Description: Urban Oyster Bar & Eatery is Nelson's newest and most innovative dining experience. Don't be afraid to put your elbows on the table and engage us and your fellow diners. Get to know us and what's inspiring us today. We'll be delivering the things we're currently passionate about on each plate we serve. We hope you come with a curious spirit ready for the experience of what an eatery is all about. Our menu changes regularly with respect to what we are into at the moment, whether it's an ingredient, band, chef or current event. Our goal is to make everyone feel like whanau - whether it is your first or fortieth time. We believe that serving up good juju isn't just in the food and drink, but in the attitude and atmosphere which makes Urban the perfect place to stop in and refuel. Our menu is innovative and fresh .. Enjoy a freshly shucked oyster or for the more courageous crispy pigs ears! We have no reservations which applies does not apply to groups of 8 or more. Feel free to share a table with some locals, or visitors for that matter. Eating is a sharing experience!

We shared six delicious tapas style plates between three of us. Each was beautifully presented, had a mouth melting mixture of flavours and made you just want to have more! Great service, humming atmosphere.

Our2nd visit and still an absolutely fantastic place to go. Sensational food and outstanding friendly staff. Clearly the owner knows how to run a restaurant. I wish there was something like this in Auckland.

We used trip advisor recommendations to get us to Urban Oyster Bar and we were not disappointed. We were there around 5:30pm and there were still tables available. Staff were welcoming and we had great service. The food was really, really delicious. I had a few oysters, and while not as good as Bluff oysters they were nicely done. The small plates we ordered were great to share and the dessert of 'pop n fresh, popcorn ice cream, lemon thyme meringue, berries, kettle corn' was a magic memory made. Can't wait to get back and try it again. This time I'm not sharing!
