Service was excellent too.

One of the city's most popular restaurants for quality cuisine and ambiance. Great location near the top of Trafalgar st, the menu is executed with skill and likely to delight the most discerning critic.

We ate here on our second night after reading the reviews. On Mondays and Tuesday they only do the bistro menu two courses for $45 or three for 55 dollars.i must say the food was excellent very well cooked and presented to perfection. Almost “fine dining “ standard but a fraction of the cost.
The wines we had were locally produced in Nelson.
We tried thier blue cheese with walnut bread to finish which was simply divine.
Service was acceptable, but will return for the food if we are in Nelson again.

We went for a special birthday meal and each chose the 5 course tasting menu, one with the accompanying wines, the other without. Oh boy! The food for each course was perfect and could not be bettered. Beautifully cooked core ingredients with wonderful additional flavours and textures. The freshest of ingredients have been used and melt in the mouth. We loved every single mouthful as our wiped clean plates testified. A great experience. Go and taste for yourselves. You will NOT be disappointed. Make sure you book well in advance for your choice of days and times for your table.

I came here in December last year and it was a great meal so I had high expectations
Hopgoods didn’t fail and I had wonderful food and service to match
The ambiance is relaxing and decor is luxurious and comfortable
I had the beef which was delicious
I also opted for the Afogato dessert which was on a whole different level of amazing
Very highly recommended!
