Went here with my family who are mostly all vegetarian. There aren't typically many vegetarian options on the menu but the restaurant was accommodating to us. We told them beforehand of our dietary requirements but they did still bring us some canapés which contained animal ingredients. When we pointed this out they corrected things, but generally I'd say be a... More

My husband surprised me with a night out here. We were not aware it was only a taster menu but we were up for the challenge! The staff were very welcoming & informative. The food is 'fusion' style with some odd mixtures & concoctions! It was well presented, Hot & mostly very tasty. They did a Waldorf Cocktail..a Waldorf Salad... More

I was here with two female friends for a girls night. Atmosphere was great but the food was a bizarre mish mash, sort of fusion stuff that didn't fuse, as far as I was concerned. I seem to be in the minority as both my friends have been back since but I haven,t. Did look at the menu again recently... More

A wonderful surprise, such a great place to eat locally. Nelson Street have a fairly unique offering, instead of the traditional starter & main they suggest 3 plates from the menu (think Spanish raccione), one each from a set of fish, vegetable or meat selections or any combination of the three. This works extremely well; you get to try more... More

This restaurant has a light, airy decor; the background music is unobtrusive; there was a courteous and efficient waiter. So things started auspiciously. But there is confusion as to what this restaurant is trying to be. At one level, it is totally unsophisticated - the wine list, for instance, doesn't list years of production. At another, it is trying to... More

We've been several times, our last visit a few weeks ago to try the new small plates menu. I'm afraid that the whole offer doesn't really work for me as it's caught between two stools. It's not a fully blown Tasting Menu, typically 7-10 courses but 3 'small plates' followed by a dessert. Admittedly the food quality is excellent but... More

This was my first visit to Nelsons on the back of a strong recommendation and I was not disappointed. The food was very well presented and had a clean taste. I liked the approach to selecting the food - one plate per person from a fish, veg and meat course. We all selected different dishes and the five of us... More
