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, an intimate dinner or a relaxing weekend brunch.
We had a fantastic meal. I had booked especially for my wife’s birthday and all our requests were met. Friendly and helpful staff and the food was exquisite. I was very impressed and would certainly book again.
Wonderful night out - good food, lovely atmosphere
A favourite place for our family celebrations. Another lovely evening; I think the restaurant ended up being busier than expected and staff were really under the pump. A bit of a delay getting table cleared which Manager acknowledged and apologised for, this was very much appreciated. We'll be back!
Had a lovely meal, beautiful views, excellent service :)
We had a very pleasant Waiter who was knowledgeable but not obtrusive.
Once again a superb meal in beautiful surroundings with excellent wait staff. You will see us frequently through the summer .
Always enjoy our dinner at the Apple Shed. Never, ever a disappointing meal. Every time we have visitors it is our go to restaurant!!
Thanks for a great evening , fantastic meal and appreciated the birthday candle with the dessert . Always love coming to the Appleshed.
We loved it.
Congratulations and thanks to the welcoming staff at The Apple Shed Kitchen & Bar, Mapua for a very special dining experience. The food was exquisite, Service excellent. The setting of the restaurant beautiful. THANK YOU to the staff for a happy, magical night.❤️
A great setting at Mapua wharf. We enjoyed a lovely relaxed evening with friends. We all enjoyed our food and friendly efficient service.
We had the Market fish and risotto followed by apple crumble and all were delicious.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner tonight topped off with a delightful local wine. The food was divine, melt in the mouth. Highly recommended, must visit in Mapua. The situation is so relaxing looking out on the water towards the mountains and all the yachts moored in the estuary. Would be hard to beat. See you there.
Beautiful views, lovely food, fast service. The young waitress took a while to make eye contact and forgot to smile, but perhaps new at the job and nervous. Otherwise, a terrific evening.
Beautiful meal. Very clean. Great service.
Lovely setting.Enjoyed the meal of snapper and chocolate moose so nice.Will be back again thanx.
The Snapper meal was gorgeous. The taste combination fabulous. The dark chocolate mouse with orange puree was devine. All enjoyable with Middle Earth Rose. One of us has the Fish Croquettes which were delicious. The rissotto was delicious.

Delicious food and wonderful staff
Great by the water
I believe it is important that when attending a resturant they treat you well and in a timely manner ensuring your needs are well catered for. Its is gratfying to find a resturant such as The Apple Shed that does this and goes the extra mile to ensure your visit is enjoyable and leaves with a strong desire to return.
After our first visit for dinner we couldn't wait to go back again. On our second visit for dinner the meal was even better. The service from the staff was wonderful. A great view. Our new favorite restaurant.
Everything was perfect :)
