    One of Nelsons beautiful hidden gems. The gallery has been recently renovated with stunning modern layout. The gallery is well curated with thoughtful pieces and the theatre is wonderfully intimate for live performances. Make sure you visit the cafe which overlookes the duck pond at the Queen's garden. 10/10 love this place!

    Changes exhibitions every now and then, during Saturdays it's free. While redoing the Suter they moved next to the library where it was nice and open for anyone to come through, I used to take art lessons there, and the paintings were quite unique and sometimes I wondered how it really was art.

    Suited to fine taste? The Suter cafe serves exquisite food down to a fine art! This place is perfectly situated, with views overlooking The Queens Gardens and pond; enjoy indoor or outdoor seating. Bubbly Staff will make you feel at home. lt is also a child friendly cafe with a high chair and toys. Take the kids to feed the ducks after lunch. They'll love it!

    Terrible, very loud, had to practically shout to be heard. Lady behind counter wearing pearls and directing staff , very rude and chewing gum ? constantly. Very bad form and should not be tolerated by management. Won't waste my time coming here again.

    Very nicely done. The place had just reopened following renovations. Looks great. A good collection of art. A nice looking cafe although was very crowded.
