Harbour Light Bistro

Located on Nelsons beautiful waterfront, Harbour Light Bistro & Restaurant was for many years a dairy before becoming a restaurant, many local's remember buying ice cream from the shop. It is one of the more iconic structures on the waterfront and has amazing views over the water, the boulder bank and light house.

Harbour Light Bistro & Restaurant's focus is on quality fresh locally sourced cuisine. Owner and chef, Steve Coyne has created a menu that he describes as “a slightly different angle on traditional cuisine”. 
Nelson has some of the best fish suppliers in the country and at Harbour Light Bistro & Restaurant we take advantage of this fact to supply the best and freshest quality fish on the market. We also have Ora King Salmon and lamb on the menu, for the non meat eaters we have a fantastic vegetarian dish using baked pumpkin gnocchi.
