The antipasto platter was sumptuous and had us full to the brim. The evening atmosphere, winter but warm with that view over the harbour, was perfect. Happy service just made it a good night out.

Our family group including a toddler had lunch here. We were all very happy with our meals, particularly the fish and fish cake meals. We thought the prices very reasonable, even the wine. We will certainly come again next time we are in Nelson.
