Can't compliment this meal enough. Not a lot of choice but that didn't matter as the meals that we all ordered were just brilliant. Pure quality. Great quality of produce that was cooked very well. Just beautiful!! Good choices of wine also.

From making the reservation over telephone, the driving up and down the street unable to find the restaurant (and a staff member, coming outside in the street, so we could find the location) and the attention on arriving and attentive table service (from Henry) the customer service was outstanding! Our food and beverage experience was amazing, we had a memorable... More

Always memorable, always exceptional. Having dined here on many occasions both for events, lunches and dinners I can honestly say that this restaurant should be on every visitor to Townsville's must do list. Five Stars

The menu had something for everyone and every dish had a surprise element and evoked discussion and comparison amongst the other guests. The staff were attentive and did everything possible to make it a special night for the guest of honour.

The owner Mark and his team serve delicious, expertly presented meals that would be at home in Sydney, London or Paris...and yes I've dined at all locations. Certainly a venue for that special celebration meal, or just a... More

We have been going to A Touch of Salt for a number of years now for Family Celebrations. It's my wife's favourite "gobto" place for her birthday every year, and for our anniversary every July. The staff have always been accommodating there, and are all very knowledgeable when it comes to suggestions of wines to have with your selected meals.... More

The best fine dining in Townsville. The online booking was stubborn so we just rocked up. The front of house guy was super friendly and sat us at the bar where the bartender kept us happy with some excellent wine - so impressed I bought a bottle. While I drooled over the best ragout croquettes ever my husband indulged in... More
