All Day Breakfast

Real butter, local mushrooms, eggs, chorizo, pork belly, organic tomatoes, hotcakes … sound like your kind of breakfast? We’re serving all day long. That’s right, all day. Sleep as late as you like.

Neilsons Buttermilk Fried Chicken

For a sizzling twist on a childhood favourite, tuck into Neilsons delicious Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Zesty, crunchy and addictive, it’s served with hot sauce and pickles. Get it in Original, Spicy or – for the daring – Hot A.F!

Sweets and Treats

Hankering for something sweet? Let’s start with a classic combination of chocolate, peanuts and salted caramel. Or soft-serve icecream. Or raspberries, meringue? The sexiest of dessert menus. Just for you.

There’s only one hero in the Neilsons Kitchen line-up: fresh Gippsland produce. Our menu brings to the table the best of this region’s offerings, whether of the earth, air, water or land. We are passionate about using quality local produce, even if that means growing it ourselves or foraging in local forests and farmlands to find exactly what we need.

Our dishes balance boisterous, earthy ingredients with flavours subtle and intricate. We look to contemporary food combinations as well as classic flavours to deliver a culinary kick that’s rich, crackling, spicy, dreamy and appeals to all the senses.

Sharing a table at Neilsons Kitchen is more than just grabbing a bite, it’s a dining experience to tuck into like it’s your last meal on Earth.

Best restaurant in Traralgon
“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 home ever since….”

“I finally got to see what all the hype was about and was blown away!!! Quite possibly the best meal I’ve ever eaten!
A great touch with a Happy Birthday surprise for my wife to top off the night.
Thanks Neilsons for a beautiful dining experience. We will see you again soon.”
