A cornerstone of the Nelson dining scene, the Boat Shed is famed for its uninterrupted views of Tasman Bay alongside modern, international fare.
Perched above the clear water of Tasman Bay, this little haven fully immerses you in Nelson’s picturesque scenery; the sailboats, ships coming in and out of the working port, and surrounded by the beautiful Kahurangi Mountain range.
It should come as no surprise that seafood is the star of the menu. Begin with some freshly shucked oysters, Mills Bay mussels, or the Ōra King salmon tartare with a stunning yuzu crème fraiche and citrus gel.
Sip a glass of one of New Zealand’s best wines as the sun makes its way down for one of Nelson’s famous sunsets. If seafood is not for you, enjoy some of New Zealand’s finest lamb or beef for dinner. The Boat Shed prides itself on sourcing fresh local and seasonal ingredients. Current winter favourites include whole roasted flounder, lamb rack and prime fillet steak. Vegetarians can enjoy the delicate flavour of a garlic and cheese soufflé or artichoke ravioli with a creamy undercurrent of goat’s cheese.
‘Trust the Chef’ is the Boat Shed’s famous set menu option, where you can also leave the wine pairing to the experienced staff - this makes for an exceptional experience of dining with the most beautiful view in Nelson.
