Thursday night catch up

Was prompted to head back to Table 51 due to the Entertainment Book Boucher initially. I have been a few times and have always left satisfied and tonight was no exception. We started the night with Duck Spring rolls and Sundried tomato gnocchi entrees which were generously sized and a great... read more

In town for business. While the service is a little slow as the cook, the owner, the help is the same person. Service was great and the food awesome. Nice coffee as well.

Great service. My colleagues all enjoyed their meals. My Morrocan lamb was tough. Told the wait staff. No remedy offered which is disappointing.

Table 51 was an absolute surpise and pleasure. Really enjoyed stopping by here for breakfast each morning, and is open from about 7am. Great food, friendly service. Even the basic dishes like toast, had plenty of TLC that kept me coming back. I only sampled the breakfast, and did not visit for dinner over a week-long stay, but I'm sure... More

Definitely recommend this wonderful little gem for a delicious breakfast. From the outset we were welcomed warmly and were looked after very well throughout our meal. Absolutely delicious pancakes and great coffee too. The kids were made to feel very welcome. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful mojitos $10 with fresh mint, citrus burst. Menu was old fashioned but enjoyed the seafood pasta and veal scallopine. Friendly service.

Only had starter & entree. Glad we stopped there. Morteon bay bug salad, crumbed crocodile, & natural oysters & king prawns. All had same cabbage garnish, no salad. Bugs tasted like coconut only. Crocodile didn't really taste of anything & was tough. Oysters were ok, but prawns tasted like they were marinated & were peeled. Wouldn't recommend this place to... More

After raving reviews from friends, we decided to try Table 51 to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival, we were greeted at the door and seated straight away with cold water and menus at the table within a minute. We order two drinks, and they arrive almost immediately. For entree, we order the Crumbed Crocodile - the sauce it came with... More

We stayed at the Allure serviced appartments in Palmer street & were recommended Table 51 by the receptionist. A short walk along the marina to Table 51 to be greeted by "mine Host" Denis, what a character! What he can't tell about Townsville isn't worthwhile knowing.While we were there Johny Lewis, the boxing trainer of many Australian boxing champions walked... More

Excellent food! From pasta, local fish to fillet mignon... Everything was cooked to perfection! The scrumptious atmosphere made our dinner to a special night!
