Awesome service despite being very busy. All at the table enjoyed the food. I had the ribs and they were great. Caesar salad looked pretty tasty too. Only downside was parking.

We ate here on our last evening in Nelson, and it was a lovely place to have dinner and see the sun go down; we had very good fish and salad, and the staff were pleasant and helpful too. A nice evening.

Styx is the perfect place for great food, friendly staff and a relaxing environment. It is perfect at any time of the day for coffee and a muffin or a full meal. Adore the Styx on the Beach cocktail and the fish & chips meal...More

Best antipasto platter in NZ And fries. Wharf views, no loud music, great for small family groups, children’s menu high chairs and genuinely friendly staff. Been consistent each time I’ve been in Nelson

Had a lovely meal. Shared Calamari as a starter, delicious. Mocktail enjoyed by my daughter. I had the surf and turf special and my daughter had a salmon pizza. We finished off with a tiramisu and chocolate mousse.

Excellent food, staff were great too. We had chowder (excellent) and entree size was perfect, really nice homemade bread with it. And also had the chicken burger it was delicious, good size. Coffee too was great.
