Had been eating all day, restaurant was closes but was offered their tapas menu, we had to try everything was hard to choose. Really enjoyed the menu, and the great martinis. Will definately go...

Staff here were attentive and friendly which is always a good start. On the two nights we ate here the meals were excellent and were accompanied by very good wine. Service was rapid so there was no sitting around twiddling thumbs. We would have dined there more except for the fact the restaurant is only open Monday to Thursday for... More

We ate breakfast at this location when staying as part of a work trip. The selection of food was good and suited the many and varied tastes of those in our group. The coffee machine however was horrendous - couldn't even finish the cup! It is a push button style that dumps out the milk, coffee etc but it was... More

Stayed at holliday inn Townsville on nye and asked to be booked in to their Shiraz restaurant when we booked. No body at the hotel bothered to tell us it was no longer Shiraz restaurant , rather it is now a very much third class cafe. No French dishes on the menu (except some frozen French fries). There were however... More

I liked the buffet breakfast, which offered variety and quality at a keen price level. My dinner there was well cooked, and served with a smile.

On my recent business visit to Townsville I decided to have dinner at the Shiraz in the Holiday Inn. Even though there was a very good selection of interesting items on the menu, I decided I was in the mood for seafood, and lots of it. Beatrice and Sam, who welcomed me into the restaurant, were most helpful in suggesting... More

The breakfast was great, good value and a huge choice, from continental, American, hot food, cereal and loads of fresh fruit. Worth getting there earlier when the hot meals are still fresh though. I also had the seafood buffet one night, again eat as much as you like. This was a bit of a let down. There were plenty of... More
