Had dinner here for my birthday and it was outstanding. From the moment we walked in, we were looked after. Drink service outstanding, food came out quick, considering there was a full restaurant too. All our meals were amazing! And good portions too. I have nothing bad to say about this place!

My partner booked a table at Michel's to celebrate my 50th birthday. The service was efficient, but the food was even better. After sharing Oysters Kilpatrick, we both ordered the steaks with Asian greens as our side. Every morsel was cooked to perfection. Our only regret is that we had no room left to try the delicious sounding desserts! Compliments... More

Food is very yummy. More of the upper end of other restaurants on palmer street. Service is good. But food and drinks are pricey

Michel’s restaurant is fine dining at its best, it’s that good. Executive Chef, Craig Smith has created an excellent degustation menu that delivered a climax of flavours! It was the grown-up equivalent of Christmas morning, anticipating what clever delights await when dishes arrive with innovative offerings. The food wasn’t the only super star that rocked, each course was matched with... More

Held my sons 21st here, could not ask for an easier experience. The evening went beyond my expectations. Service and food were divine. The menu is extensive and interesting for all. Enjoyed my duck tortellini will be going back for another try of other items. Great wine list.
