“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” — Virginia Woolf
Wandering along the Inner Harbour on the David Foster walkway with a good friend, our stomachs let us know it was lunchtime. We came up onto Wharf Street and the flowers on the restaurant’s patio attracted us to Nautical Nellie’s.
The window signage made us agree that we’d find something on the menu that we like, so we found seats on the patio.
While awaiting our food, we checked out the wine menu for future reference. http://nauticalnelliesrestaurant.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Wine-List-2017.pdf
We were impressed by the organized listing of quality wines and earmarked this as a dinner destination.
My friend had the Cajun fish tacos with black bean salsa and a side of coleslaw and a house garden salad.
He loved it!
I chose the lobster & shrimp quesadillas with sour cream and a wild jalapeno chutney dip, and a garden salad. We agreed that the garden vegetable salad was nicely complemented with the passion fruit dressing.
Every last morsel disappeared! That’s a testament to the flavourful food — and perhaps a bit to our appetites!
As we left Nautical Nellie’s to resume our Inner Harbour walk, we noted the “Heated Sundeck” sign, so we also know this will be a perfect spot even in winter!
A perfect walk & lunch/dinner year-round!
