A Jewel Amongst the Brown Coal

I was invited to dinner at Neilsons by a colleague who had done more research than me about this small South Gippsland town's best restaurant. Except for one factor, it was a superb night. The restaurant is in a renovated home from the early days, and has a lovely, intimate feel to it. The menu is... read more

This was our third visit and it was of the same very high standard as the first. Presentation was spot on, the service was excellent. This restaurant is perfect for a celebration or an intimate dinner. Congratulations to the owners who have been able to maintain a very high standard over a considerable period of time. We look forward to... More

I have been dining at Neilson's Restaurant for many years now, and if you haven't bothered to give it a try, you do not know what you are missing. A lot of people think that its too expensive or too intimidating, but the honest truth is, the cost is not much more than a pub meal (main size) and the... More

Wow. We were lucky enough to chance a seat without a booking and we absolutely loved it. We had the tasting menu and thoroughly enjoyed the treatment of the local produce. The price and service were all fair for the quality of the food and we will definitely be back when we can.

I love this restaurant. The menu can be a little overwhelming if you aren't used to fine dining, but I've never had a meal that I didn't absolutely love. This is one of those places that you don't need to stick with a safe option, anything you choose will be amazing!

I was there with a friend for dinner on a Saturday night. We had read the reviews and they were all great. I have to say that this place did not disappoint. From the minute we stepped in we were made to feel welcome. The venue is small and cosy but does not feel cramped. We ordered the degustation menu,... More
