We were welcomed straight away and shown our table by the friendly staff. All throughout the night they ensured we were enjoying ourselves, and we certainly did. The food was very well presented and super tasty - you should try the goats cheese, caramelised red onion pizza (can't remember what it was called) - delicious!

I organised a special meal here for our wedding anniversary and I wasn't disappointed. The staff were very accommodating as I required a couple of changes to their degustation menu, which they very happily obliged. From the moment we walked in, to when we walked out, we felt very much looked after.
The menu was 6 courses, with the finest of food. Flat bread with duck, seared scallops, macadamia crusted reef fish, rib fillet on horseradish mash and chocolate mousse cake to finish. Each meal was accompanied with a very well matched wine.
For $100 per person, we felt that it was well worth the expense. Everything was cooked superbly and the waiter was very friendly, helpful and incredibly knowledgeable of the menu and wines.
We will certainly go back.

Been dining at Ciabatta few times now. Food was nicely presented and cooked. Service was excellent. Can feel a bit over crowded and overly noisy sometimes but the overall experience is pleasant. It is probably one of the best in Townsville.

My daughter had booked 6 weeks prior for a special occasion for 4 people. We would have expected a table that was not directly at the restaurant entry with an automatic door opening and closing all night (obviously the table for for someone else as it was set for five people. We were not happy to be sitting there). We asked the maitre'd (not the regular maitre'd apparently) that this was booked weeks in advance and could we get another table and he replied that that was all he had, take it or leave it. We took the table and were given a round of drinks taken off our bill at the end of the night. They should have at least provided to move us to another table when one became available. Very bad service for a supposedly fine dining restaurant. Food was only average. Will not return. Only stayed to please my daughter and her partner as it was too late to book somewhere else.

I cannot believe we waited this long to try out Ciabatta, it was amazing! I would highly recommend it and strongly suggest that any of my friends going invite me to come with them. The service was immaculate, the cocktails were delicious and the food was sublime.
