Have dined at The Tides 4times now and on every occassion have been so impressed that felt compelled to write review this time. This is fine dining at a very reasonable price, we enjoyed the 3 course menu selection for $44.90 including tea/coffee and every course was just devine. The staff are very courteous and friendly, they have a very extensive menu to choose from but the best value of all is the 2 or 3 course dinner options, excellent value for money. The Tides is our all time favourite restaurant in Nelson and certainly highly recommend it.

The set menu is incredible value, you have to experience it to believe it! Setting over the Maitai river is beautiful. Trust me this restaurant is worth every penny.

No detail was too small for the attention of the staff. Food was beautifully presented and delicious, especially the sticky toffee pudding, yum just thinking about it.

I found the set 2 x course menu excellent value at just under 40 NZ dollars. Soup and rib eye steak - both delicious. My husband opted for the a la carte with chicken and brie in filo pastry and rack of lamb. Lovely views over the Maiti river and good service. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful.
