We had dinner at Harry's and it was very very good. Absolutely delicious and well presented. We sat outside on a nice evening and had a very good meal. The wine list is extensive and very reasonable. If you have the time in nelson try Harry's for dinner

Good selection of beer wines and cocktails. The staff were very helpful on the beer choices and the peanuts Pics were excellent. Serv is was good even though they were busy. We didn't eat but the food being brought out looked fresh and hot. Great place to just chill out with a drink.
