Harry's Bar has a great atmosphere and really friendly staff. Loved the cocktails and craft beer on offer. Also has some yum food, would go again.

We were there for dinner on a Saturday and the restaurant itself was cool. The art on the walls, lighting and layout were all well done and helped to create a good atmosphere. The beer list was well above average with a few good craft beers making an appearance. The food however let it down. When the highlight of you meal was the prawn crackers at the start you know somethings wrong. I had the papaya salad and kung pao chicken...the salad was a little chewy and the chicken not quite balanced. Both extremely spicy but that didn't hide the sub par flavors. My partner had the chicken wings and pad Thai. Wings okay and pad Thai just average...his word was bland.

Worth heading along for drinks and snacks...maybe not for a 3 course dinner.

A group of us visited last night for dessert, as part of the annual Nelson moveable feast. The theme was 'Contemporary Kiwi". Of the 3 restaurants we visited, we all felt that this was the restaurant that had given least thought to the theme. The desserts provided were the same choice (or similar) to last year's 'hot and spicy' theme and the exact same as last week's 'hot and spicy' theme. This would have been a good time for the cooking team to come up with something that related to Kiwi food. Also, unlike the other two restaurants, the menu showed all 3 courses, not just the dessert. The desserts chosen by Harry's (which we shared the 4 options) were mainly rated as average by those present.

Inviting spot on a cold quiet night in Nelson. Nice surprise to find a thai menu - great squid with a glass of red, plus friendly staff.
