Absolutely loved our night here - the food is fantastic and the service was friendly, personal and attentive. Everything was amazing, unpretentious and genuine. Really worth a visit!

Lovely, interesting food

This is the sort of place where you can't make reservations, young chefs try out new flavour combinations, and the staff call you 'dude'. Lovely, interesting food.

Crispy pork heaven

The pork hock is the new greatest dish in town. Had a bunch of out of town friends and the food really delivered. Thank Urban team.

Delicious +++

This restaurant was initially overlooked as thought it looked expensive but disillusioned by all the run of the mill cafes around town, we got a recommendation by a local and it also came up under the 10 best cafes when you google looking for a great place to eat. We had lunch here during the week on a Thursday so it was quiet. We sat in the window watching Nelson go by and enjoyed an absolutely delicious meal. We had an amazing waitress- helpful, friendly and informative. She knew her stuff ! The portions of the share plates often came in 3's and as there was only 2 of us she offered to adjust it to 2's so we could order more of a variety- an offer that went down very well. We had a number of dishes - the Beef Sliders, Ceviche Style Fish Taco, Brumby Prawn Steamed Buns, and our absolute favourite was the Fresh Fish Escabeche which was delicious- crispy rice, tasty togarashi seasoning/sauces which had a ginger and citrus tang - we had to reorder this as it was extremely delicious. The dishes were delivered by the chefs themselves. We treated ourselves to a couple of cocktails (Son of a Peach and Show Us Ya Spritz) and these were very yummy - strong and tasty with generous portions. I was told this restaurant had recently sold so presume this was still the old owner operating it and can only hope the quality and service is upheld so when we return to Nelson again, we can again enjoy everything this place had to offer. And further, my initial hesitation on the price- we were pleasantly surprised at what we paid considering the enjoyment we got from this experience.
