We ate at this restaurant and bar a couple of time during our stay in Nelson. The food was always good and it was reasonably priced.

We stopped in here for a late breakfast. I would say it was good value for money, the kids iced chocolate drinks where to die for - the food was good and a good price, the staff where friendly and the atmosphere was comfortable. We where more than happy :)

We went to here for dinner and I must say it is fantastic value for money. I had a pan fried fish and my partner had the ribs. Both of us were raving about how good our meals were.
