Situated on the banks of the Maitai River, at the heart of city centre of beautiful Nelson. You can sit back and relax, away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy our terrace in the sun, or find a cosy chair inside.
We specialise in delicious, seasonally inspired food, craft beers, wines from around New Zealand, and locally roasted coffee. We offer a full à la carte menu, serving breakfast and lunch all year round. Freshly baked scones and muffins in the morning, and delicious sweet treats through the day fill our display cabinet too.
We’re passionate about creating good food. Food that’s not only healthy and delicious, but also good for our bodies, good for our environment and good for the soul. So when it comes to our food, local, seasonal and sustainable is the only way!
You see, the food choices we make have a significant impact on the environment – which, when you’re surrounded by the beauty of the Nelson landscape is something, we believe, that everyone should be passionate about.
The simple truth is, regardless of your thoughts on farming methods and sustainability, there’s literally nothing like the taste of fresh fruit and vegetables at their seasonal best.
There’s something so good about eating food that’s just been picked. It tastes better, it’s better value and of course it’s a better deal for the planet.
WE LOVE GOOD FOOD
Success in this industry is so much more than just providing great food, it’s about the experience you offer and how you make people feel. And having grown up in the industry, it’s something you could say is in our blood. When we were kids, if you wanted pocket money you had to wait tables for it, so it’s ingrained in us, and we just love it!
We love people, we love creating great food and most of all we love our River Kitchen!
