A table by the window in the beautiful sunshine, friendly efficient service and food which was faultless. Drinks were served quickly and great recommendations were given on local wines!
We enjoyed sharing fresh calamari to start followed by on the stone dining of fresh prawns and scollaps and lamb skewers - mmmmh! Will definitely return when back in nelson next.
The only negative was people were waiting for tables by the bar and as soon as we had finished eating we felt like we were constantly being watched and couldn't relax letting our food settle and finishing our drinks as someone obviously wanted our table. As soon as we stood up to leave a lady came straight over to sit at our table, which wasn't very professional as a waiter should seat people!

Always a priority to have a meal here if in Nelson and usually stone-grill steak. The steak was tough and not enjoyable. Shame.

Enjoyed our meal of steak on a hot stone. Perfectly nice and good value, rather than anything too special. Would eat there again if wanted a cheap steak meal.

A bit busy for quiet conversation.
Helpful, friendly staff.
Varied menu cooked and served efficiently.
Wine a bit expensive, but a good variety of wine, beer and others.
