Great price with lovely staff. Nice to go to Cafe Affair where the staff don't keep on coming back to you every 5 mins while you are trying to enjoy your meal and asking if you would like another drink etc. The food is great,the price is good and on a suuny day which Nelson has plenty of is a great place to dine inside or out.

A table was booked well in advance, and a request made that we would need to leave to attend a Show, by 7 pm. The staff were welcoming, and friendly . The availability of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes were all attractively served and were good value.It was fun to see two of the group cooking meat at the table on the hot stones.Taking our orders on entering the restaurant,and being served quietly and efficiently we were able to leave by 7 pm. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and will return..

A positive experience, from the welcoming staff to the unusual and fun cook-it-yourself format. With no desire for leftovers, we were pleased with the perfectly satisfying "light" menu (picking the seafood and mini steak options). The outdoor dining was very pleasant.

Just popped in for a snack, had the most amazing beer battered chips with cheese, bacon and sour cream between us. Absolutely lovely. Also tried one of cask beers which was local; the one we wanted had only just been put on and wasn't ready. Went back two days later and had it to accompany another portion of the beer battered chips. We were not disappointed. We returned later the next week with an elderly friend with limited mobility and had the most wonderful meals, stone grilled steaks and stone grilled prawns and scallops. We had chosen to take her out to this restaurant on the basis that it provided good access and parking for someone with limited mobility. On all three visits the staff were very helpful and the ambience in the restaurant was very good. Very well suited to take someone with limited mobility the staff were very considerate of our friend's situation and were accommodating without making an issue out of it. Would certainly recommend it as a great place to eat. The only downside was the music in the early evening wasn't to our taste, either for us as a couple or our elderly friend. That is just personal choice though and doesn't really detract from the excellent food and service, that aside I still give this venue my best revue.
