We eat here a lot...breakfast at times but mostly dinner.

Where to start...the staff are attentive and professional, the different areas (indoor, outdoor, different bars) work well as a whole.

The Hangar 58 aviation theme is in everything. The walls, staff uniforms, toilet signs, napkins, glasses .....everything has been well thought out.

The food is great. We recently used Hangar 58 to celebrate a 21st birthday. It was the right choice. The staff made a great cake to order and we have some wonderful memories of the night.

The menu is imaginative and the food is consistently good and keeps bringing us back.

As locals we have a lot of good choices in nelson and this is currently at the top of our list for family dining.

definitely different, very quirky, slightly cheesy but very tasty. the service was prompt and helpful and the style of food and establishment was a little bit unusual. Everyone had an amazing meal and my friends commented on how amazingly perfect their steaks were.

Came here on one of my first nights in New Zealand, and found the staff so helpful explaining parts of the menu I didn't understand! I liked the decor and the idea, and the food (I had a chicken salad) was beautiful. Also walking distance from our hostel, which in the rain was ideal. Would definitely recommend.

Hangar 58 is one of our favourite places to hang out. I love the 'open from 7:58 till late'.
I also love that they are huge supporters of the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter Trust.

They have an outdoor courtyard and bar, and indoor bar, cafe and restaurant downstairs and upstairs they have a cool seating area with yet another bar.
The seating is funky with areas for both large groups and intimate corners.
The management & staff are always very friendly.
Kids and I especially love the innovative mocktails and the deep fried mozzarella cheese sticks are to die for!

Been here several times and always receive a warm welcome. Food is good and honest fare. Good atmosphere generally and good selection of beers. Nothing too much trouble for the staff.
