My favourite restaurant in townsville

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... read more

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

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

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

Don't go here if you just want upmarket pub food or you're a fussy eater. The food is really something different and you need to be prepared to give different selections a try. Our group of five shared four entrees with the snails and battered oysters topping the list. The yuzi pearls were a burst of flavour, a real taste... More

Nice vegan food, I really enjoyed my meal. I only forgot to tell them I was a vegan when I booked, but that wasn't a problem, it's best if you tell him in advance for more vegan options.
