    The Salmon skewers with the curry mayo sauce is really savory and light at the same time. Also, the arugula salad, Nelson dip, lollipop lamb chops are all delicious. The wine is well priced too!

    The fried egg club has an amazing curried mayo- the perfect breakfast sandwich! And if you come for dinner, the lamb chops are pretty phenomenal. Plus, their side salads have THE best dressing.

    We preferred the plebeian fare: A classic "ploughman's lunch" featuring, in addition to good bread, cheese, and sausage, a pickled beet salad, sliced green apple. Read more

    Here once a week for lunch for a reason. Fish of the day always a treat. Mac n Cheese excellent as expected. Lollipop lamb chops a personal favorite.

    Go to Nelson Blue and have their amazing green-lipped mussels in a coconut curry broth and the chicken kebabs. The atmosphere is a nice getaway from the seaport tourism.
