We visited during our stay in Nelson. The food is very authentic and tastes great. Service is also good. Best place that we tried in Nelson.

We loved the tacos so much, we were tempted to go back again later the same day! We will be dreaming of these tacos until our next visit to Nelson!

Had an ok time. The cocktails are OK. Food's OK. Atmosphere, kind of OK. Bit pokey of a space and seems to be the best located place for a look-at-me thing with the gold-fishy windows or Baker patio. Nice that it gets the sun all...More
