“Good food and quick service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Over the past few days while in Townsville for work I ate there twice for tea and twice for breakfast with other workmates . Service was good and meals didnt take long.Staff had a smile and were friendly and I thought the food was pretty good. The pizza I had one night was very nice and well worth ordering.Plenty of places to eat in Palmer street but Bistro 1 has consistent good food and staying at the Quest with the chargeback is very convenient

“Casual Friday Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Just wanted a relatively cheap
night so looked in our Entertainment book and found a voucher for here.

The service was great - pleasant and efficient.

Our drinks came out quickly as did the dips we ordered to have with them.

We both ordered eye fillet and it was cooked just the way we like it and it was very tasty. We could have done with a little more sauce on the side though,

All in all it was worth the effort of changing clothes on a Friday night ,

“Sadly, disappointing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Near $20 for burger, chips n coke that was near identical to an HJ's chicken burger. No effort in food presentation, staff were ok, dealt with one friendly and one I different waitress. Really wanted to like the place but they just didn't deliver the goods.

“OK if everywhere else is packed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

The food at Bistro One appears to be slowly getting worse and worse. I've been coming here off and on for 5 years. It used to be a reliable and "quite good" option on Palmer St. Over the years the quality of the food has got progressively worse until nowadays it's really only just about OK. If everywhere on Palmer St is packed and you just want somewhere quieter for a feed then this might be the go. The fact that on a Friday night when everywhere else was mobbed this place had only about 5 tables seated probably says it all.

“Good dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

We had dinner here on a Friday night & sat at a footpath table. Service was fine. I had a chicken parma which was tasty & filling & my other half had a pizza which he said was ok but had had better (difficult when you're a Melbourne foodie)!!!! Overall we enjoyed it!
