What a cute boutique restaurant, Adele is very attentive and takes time to explain the menu and special dishes they have on offer. The food is breathtaking and worth every cent. If your looking for a quirky little restaurant look no further Wayne and Adels garden of Eating is amazing my husband and I enjoyed our evening out.

Went on a dinner date to Garden of Eating. I was a little nervous that I was going to struggle to find something on the menu because i'm fussy but it wasn't an issue at all. We sat in the cute garden courtyard & bought our own wine. It was a lovely outdoor setting for a date. The food was... More

A wonderful experience! all the food was of the best quality and variety; everyone in our party loved the interesting way the Menu is formatted and the dishes named! The surroundings in the outside courtyard area were lovely - we were lucky that is wasn't too hot; service was great! our group had time to chat between ordering and receiving... More

Wayne & Adeles change their menu every season and as we hadn't been for a while we were expecting something different, and we were not disappointed. Camel & Crocodile were the main eye openers, snails were also on the menu. Our table of four tried all the different mains and we all gave the thumbs up. The deserts were also... More

Went for a business dinner a few days ago, the earthy set up in the backyard garden was inviting and relaxing, menu was developed with a touch of sense of humour and the flavours were absolutely exquisite and delicious. Townsville keeps surprising me. Definitely recommend.

felt uncomfortable and unwelcome from the moment we arrived. Abrupt and unfriendly attitude from owners. Meal satisfactory. our entire group overheard the owner complaining and apologising to other customers about our group- other guests who had previously atteneded this establishment advised they had been a part of other groups who were rowdier and louder with no issues, I can't help...

Yes we do remember this group who booked for 6pm arrival for an early start (our usual opening time is 6.30pm). Had ovens on early but then found out that evening invites were for 6.20pm. They hadn't booked out the courtyard to themselves, so there were other customers there as well. Unknown to us, a photographer turned up and at... More

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... 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
