Dropped into FORDS for lunchtime drinks, and got a prime table outside, so we watched the world go by along Trafalgar Street. We didn’t eat, but saw others and the menu, and it looked good.

Good, attentive service; prices as expected

Busy Saturday evening but we were able to get a table. Service was friendly and efficient. Our food came without a long wait and was very tasty. However, the highlight was the Jafa martini. A must have creamy shot of chocolate and orange.

Coffee was so-so, uneventful and would not go back for he coffee alone. Tapas arrived, with no glass of wine, that was forgotten about. My tapas was dry & uneatable, tasted like cardboard, so did not finish.I told the waiter that mine was uneatable & got no response. My plate was taken away, we were charged full price. With so many other wonderful place to eat at in the area, we have no intention of going back.

We just had a afternoon drink and snacks here outside on a hot nelson day and it was really nice. The staff were super friendly and did recommend the mushrooms which were to die for

The staff were mostly ok, a couple had attitude I am assuming they were employed for eye candy duties!
The food was small and average, the eggs were flavourful with basil and Parmesan but rubbery, the toast looked like dried bread and tasted the same. Why is there a campaign to have colourless toast!
Not a welcoming experience, would I go back, yes if there were no other choice!
It felt chaotic to be honest.
