We all had the eggs benedict, while there was a bit of water on my plate from the eggs the taste and presentation was good. Excellent coffee and a great location. Certainly go here again.

What a wonderful find overlooking the river with only a pathway between. The service was spot-on and there was a good selection of food for lunch all of which was very tempting. In fact so much so that we bought 2 divine slices to take away with us for afternoon tea. We discovered it on our last day in Nelson--a pity as we would have dined there more if we'd known about it.

Every Saturday we meet friends for coffee at River Kitchen. From the first time the staff have been welcoming and willing to rearrange tables if our group is larger than usual. They knew from the second visit what coffees we would like. The coffee is great and the food tho simple is tasty and well presented. We have recommended it to others who have had exactly the same welcome and service as we have. We'll done River Kitchen!!!!

Did the job on a public holiday. Children's play area is too close to, and blocks access to, the toilets. A simple rearrangement would fix that. One of our orders had ingredients not explained on the menu or by waitress, so had to be replaced.

After hard day in the garden, walked the dog to this great relaxing spot by the river in central Nelson. Recently changed hands so wanted to check out, Selected the local wines and beers, which were perfect - a good wine selection we thought and the beer was wow wow wow. Love the location right next to the river and we got the last of the evening sun. Ordered the platter for 2, which was outstanding and consisted of home made breads and chutneys, generous portions of Salmon, Fish Cakes, Mussels, Fritters, Olives - and very reasonably priced too. Tried another beer, a 7.1 IPA which at first thought was too strong but went perfectly with the platter and was set for another but wife dragged me away. Very good and recommended and like the way the hosts have made the inside setting homely and informal. Even a bowl of water for the dog was provided. Recommended.
