Came here for lunch on a Thursday, we sat outside on the veranda in the sun, it was stunning. I ordered the salmon which was amazing! So many flavours. The service was fantastic and friendly, cant wait to go back soon.

Set in old Melrose House, this cafe/restaurant is excellent. Whilst the range of main courses is not huge,nor the servings enormous the food is fresh, delicious and beautifully presented.

The wine list goes beyond what one would expect in a small restaurant so don't be afraid to try some of the excellent choices.

The choice of seating includes an option to dine on the verandah of Melrose with a garden view whilst there is indoor seating for those who prefer that option.

The attentive staff provide excellent service which enhances the dining experience.

I enjoyed one of the best meals I have eaten in Nelson here, and was unaware of its existence until introduced by a friend.

Highly recommended.

I went here with the whanau for high tea. I'm not a tea drinker or a cake eater, but my sisters and mum very much are. Having said that, I really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere is lovely and the staff are polite and friendly. Good value for money too.

Firstly, definitely book early for high tea...

We really enjoyed our afternoon high tea in the perfect setting of an old house in lovely gardens.

Delicious savory and sweet treats and freshly brewed tea. Recommended.
