I scored this restaurant as "average" but it's slightly better. Service was friendly although maybe a little inexperienced. Food range was good and the quality was "ok". Don't expect more. I had Bruschetta for starters and it looked nice but the toast was too hard and dry. The location is a little out of the way for Palmer Street. The... More

On our ways to V8s (we stayed at Eastern end of Palmer St.) we dropped in just as they had opened. Owner came from kitchen to sit us at a table serving us with a smile and we immediately relaxed. You would not find better value for money brekky menu in Townsville on any of the one options. Omelette no.... More

Really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was delicious & the staff were very friendly. Great range of options. The wait was a bit long & the price was a bit high but still a great night. Would recommend for a fine dining experience.

We had dinner here on a Saturday night. While it was a busy night there were a few empty tables and enough staff. We waited for menus, drinks and meals took a long time to come out. Entrees were small for price, mains were large.

Fantastic food! The Moroccan Lamb was delicious and every meal ordered was enjoyed! The only downfall was (which was our fault) that we didn't book a table so had to sit outside in the humidity (yes it's winter and still humid!) Located on the quieter end of Palmer street make sure you check this one out

Came in on a Wednesday night for a quiet dinner. Was greeted at the door and seated quickly. Restaurant was clean and importantly quiet. A few other diners but we were nicely spaced apart. I came in to try the Fillet Steak Rossini that was on the website but wasn't on this menu. Prices were slightly higher too. I should... More

Wife and I couldn't get into a particular restaurant on Palmer Street so choose to try Table 51, well we were certainly impressed. I personally don't care what I eat so long as the service is good and the food is reasonable value for money but that all goes out the window when you eat at Table 51. The service... More

Table for 6. Sat outside, glad we did as it noisy inside. Asked for a glass of house red, when it came it was off! No problem getting another. Owner spoke to us and fixed this. Also said there was parking spot for our friends who were having difficulty getting a park. Menu was quite extensive. My entree of scallops... More

For the service we got, it was well overpriced. We waited over 2 hours for food, by the time we started eating, the restaurant was empty and the staff had started packing up to close, disappointing graduation dinner
