a truly wonderful evening with great friends; the food and service were of the highest calibre; Grant weaves magic from that little kitchen! Do not miss this when next in Nelson, and if you live here already, lucky you!

Didn't manage to get a review up until now. The service was excellent. Went for a friends birthday and the four of us had a marvellous time. Food was all on point. Stunningly presented and impeccable taste. 100% worth a visit.

Description
From an iconic 19th century cottage within the quiet city fringe of Nelson, with a maximum seating of just 28, it has garnered notoriety with discerning diners since quietly opening towards the end of 2009. With a passion for fine food, using only the freshest of local ingredients and combining them with internationally award winning culinary expertise to make dining out an occasion. A stellar wine list, including vintages carefully selected from vineyards locally and abroad. Intimate dining, comfortable high quality surroundings and attentive service; dining out the way it should be.
