Make a Reservation at Boat Shed Cafe

Currently the Boat Shed Cafe Nelson is CLOSED due to the storms, we will be re-opening once the rebuild has taken place.

Open from 10am week days & from 9.30am weekends

Reservation requests are not confirmed until you have received a confirmation response from the restaurant. Tables are allocated on a first in first served basis and if your preferred booking time is unavailable, please contact us direct and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

For group bookings of 8 or more people we may need to offer a limited choice or set menu. This allows us to keep the quality of your food to a high standard without slowing down the service for your group. Please contact us direct on 03 546 9783 or

We also offer our ‘Trust the Chef’ menu which is the quintessential Boat Shed eating experience where the Boat Shed kitchen team compiles a selection of complementary dishes from the days à la carte menu, designed to share amongst the table.
