Located in Palmer Street with a number of other eateries we chose this one and it was a great surprise. Food was really lovely and in a nice environment. Staff were friendly and professional and very helpful. Chattty but knew when enough was enough. A little pricey but they need to get the produce to the top end so you... More

The prices were outrageous. I mean $40 for a small chicken leg. It was nice, sure, but come on. I am always bemused by provincial restaurants that believe charging like a wounded bull is mark of quality. They are dreaming.... Good fare, but gosh!

A truly great fine dining experience I have not seen since in town since Meltons. For me, A night at Michels was an experience about respect.... A VERY difficult thing to find in Townsville restaurants... Firstly, Respect is ALWAYS a 2 way street and they get that here. If you come to Michels with respect on your mind and you... 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.

Having dinned in lots of Townsville restaurants we decided we'd give Michels ago. We hadn't booked & when we arrived we were told there were no tables available inside, although there were lots of empty tables inside, was this just to make the restaurant look fill from the road or because we were casually dressed? 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
