Our Restaurant …

River Kitchen is situated in the Nelson city centre on the banks of the Maitai River in Nelson.
Away from the hustle and bustle, relax on our terrace in the sun, or find a cosy chair inside.
Enjoy delicious, seasonally inspired food, craft beers, wines from around New Zealand, and locally roasted coffee.
We have 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.
A selection of our products are also available to purchase to take home: Bags of our toasted muesli and toffee popcorn, jars of our seasonal preserves and preserved lemons. Feel free to pop in just to browse.
