About The Vault on Nelson

There aren’t many buildings in Australia that can trace their heritage back to 1876, but if you take the trip to Nelson Place in Williamstown, you can find one such establishment. Once the Bank of Australasia, it now houses The Vault on Nelson, and while they are rightly proud of the legacy of their location, they could never be accused of dwelling in the past. This restaurant specialises in Asian fusion and modern Australian cuisine with a menu that is rooted in tradition but always forward thinking in approach. The focus of the food is on local and seasonal ingredients, and the restaurant itself is modelled on the dining halls of Asia for splendid shared-eating. Reserve a spot online today.

The Vault on Nelson was absolutely superb. I could not recommend it enough. My fiancé and I booked a high tea for two and they treated us excellently. We were placed in a romantic private room with the high tea already set up. The service was incredibly attentive, the food was delicious. We don't drink alcohol so they switched out our sparkling wine for lemon lime and bitters instead. We also had the lemongrass ginger tea which I recommend if you're having high tea - it goes really well with the sandwiches. Overall, it was a beautiful atmosphere and the experience really made our day. We will definitely come back again for another high tea or dinner.

We really enjoyed the lovely meal at Alexanders. The service was great and the staff were very attentive. It was not a busy evening but it is very central location and managed to park very close to the restaurant. Will certainly be back again soon.

it was lovely of Will to contact me via sms to confirm the booking. I didn't know I requested for sits in the courtyard which was a bad idea for winter. Will changed our reserve table next to the fireplace. it's cosy and warm. I tried all three cocktails, loved the Espresso Martini. I had Black Mussel for entrée, Eye Fillet for main, & Stickydate Pudding for dessert.... yummm...

Great food & very tentative service. Tables & chairs were a bit dirty as was my beer glass. We were also overcharged for our dessert which was on special at $10 but we were charged the normal $19 price. But overall a great experience and would go back.

Food was good, service was better than the previous times I've been there but there is still room for improvement to make it excellent. They honoured our Entertainment Book vouchers even though the name had changed which was greatly appreciated. An enjoyable experience

Our group had limited time in Williamstown. The restaurant was able to meet our request to have our meals ready when we arrived. We had a short wait for our meals and overall we were satisfied with the quality of the food.

They forgot our order and when did arrive the meal was luke warm and the rice side was inedible and had to be replaced. Saw another 3 tables where food was returned, entree arrived after the main was served, another didnt receive a meal. Overall would not recommend the restaurant
