What Our Client’s Say
NZ King Salmon recently hosted its annual Ōra King Awards hosting 85 international top chefs and guests from around the globe. We held a farewell event at The Boathouse and engaged Beachside Conference and Events Centre to do the catering for us.
Excellent service, food, and presentation. Throughout the planning, Lincoln was a pleasure to deal with – offering advice and suggestions to enhance our guests’ dining experience. Lincoln created a menu which was perfect for the occasion and he ensured there was an abundance of food!
Beachside Conference and Events exceeded our expectations and deserve special mention for their expertise and professionalism.
A memorable, Kiwi-style dining experience in Nelson.

I heard through a friend that she had recently held a catered function at her home and Gourmet Catering @ Beachside Nelson was the company she chose to cater for her. My wife had her 60th birthday coming up and I wanted to have something special at home with our closest friends.
We had Corrina and Fran come and they laid out the most amazing spread for us. I had to do nothing… Which was such a bonus. Each course (three courses incl. canapes) was explained to our group and the food was incredible. Fran ensured we were well-hydrated and our glasses were always topped up. Attention to detail second to none. Our friends went home happy and replete and I scored some major brownie points with my wife. These guys know how to look after you and provide you with a service and memory you will never forget. Would I use them again? Absolutely and most assuredly.
Thanks, Team. You rock!!

Thank you all so much for your hospitality, the incredible food, and you all being so helpful and approachable to deal with. We have heard nothing but great feedback from our team on the events, some calling it the best they have ever been to. It wouldn’t have been possible without you all, so thank you so much.
I am sure we will work together again in the future. We will highly recommend you to anyone and everyone!
