So recently i had the pleasure of dinner at Michele's restaurant this was for a family birthday. I was very happy with menu choice and even more happy with the cost of the menu as well.It fitted into... More

There was nothing wrong with the food, it just wasn't worth the price. I had Chermoula calamari, pressed watermelon, shaved fennel, feta salad, yoghurt dressing entree @$24 - sounds great doesn't it, but tasted only ok, nothing special. Main I chose Eggplant cannelloni, cashew nut cheese, mushroom, sundried tomato, basil sauce @$37 - now this was very good, but a... More

Locals will tell you that this is a top restaurant, but after eating there once I will not return. It is expensive, and very limited gluten free choices. I ordered chicken with a risotto, and was not itemised onthe menu as GF, but was the best choice on offer. Risotto was very ordinary. chicken dry. Wines are expensive.

The service was good, but... More

We called in to Michels for dessert after dining elsewhere on Palmer street. The staff were super professional and attentive. Our entire experience from service to food and drinks was superb. Definitely go here if you get a chance.

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.
