Location and contact

When visiting Nelson's Dockyard don't miss Pillars Restaurant with its spectacular, outdoor waterfront terrace set amidst Nelson's iconic 18th century pillars and lush gardens. The stunning setting, overlooking the historic harbour, is the perfect spot to enjoy a delicious breakfast, a casual lunch in the cool breeze or at night, as the ambiance transforms to candlelit fine dining, to watch an unforgettable moonrise over Shirley Heights. Cocktails are served on comfortable outdoor sofas throughout the day and evening.

The setting is gorgeous and the staff are attentive and friendly. The food was delicious, my only criticism is that the pricing is slightly unreasonable.

Nelson’s Inn is a place steeped in history without being in any way kitch. Our table overlooked the little landing stage so there was lots to keep us entertained. Excellent crispy calamari, a perfect club sandwich, fine prawn fish cakes and two good puddings. After...More
