About the restaurant

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.
