While I understand that it was a busy Saturday night the lack of attention to details was very apparent. Our wine order was taken we waited while we ordered our food only to be told it was not available and we gave our second choice which after a considerable time we asked where it was. By this stage our entrees... More

Having to eat somewhere in Townsville I strolled down palmer street and found michels. Reading the reviews for this restaurant I was slightly concerned but also realise most reviews are biased against food and service due to lack of understanding them. I was greeted quickly and even though it was busy and I was eating solo they found a nice... More

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
