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!

Great spot. Would recommend for the Lunch deal of $39 for main, side and wine however it is overpriced if eating al la carte. The kitchen skill set doesn't justify that price. Food was all very nice though, just for someone who eats out a lot you can get better quality for full price.

This was a really lovely experience at Neilson, with excellent service, friendly welcoming atmosphere and super fresh food, intelligently prepared and presented. It’s in a stunning location and just perfect for a casual lunch with good friends.

Gorgeous views. Delicious gnocchi and the coconut mousse was decadent. Incredible customer service, such friendly and helpful staff...and, my waiter was especially cute.

Food was plain terrible ! The steak looked like it was out of a packet at coles !! 2 pieces of fish were nice but drowned in chips ! The dessert , well we had to send it back ..... over all a terrible experience that our daughter had bought us a lovely present by giving us a gift voucher, that resulted in a terrible experience. So very disappointed 😔

Perfect location for a lunch, dinner for romantics. Fantastic service, flavoursome food and generous proportions. Highly recommend walkers, beach goers and romantics.

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.
