Nice meal with friends, showers threatening to spoil the evening. The whole concept of eating in the garden is spoilt if you have to move inside. Luckily we stayed dryish. Good food and lots of laughs. Menu was 'more out there' than I remembered previously. Service and food had great attention to detail. A couple of choices weren't quite what... More

The food is great, with rather special sauces, and a very quirky menu, with good sized meals (smaller rather than larger), if a little heavy on the protein. It seems though, to have a traditional 'home-style' vibe, run by two people, and only 2 people, which could give a lovely feel, instead it leaves you waiting an age, having to... More

Just the two of them; Wayne does the (excellent) cooking and Adele takes the orders, advises, describes, and smiles. A little off the beaten track in South Townsville, this is a relaxed, unprepossessing, gem with a good variety of home cooked dishes and some surprising taste combinations on the menu - bluecheese and date ice cream! As the name suggests,... More

Loved the chance to try something different. There were flavour combinations that surprised. Went for lunch and chose the entree size so I could comfortably fit in dessert. In summer would recommend sitting inside as Townsville can be warm. Pricing was reasonable. BYO.

What a brilliant find this place was. The food was truly amazing and the place has a wonderful ambience with great chill out music and soft lighting. It was raining the night we ate there so we didn't get to experience the magical outdoor area. Will definitely come back next time. Wayne uses fresh ingredients from their garden and the... More

Unexpected excellent food in a un assuming location. No ordinary food here. My husband chose venison and I went for one of the vegetarian dishes and we were both very happy with these dishes.

A seasonal menu, two restaurateurs with an absolute love of trade. Garden of eating will never tire as a beautiful dining experience whatever the evening, whatever the company. As I'm sure I've said before, this is a must try for anyone in townsville or in North Queensland, unique brilliance such as this is hard to comeby. Bless you both for... More

What a cute boutique restaurant, Adele is very attentive and takes time to explain the menu and special dishes they have on offer. The food is breathtaking and worth every cent. If your looking for a quirky little restaurant look no further Wayne and Adels garden of Eating is amazing my husband and I enjoyed our evening out.

Went on a dinner date to Garden of Eating. I was a little nervous that I was going to struggle to find something on the menu because i'm fussy but it wasn't an issue at all. We sat in the cute garden courtyard & bought our own wine. It was a lovely outdoor setting for a date. The food was... More
