About The Apple Shed Kitchen & Bar
Welcome to The Apple Shed Kitchen & Bar. We are a scenic 35 minute drive from Nelson, located over the water on Mapua Wharf, with unrivalled views across the Waimea Inlet.
The Apple Shed offers a simple and seasonally driven menu, complimented by a carefully selected range of wine, beer, cider.
Once an original fruit storage shed, the restaurant is a natural, inviting space, framed by large bi-fold windows and doors making the most of it's picturesque waterfront location.
The Apple Shed is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, lunch with family and friends or an intimate dinner.
Always a pleasure to eat here - we love the view and atmosphere of Mapua. New owners have been operating for about 12 months are doing an excellent job. We visit regularly - often taking visitors, food and service consistently good! Sue & Simon in Richmond
Mushroom soup delicious and served hot which is important. Good wine selection offered. We had a very enjoyable dining experience, Thankyou. We will comeback.
Food was excellent an all round great restaurant.
Very impressed, the pan fried snapper surpassed anything we have previously experienced, very quick service for a busy Mother's Day , as a local we will definitely be back Thank you
Beautiful food and great service. We were out celebrating Mothers Day with our children and could not fault our night out. Thank you!!
We always love going to the Apple Shed. We have a 17 month old who loves the colouring pencils and colouring in pictures, which keep him entertained. Lovely food, fab service always. Will keep going back!
The only thing that would make it a better choice for me when thinking what restaurant we might go to is if you accepted American Express cards for payment.
Our waitress was really lovely and great at her job. (Had just moved up here) Food was great
We had a fabulous evening meal here. The steak was the best ever!
Great food great service
First time in a long time..... definitely happy we booked to come here. Service was exceptional... friendly, knowledgeable and non-invasive staff. Coffee and drinks arrived swiftly, as did meals after ordering. Beautiful food. A little noisy today however, probably due to long weekend and being so busy. All in all, a great experience... definitely be back soon!
Hi Team, Just confirming our clients loved their lunch today, including the 3 1/2 dozen oysters, the mussels, the Cacpaccio and the fish croquettes, they really loved the lot! They felt yours was the best restaurant visit in NZ (10 days so far) Thanks a lot, Zane - Wine, Art & Wilderness
I requested an inside table with a nice view over the estuary and it was superb! We all enjoyed our time with that view.Thank you Our mains were excellent and our sweets.were delicious. My glass of bubbles was cooled but not too cold, perfect BUT it came as a half portion like I would expect a still to arrive and I am sure on our last visit, when I enjoyed 2 glasses this was not the case. You are a top team. Keep up the good work thanks.We will return for sure.
Absolutely great dining experience, the view, the food and the staff all made for a perfect evening! Thankyou so much Keiran and Gemma
As a fellow restauranteur, I could not fault the experience. Staff were attentive, food and beverage was excellent, and the ambiance very pleasant and comfortable. Good job, all round..
We have dined here a number of times over the past the past few months and the standard of food and service has remained consistently high.
Only reason service rating is lower is that insufficient waitpersons put a strain on the others. Our overworked waitress was charming and helpful, but didn’t have time to check on us or answer questions —. not her fault.
Wonderful food great atmosphere would definitely recommend
Could not fault in any way.
great evening thank you
Another superb meal and evening
Lovely lunch - fab food from a wonderful selection & great service. Tiniest of comments but think wine list could be extended just a little.
Thanks everyone loved their meals and had a great lunch experience
All 6 of us agreed the evening was outstanding in every way. Couldn’t be faulted.
