We went as a large group midweek which the restaurant staff coped well with. The ambience is good, the food was very good, well priced and with adequate portion servings, not too much but not too little either. I had oysters followed by lamb with spiced pumpkin and it was excellent. My wife had confit of chicken and it was... More

I took my wife here for a birthday dinner. We chose the degustation menu and it was superb with everything you vould want from sweet tangy salty soft crunchy and smooth! The chefs here love what they do and it shows through every plate served! The wait staff are rediculously friendly and made the evening unawkward and a great laugh!... More

I've lived in Townsville for more than 20 years and Michel's is the one restaurant that delivers fantastic food and service every single time. My wife and I had dinner there last night, just the two of us (kid free evening!). We both had three courses, each as delicious as the last. Very helpful, friendly and professional service.

My husband and I choose this restaurant for a nice meal together. On a Tuesday night (end of December), it was less than half full. It took over an hour and a half to get our mains, after asking about them a couple of times, by the time it came we felt it wasn't worth the wait. My husband ordered... More

Had our NYE meal at Michels which was really nice. Although we did wait awhile for our food and drinks, it was understandably a busy night. It is a little on the expensive side but a nice place for a special occasion!

Absolutely beautifully cooked meals, have had many meals here and it never disappoints. The service is second to none. The flavors are always amazing. Don't overlook this restaurant. Good size servings for the men also.

I've chosen the Degustation menu, while my friend had the Rib eye meal. The Degustation menu was created with the most care and the flavours danced on your palette with each of the 7 courses. It was difficult to finish the last course even after I walked around the block; so a doggy bag was happily supplied for the chocolate... More

I looked at the menu when travelling with my gourmet friend and I was unsure of what I would even chose (not my sort if menu). I was blown away by every course. It was a true taste sensation. Ella the manager was incredible! When I misunderstood the menu, she brought me the one I thought I was ordering as... More
