We booked late but no problem getting a table by the window overlooking the marina for us and two kids on a busy Thursday night. Very nautical theme going on inside, good menu and selection of drinks including local beer (a lager) on tap. We had the mussels and battered scallops as starters, and both had the salmon wrapped in pancetta as a main. Kids had a selection from the kids menu. Dessert for them was an ice cream cone, but there was also cheesecake and pecan pie which were both great. Meals were great value and we left well satisfied.

Reef and Beef, salmon steaks, seafood meals.... all excellent. Fish and chips were great too. A nice atmosphere overlooking the water. Dont gohere unless you are prepared for a wait in peak times. It is hard to find but a jewel when it comes to seafood meals. Sweets were awesome too.

Overlooking the yacht harbour this restaurant specialises in local seafood and is top class. Have been here many times, taking family and friends and never had a bad meal.

Everytime we visit Nelson, we just have to have a meal at the Anchor Bar & Grill. I really don't know anywhere else in NZ that you can indulge in Battered Scallops or Whitebait, of the quality that is on offer, and, at such reasonable prices.
If you love the aforementioned delicacies, just don't miss this establishment!!
