NEST Bistro is a cafe, bar and restaurant in the heart of Walkerville on Walkerville Terrace. Since opening in its prominent and beautiful location, NEST Bistro has become one of the go-to casual breakfast, lunch and dinner spots for locals and visitors alike.

The modern and bright interior features high ceilings, homely corners and a range of seating options. A bright outdoor area offers space for functions overlooking the beautiful little park across the road.

The waiting staff offer efficient table service and help lift the vibe to something more akin to a nice restaurant, albeit in a cafe setting.

The menu is a wide-ranging affair and features Indian and modern Australian options along with some Italian inspired dishes to round it out. You'll find something for everyone among all the choices. Vegetarians are catered for too!

On this visit, we ordered the wild mushroom and spinach ricotta croquettes as an entree. Three crispy croquettes containing soft cheesy goodness inside (with a hint of truffle-y flavour) are a great way to start the meal.

The kids menu has a selection of the classics in smaller serves and the kids bolognese was meaty and filling for our little one. The chicken parmigiana was what you would expect from a parmigiana but the dressing on the salad was over-the-top salty. That isn't too disappointing in itself, but it is something to watch out for. The Atlantic salmon served with sauteed leek and pink peppercorn sauce with crispy risotto is well presented and offers an interesting and satisfying range of textures.

The rest of the menu features Mediterranean share platters, salads, burgers, pizzas (also available with a gluten-free base), pasta dishes, a couple of curries, and side dishes to suit, like salads, veggies, and salt and pepper fries. Also on the mains menu are steaks, paella, barramundi, clay pot curries, and market fish of the day. We ran out of time for dessert on this visit but NEST has plenty of dessert specials along with a cabinet of sweet treats to satisfy.

NEST has an excellent range of coffees, teas and drinks. Any bar that serves Rockfords Alicante Bouchet by the glass is already a winner in our books.

For lunch, NEST has a range of focaccia and piadina which are perfect for a tasty quick bite. For breakfast, there's a wide range of treats and eats on offer.

Walkerville is well served by this modern and relaxing restaurant and cafe. Why not drop by for a taste of modern Australia?

Crispy risotto sounds very interesting. It makes a good contrast to the other textures on the plate as well.
