My wife and I can't stay away from this little gem when we visit Nelson. The perfect date, guaranteed. Their wine selection never disappoints, even when they run out of an old favorite and have to suggest a new one. The staff are welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable, and charming. The manager, Adam, was especially helpful finding us the perfect wines (Hillside... More

Wonderful menu with imaginative tapas to choose among. Nice wines for pairings. We had no reservations but were able to enjoy a lovely meal on a Saturday night, one of the best of our week in Canada. Bravo to the chef!

We had a late lunch here and it was a good choice. We shared the fish tacos and the beet burger along with a couple of beers. The beet burger was so delicious with slices of roasted beets and goat cheese. We also had some gelato and it was also excellent. Can't wait to come here again.

The tapas are great but not Spanish style per say- which is what I think of when I think Tapas. The patio is one of the best in town and its a lovely place for an appetizer and a drink. Desserts are amazing too!

Had dinner here, which consisted of three of the tapas choices, shared. It was hard to decide since everything sounded so good. We were not disappointed! We were fortunate to get a table on the back patio, which overlooked the lake. Would absolutely go back for more!

We shared the potted duck, which was delicious, as well as Smoked Salmon Roulade, which we found a little disappointing. The best dish , hands down was the Roasted Broccolini with Lemon aioli, this was fresh, crisp and delicious, wine by the glass , a great assortment as well as bottles. A nice view from the patio.
