Nestled within the Domain Road enclave in South Yarra with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens sits Gilson.

Gilson’s intimate dining room is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week and caters for large groups and exclusive events.

Gilson offers an ever evolving all day menu focusing on Italian cuisine and seasonal flavours.

A neighbourhood favourite due to its relaxed setting, friendly staff, fabulous drinks list and dishes such as the ‘avocado bruschetta’ for breakfast, the ‘Rigatoni, lamb ragu, ricotta salata, gremolata’ for lunch or dinner, and their take on a tiramisu for dessert, a ‘Baba-Misu, mascarpone cream, cocoa’.
Wood fired pizza is also available for lunch and dinner cooked in the custom built oven.
