We went for breakfast. The view is unbeatable and the service was personable and friendly. Coffee was excellent however the food was so so. That said it was no more expensive than an average Sydney cafe so given the amazing location, the average food was forgivable!

Food was lovely, fresh, tasty and well presented. We particularly liked the squid entree, rocket salad and lemon, raspberry dessert. The staff were great, the service was genuinely warm and welcoming, we have a young baby and felt very welcome, well looked after and not at all rushed. Location is beautiful too.
Thank you for your review Debbie! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed and will certainly pass your comments on to the staff who will be thrilled!

It is situated at a pleasant location. Parking can be an issue, esp. summer time. Drinks are a bit on a higher side. Although food menu is not extensive, it does have good quality food. Service was prompt and attentive.

About The Nielsen

Sophisticated Modern Australian dishes with beachside views. Whether you need to impress guests from out of town or you’re keen on spending a lazy afternoon by the water, The Nielsen in picturesque Vaucluse is the ideal spot to unwind. The cafe is quaint but open and airy, serving surprisingly sophisticated dishes in a casual atmosphere. The menu here focuses on great produce with a slight Italian twist. Seafood is the real winner here - the grilled split king prawns with salmoriglio and anchovy crumbs is a favourite and the catch of the day with lime, olives, capers and tomatoes proves the old adage correct - it’s sometimes the simplest things in life that are the best. Come for the views but stay for the food - The Nielsen will become your favourite waterside spot in no time. The Nielsen is fully licensed & BYO.
