As its name suggests, this Italian carnivore’s paradise is all about the meat. The sirloin, rib-eye and rump are cooked to perfection, every time.

Though unassuming from the outside, Nelson’s Eye is real deal and old-school. That’s because they’ve been cooking some of the best cuts of meat since the 60's.

Why go?

Over the years very little has changed, and given the homely atmosphere, good service and superb selection of cuts, it’s no wonder that it’s still going strong well over 50 years.
