Beautiful food, friendly and attentive service. The restaurant offers a degustation menu of 10 courses, all of which were innovative and delicious. They catered well to our dietary requirements as well. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and will be recommending Nel to our friends!

From the moment we entered the venue, we could tell the level of sophistication and the quality to come was going to be 'on point'. The set menu makes the ordering process a dream; no course disappointed! The open kitchen created warmth and ambiance and the wait staff complimented this perfectly by being extremely attentive. Would have no hesitation in recommending this venue...

Amazing! nel never disappoints, wonderful menu and I love that I never know what each visit will hold. Loved the melon balls this time, heaven with the liquid centre.

Went for the Christmas menu, pretty basic, which is fine but if your doing basic then do it well. This wasn’t great and it felt overpriced.

Unfortunately I was a little under the weather, so I couldn't really taste the food. My girlfriend on the other hand said the food was nice. I might have to come back another time to try it out again. Service was nice and the food came out quick. So thats a plus. Also, when I made the booking, I was sure to request for a birthday candle on the dessert or some sort for my friend I was dining with. I think they forgot.
