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

Was so looking forward to eating here. Service was great but not much use without great food. Being charged for an indelible entree is a first. Very overpriced for food I could cook better at home. Epic fail.

Michels established Palmer street as the restaurant precinct of Townsville. It is still regarded as one of the top restaurants in Townsville, and is well suited for business lunches and intimate dinners. Great steaks and always good service.

Having a birthday dinner out and on arrival informed us the aircon had broken down. We weren't concerned so sat outside as it was after 6pm and cooling down anyway. A complimentary cocktail arrived soon after. This might have upset some other diners who appreciate aircon in the tropics. The service was great; prompt and friendly, and our food delicious... More

We used to love Michel's, but recently, not so much. Thai Oysters dry and bland, Lemon Calamari dry, tough, bland and over-powered by chorizo sausage. Dining partner said his Coffin Bay Oysters were soft (perhaps they'd been frozen?) and steak, although well-cooked, and accompanied by a pleasant jus, was tough.

Had a pre-christmas lunch at Michaels and as always it was great. Good food, good service and fine wine with a bill which was appropriate the experience.

Confirmed what I have been told, 5 star+ service, 5 star atmosphere, 5 star presentation of meal, 5 star meal recipes. (Just someone shoot the chef) What a shame, everything almost perfect except my duck was dry & overcooked & my wifes pork was also dry & overcooked. It seems the last chef left his good recipes & presentation talents... More
