we are residents of Townsville and dine several times a year at Touch of Salt. We would certainly put it in the top bracket of restaurants if not the best in Townsville. Menu is well thought out and not over the top with price. Wine is expensive and several times my first choice has not been available. Atmosphere is great... More

We had our wedding reception here in 2012 and now go back for every anniversary, birthday, any special date and it does not disappoint. The service is amazing and can never be faulted. Love this place so much.

We ate here just before Christmas. The place was buzzing. Good selection on the menu although one of the mains didnt turn out quite as expected. Lovely deserts. Overall, a very pleasant evening and we will be going back.

We had our small wedding here and have dined her a few times. The food is always great and the service is fantastic. One of my favourite places to dine out in Townsville.

Recently attended a wedding here, fabulous food and venue with staff doing their utmost to ensure the guests were having a good time. Not normally a fan of alternate drop menus but everyone seemed to be very happy with the menu!

The interior of the restaurant is nice and it has a big outdoor area which gives you a nice view over the river. Apart from that and our entrees, everything else was lacklustre. The service was not cold but not friendly and was very slow. We had to wave a waitress down for drinks twice. We also weren't impressed that... More

I was recently treated to a degustation for my 70th birthday - 6 courses (plus a surprise sorbet) with complementary wines chosen by Peter, owner and our host for the evening. Every appetising course, specially selected from their standard menu was beautifully prepared and immaculately presented along with Peter's explanations of what we were eating and drinking. What made the... More

I came here for dinner after my graduation ceremony in December 2014. The size of my party was originally 5, which we asked to be changed to 8. Many thanks to Mark and his staff for accommodating this last minute change and giving us an excellent table outside to celebrate. Everyone in the party really enjoyed their food and drinks!...

We wished to entertain some discerning visitors to Townsville and selected this restaurant based on its reputation and awards. The venue was found to be crowded on our arrival but service was instant and remained so during the whole meal period. Entrees and mains were highly rated by all five attendees.Beer and wine lists were fairly comprehensive and per glass... More
