine list good. All in all a great meal with very good service and good coffee to end. Highly recommend !

Food was amazing. Calamari was the best I've had. Atmosphere great. Sat outside on a sunny afternoon. Staff very friendly but had to wait long periods to order more. Apart from this, is a great restaurant.

We were walking around Nelson looking for somewhere to eat not certain what we wanted. We discounted a few places but decided to eat here at one of their street tables. The place had a bit of a buzz about it and the staff were pretty friendly. The food was well prepared and presented but not served quickly, we were not in a rush so no problem. We paid around NZ$ 120 for two mains and a couple of glasses of wine each.

We went back the next day for a couple of flat whites NZ$ 8 again a delay but also an apology for it.
