My favourite restaurant bar none, when I want to splash out.

We got in without a reservation - just barely. Service was not too great - took a while to place our order and get food. But the food was good, with a nice cheese platter for dessert.
Luckily our lodge owner was able to advise us to make a reservation and she did that for us as it is very busy in Hopgoods and one can see why. The mains menu is quite short but we had their fish of the day,...More
Probably the best in Nelson. Consistently outstanding but can be noisy. Great service, superb food and choice. Just a wee bit special.
We have frequented Hopgood's many times over the past several years when in Nelson for our annual 2 month vacation. The service is superb, wine list has some spectacular bargains (Filsell from Grant Burge @ $65 NZ is a steal) and the food is sublime....More
Beautifully prepared and presented food. Kevin Hopgoods is a fabulous chef and we eat here as often as possible. The restaurant is located in the heart of Nelson. I always recommend reservations as the seating is limited and they fill up early.
I have eaten here on many occasions and whenever we entertain overseas guest this is always our first choice.
Fantastic melt in your mouth food and friendly service. Restaurant is small and cosy, though can be noisy when fully booked out, which is most of the time. Definitely worth a dining experience.
