Absolutely one of the most delicious experiences I've had world wide! Neilson's is inviting, cosy and modern. The central fire place is delightfully warming in winter, and breaks up the dining areas to feel quite intimate. The food is incredible. We visited twice in two days an everything we ordered was beautifully presented and blissful to our tastebuds! GF /... More

I believe this restaurant closed for refurbishment 14th or 15th May 2016. Seemed to be very popular with locals so assume it deserved it's good reputation and popularity.

Neilsons is the premier restaurant in Traralgon and deserves its reputation. I've had several meals there over my years living here and have come away from each one with inspiration, a full belly and a smile on my face. Their cauliflower soup with curry oil was a highlight a few years ago and I've been trying to replicate it at... More

It's been 4 years since I have been back here but unbelievably Lewis and Bec have actually improved the place. The food continues to be extraordinary and consistent but now even the most negative of critics would say the portions are very generous. 3 people dining. 4 entrees, 3 mains, 2 desserts. Not a criticism for any and you would... More

Had a dinner invitation with some clients in this part of world. They were very happy we were going here and there was a lot of excitement over the menu options. So I shared the Oysters Kilpatrick with another guest. Well done to Neilsons, these were prepared very well. They were very fresh, tasty and the bacon cooked perfectly. Had... More

We were taken out to lunch today as a birthday gift to us both. It's the first time I've been to Neilsons and I really enjoyed it. We had planned to have the 3 course lunch inc a drink for $40 but none of the desserts on offer appealed to any of us, so we had the two course deal... More

Neilson's has a welcoming entrance...as this is an old home, it is quite intimate. We were seated promptly and the service was brilliant all night. We had three different waitresses tonight and all of them were professional. There was a young lady who was more prevalent than the other two and she was a complete delight. So...first impressions are warm... More

It had been a couple of years since our last visit but we should have returned earlier. The meal would have to be the best we have experienced in the area for years. Others in the area I have rated as being very good to excellent but nothing compared to the meal here. The service was very good to. The... More

dinner at neilsons's 2 weeks ago. Service was slow initially [new staff] but was very good once things got going. Staff were friendly. Food was superb and, for once, plenty of it. Portion size was very generous and very reasonably priced [$19 for entree and $30 ave for mains. Wine list is good and again well priced. Will return in... More
