This restaurant was highly recommended by our host @Parataune Lodge, so we thought “let’s give it a try”.
We entered without any reservation, so we had to wait for 15 minutes. A great time to take a nice G&T as an aperitive.
Then we were brought to our table and could sit down for what turned out afterwards to be “the nicest dinner” we had in New-Zealand.
(To be completely honest, we’ve enjoyed almost every meal we had in NZ)
We are Europeans, so we are spoiled with our French & Italian cuisines, our perfect wines…..
The dinner we had @ Hopgood’s can by far fulfil our high standards.

Dined here for an evening meal, my husband had the Angus steak and I had the lamb rump with the fried broccoli, both meals were really well presented and tasted delicious, my husband enjoyed his local beer and I had a cherry cocktail which was nice. The young man that looked after us was very attentive and chatty, I would rate this restaurant with top marks, we will definitely be back to dine here. First class!

Our stay in Nelson had been the best of our entire trip in New Zealand, and this restaurant was a big part of the reason why! Food was absolutely amazing, cooked perfectly and the perfect sized portions! The recommendations from the staff in regards to the appropriate wine to go with the meal were spot on! Highly recommended

We visited for our 30th wedding anniversary so were looking for something a bit more special then usual - and they did not disappoint.
The menu was spot on - I doubt anyone would look at it an not come up with at least one obvious choice.
The wait staff were also very good - attentive but not pushy and they knew the menu well.

This is a first class restaurant with great flavours and plate presentation. Make sure you book in advance as it is very popular. This was one of our best meals in New Zealand.
