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.

Great service and food was plentiful, very well presented and tasty. Terrific location in Williamstown and the option of dining alfresco or inside the beautiful historic building. Worth a visit!
