Food arrived cold salmon raw in the middle. Prawns arrived cold all dishes supposed to be served hot. Bill arrived hot and over priced. Will not be back or recommend to anyone.

We have a wonderful night at Michels as ever the food was beautiful, the service was excellent. The wines and food balanced well and it was a wonderful experience. The lamb was the highlight.

We went for a special occasion and were not disappointed. Our service was great and the food was excellent. The lamb rump was cooked beautifully and the boullabise was a seafood delight!

I had a bad experience at Michels. We had been recommended this restaurant by a few people, so thought it an appropriate dinner venue for a birthday. I'll start with the good - service was not bad, most of the food was pretty good. Had some lamb that was actually quite excellent. Michel himself came to our table to talk... More

Every time we go back we can not fault it. The food is spectacular and we never leave feeling hungry. The wine, the staff and the whole evening is ALWAYS 100%. We will continue to return over and over. The only bad thing is trying to pick what to have.

I always hope that Michels will be more of an exciting dining experience than it ends up being. The food is quite tasty and the ambiance is nice with good service, but the menu tends to run along the classic Ozzy lamb, steak and one fish lines of all the other restaurants in town. Recommended, but could use a bit... More

Until recently would have rated this restaurant among the top in Townsville. However a recent visit left us extremely disappointed. Not only was the service slow and unattentive, but the food was overpriced, over cooked and quite honestly, little more than well dressed pub food. This restaurant, which was once one of the finer restaurants in Townsville, is evidently struggling... More

My wife and I ate here for dinner and the food and service were great! I had the lambs brains starter - delicious - followed by the bouillabaisse - really excellent. The restaurant is pleasantly located, and on a warm evening it was a relaxing and truly pleasant place to be.

We booked late in the day so were only able to have an outside table and fortunately for us it was a pleasant night and we were away from the pedestrian traffic on the pavement, so we didn't have to worry about smokers walking by, contaminating our food! Great service and beautiful food. We could not fit any dessert in... More
