We shared three dishes - mushroom risotto (rich and delicious), beef carpaccio which had so many great elements, and crispy duck with great pickled mushrooms and parsnip purée which made up for the not-crispy skin on the duck. We finished with a tasty coconut cheesecake....More

My wife and I can't stay away from this little gem when we visit Nelson. The perfect date, guaranteed. Their wine selection never disappoints, even when they run out of an old favorite and have to suggest a new one. The staff are welcoming, friendly,...More
