The food was very nice and the restaurant offers a range of local beers and wines. The owner was extreamly nice and friendly but the size of the portions were on the small size. With a larger portion it would have received an excellent

Dined here several times while staying at the Beachcomber in Nelson. We were very impressed by the wonderfully flavoursome food and charming staff who provided exceptional service. Enjoyed trying the delicious grazing plates and sampling the lovely local wines and beers. Especially recommend the lamb dish, perfectly cooked lamb with exquisite flavour combinations. Wonderfully sunny courtyard area for a relaxing drink too.

Great location looking over the park by the beach. The service was excellent and quick.
I had the fish which was so fresh and tasty my husband had the pork which was just as good. We do recommend a side plate to share if your hungry.
Excellent place to sit outside too
We will be back

We had a meal at the beachcomber restaurant, saltwater. It was ok. atmosphere was lacking. Service was average (lady was a bit uninterested)
we felt our meals were overpriced for what we got, They were just lacking the wow flavour factor. I got the steak and the two coin sized hashbrowns didnt do it for me.

So expensive for very little food. We were shocked at the meals, quality and quantity. Service was poor. No water at the table, no service at the table, we had to go to the bar to order.
