This was an excellent meal - very good price. Good indoor and outdoor space with very friendly staff. Excellent choices on the menu.

A group of 5 of us went for dinner towards the end of December. We were greeted upon our arrival at the restaurant but it all went downhill from there. We waited for ages for a staff member to take our drinks and food order after which the drinks arrived quite promptly as did the entree's. We then waited a very long time for our mains and during the wait a waitress asked if we would like to see the dessert menu. We had to tell her that we were actually still waiting for our mains. We then saw our mains come out and watched as they were taken to the wrong table. Upon realising their mistake they eventually found their way to us. The 'Gourmet Fish & Chips' were okay. Its hard to mess up fish and chips, the fish was nice but the chips were soggy and I failed to see what made them gourmet. Two of our party ordered steak done done medium. One was medium but the other was very well done, in fact it was nearly cremated. All in all it was quite a dissapointing dining experience and I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.

Great food and friendly staff, busy place on Saturday and we found out why. Excellent seafood and large portions, awesome desert with a special birthday drink served up from the bar. A bit of a wait for food but worth it. Starting 55 on the right track! Life is good in Nelson!

This was a fantastic dining experience for our family. We had a five year old with us who was immediately offered a colouring book. They then put his order in straight away and had food in front of him while we were still deciding on our orders - fantastic work!
Our meals were excellent, we all had something in the fish line and it was all really fresh and cooked to perfection. There was a wide selection of desserts and the ones we had were just delightful. It wasn't cheap but we didn't skimp so that's our fault!
