This was one of the most exciting lunches I have had for a long time. The menu was set up so most courses could be served as entrees or mains; our group of four decided to order three entrees each and so cover a wider selection of what was on offer - 2 of our group were regulars and knew... read more

Without doubt Townsville's best restaurant, with the best food and service! My wife and I have eaten at lots of "Hat" restaurants in Asia, Europe and the UK, and we think Wayne and Adele's is "up there with the best" The menue has something for everybody and the food is unbelievable, without doubt the best in Townsville!!!

What the menu called butterflied, grilled fish was not what landed on my plate. Instead I was presented with some smelly pieces of fish, neither grilled nor butterflied, which reeked of tinned food. The quality of side dish was not much better. It had "supermarket ready-made" written all over. I have been at the restaurant before and liked the food... More

We have never responded to any reviews on trip advisor before but would like to make a mention that you are actually referring to the Sardines on our current menu. You described this dish as fish, not once mentioning it was Sardines. These are in no way tinned and come in a package, de-tailed and butterflied from the North Atlantic.... More

This is a hard one to describe. The venue seemed like you were sitting in someone's back-yard having dinner. It's BYO and the garden is nice. I would give the food a mixed review - my entree was good, main not so much. It definitely has a different home-cooked feel about it. I'm sure there's much better restaurants in Townsville... More

This restaurant has proved time and time again why it has been operating for decades in Townsville with consistent flair and an inventive menu. Service can be a little slow because there's only the one waitress waiting on the 6+ tables, but that can be forgiven for the exceptional a la carte meals which leave us in silence every time...

We went here for a birthday lunch. We were all raving about the food. The service was great. It is more of a boutique restaurant with very relaxed outdoor setting in the garden. I really loved it.

Amazing food options with well paired flavour combinations. I did numerous entree sized dishes so I could keep experiencing more and more

Went there for a birthday dinner. The food was below average and over priced. The service was terrible. The only thing I couldn't fault was the ambiance.

I had one of THOSE birthdays with a zero on the end and was looking for a private, informal, cocktail style venue with great food for about 40 family and friends to mingle, laugh and enjoy. Wayne and Adele's was perfect. We worked on the menu to the extent that we had to consider some food allergies and preferences but,... More
