The restaurant has an outside seating area which would be great in the summer. We had a table inside overlooking the estuary. The menu was quite comprehensive and reasonably priced. We enjoyed our meal and the American waiter was very friendly. Although there were a few people at the bar , the restaurant lacked a bit of atmosphere because of lack of diners which is a pity because we thought it was a great place to eat. I guess it was midweek and we were quite late arriving at the hotel.

Hi there BBTrisha

Thanks for your review/feedback, it was lovely to read that you found the menu comprehensive and reasonably priced. The view of the Waimea Estuary and the Kahurangi Mountain range in the distance is pretty special, even more so on those evenings when we have a great sunset.

Great to know that Tommy (the American waiter) looked after you in his usual friendly style.

We look forward seeing you back again some time soon.

Warm regards

Who would have thought the best restaurant was so close to the airport!
Highly recommended, great service, delicious wine and cheese selection. Hard to choose from the menu, the calamari was delicious!

Hi there Lee C

Thanks for your great review (and my apologies for the delayed response)! Fantastic that you had such a great dining experience with us - great service, delicious wine and cheese selection - can't ask for more really! (That calamari is a favourite of mine, I must be overdue to get reacquainted with it!).

I get the impression you're not local - so next time you're in Nelson - make sure you come back (and we have a new menu coming some time soon).

cheers
