Visited this restaurant mid week. Very good service, tasty food at a reasonable price for Nelson. Nice beer. Like the option of small and normal servings at different prices. Well worth a visit.

We had a very nice meal, it was typical German styled food both meat and vegetarian. The menu was easy to follow, a good selection of drinks and if we had been able to eat more the desserts looked good, we will try them next...More

The boys are definitely going back for the pork shank,which needs to be pre ordered. The service was great & we had a lovely evening.

We have eaten at Krauts many times, and not had a single bad experience. The service is always friendly and the food excellent. Now only open from the late afternoon (not for lunch) but still an excellent dining option in Nelson Central city.

brilliant atmosphere, excellent food and drinks - but be warned, the schnitzel feast is huge and the shanks even larger - mammoth, we thought it might've been! and the prices surprised, really excellent value for money

Excellent food that my entire family enjoyed. I have some very picky kids, but we all can agree that Kraut's is the place to eat when we want a nice place to go.

I have been at this restaurant a month ago. I was disappointed with the food, very basic and not particularly tasty. The service was disappointing too. I do not understand how this restaurant could gain the certificate of excellence!! A real mystery!!!
