I just wanted to write and say thank you for the terrific experience last night and to compliment your wonderful team, in particular the lovely lady who served us last night (although I'm afraid I didn't get her name).
We had some of our Sydney team in town and made a reservation at Michels - the food was spectacular and the service was faultless.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful evening.
Just wanted to let you know that I thought dinner at Michel's on Saturday night was up there with some of the best I have experienced. Loved the new menu - we have been to a few of Cairns supposedly "Top" restaurants but Michels seriously outclassed anything I have experienced recently. I hope you are really proud of what you have achieved there - from having visited in your early days of new ownership to now, things have just kept on improving - I will be bragging to our foodie friends here in Cairns about the top eatery in Townsville that rivals Cairns' best.
Thanks for a wonderful night!
We didn't have a reservation so were lucky to get a table. We ordered the 7 course degustation with matching wines. We were not disappointed. Allow 2 hours to complete the courses. My favourite dishes were the hot smoked salmon and the pork belly but really all dishes were beautiful. The service was fantastic, our servers were very knowledgeable of the wines. Recommend to anyone that enjoys fine dining.
Haven't been back for about 18 months and wow I wish I came back sooner! Duck tortellini was my highlight for the night! Service was perfect, felt so comfortable. If you haven't been lately get in there now!
It was my birthday last weekend when we were home in Cairns and my husband offered to take me out to dinner. I put a rain check on it until we went to Townsville so we could go to Michels and I am so glad we did. We stated off with the tomato, capsicum and eggplant bruschetta and it was divine. I had fish for a main and it was divine. My hubby had a steak and he really enjoyed that too. The desserts all looked amazing, but we couldn't choose, it was too hard. A lovely setting,exceptional food and great service. That is why it is still so popular after so many years and a favourite with the locals.
Our family has been to the restaurant a quite a few times and it is always a pleasure. I have a dairy intolerance and on the last visit the waitress was outstanding, ensuring all of my food was safe and delicious. Each course was amazing and beautifully paced. A relative from Melbourne was with us on our last visit and he had the Seafood Bouillabaisse, he said it was exceptional - he is extremely fussy so that is saying something!!! The extensive wine list was also fantastic.
This is a wonderful restaurant. The staff are brilliant. But wait till you see the menu and wine list! Degustation Oysters desert the eyes where agog! Pity my stomach is not bigger. 2 visits in a week and yes we will be back. Each time has been a delight.
Highly recommended when visiting Townsville QLD
