The food was amazing, the service was even better, the staff are very professional and very welcoming. The establishment is clean and tidy with modern decor, altogether a quality dining experience, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Food has gone from great, to below average. Used to be our favourite local, but after our last couple of experiences, we wont be back in a hurry, They have changed a lot in the menu's and not for the better, apparently Polenta chips are...not able to be made because of Covid (seriously I can make them at home easily enough). People go because they like the menu, change it and it changes your customer base. Also apparently deserts are also not available, also because of Covid. Service was good, food below averageMore

Rocked up at 6.30pm on Wednesday night, only another party seated, asked for a table for 4. We were asked if we had a booking... ummmmm no but not like that is an issue when the place is dead. We ordered bread to start which...was okay but the 3 spreads were lacklustre and there wasn't enough for the mountains of bread. Our meals were okay. Pasta, ribs and a couple of chicken burgers. Not much to write home about. The service was good and we were asked if we needed more drinks (I hate when servers don't ask) so that was good. We didn't stick around for desert. Would recommend if you just want something plain.More

Just been to Nellies in Mosgiel. Not impressed at all. The manager said that noise was unacceptable even if you were having a prize giving. Some of the staff were rude and told a patron to “ be quite” and he wasn’t saying anything but...eating. I would not recommend this pub/restaurant to anyone.More

We walked from our motel to Nellie's. The menu was a great selection. Portion size was on point. Meals beautifully presents, cooked and tasted amazing. We all left feeling full bit not over done. I thought it was well priced and value for money. Service...was fantastic. Really recommend this place.More

We had a family birthday dinner here with 6 adults and 3 kids. When we arrived the table was already set with kids colouring in stuff. Meals were fantastic, great food selection and great prices. The staff were very attentive and great with kids, bringing...out the kids meals first. Will definitely be back.More

We enjoyed a delicious meal here. Steak was cooked perfectly. Ribs were amazing, super tasty and the meat fell off the bones. Friendly service, pleasant surroundings and cheap cocktails. Glad we came, would recommend and return.

Fillet steak very small portion. Very tasty but still overpriced. Took garlic/onion food allergy seriously but could not offer any reasonable alternative - panfried fish on vegetables, not even fries, eggs or a salad could be made as an alternative. Very disappointing compared to many...other restaurants who go out of their way to ensure customer satisfaction. Offered no compensation for this disappointment. Great wine & dessert, atmosphere quite a nice feel.More
