A Touch of Salt
Take in the waterfront views, starry night skies and cooling breezes of our alfresco balcony, or dine indoors in the air-conditioned comfort (sometimes a must in North Queensland!).
The name, A Touch of Salt, is a play on our family name, Brine. Our restaurant began as a family business more than 10 years ago and our family-style approach of genuine hospitality and meals designed to encourage conversation has remained the heart of A Touch of Salt. We have spent the past decade crafting our restaurant as one of the North’s best casual fine dining restaurants.
We are pleased to say our restaurant is appreciated not just by Townsville locals but also by travelers and diners from around Australia.

Wonderful every time
We had a beautiful dinner. The food was delicious and the service was amazing
Always love dining here! The food is amazing and the service is perfect.
Food was delicious & service was outstanding! I would highly recommend a visit.
I’d heard friends rave about A touch of salt and am so glad I finally got to experience it myself. The online booking was quick and easy, and from the minute we arrived we were very impressed. The environment and the service was fantastic. While a little on the pricey side, the food was delicious and well worth it! Thoroughly enjoyed dinner and will definitely be back.
Always sensational and never disappoints - thank you !
Delicious, well-presented food and very good service. We sat outside on a very pleasant evening which was lovely (though in summer that can be a bit of a lottery). Highly recommended!
The service and location are great. Good spacing between tables, good lighting, not too loud. The food itself was average, the Asian fusion came through but ended up making the starter (spring rolls), entree (cuttlefish), and main (duck), all taste like overpowering fish sauce and sweetness. Was a good night out overall though.
We have been friends with this restaurant for a wee while now and like good friends, we don't need to visit regularly BUT WE DO.!! Soo good.!Go on, treat yourself.
Good wait times. Lovely service delicious food!! Definitely recommend! Such an amazing night!
Beautiful food and dining experience. Plan for dessert.
Great experience! Thanks for having us. We will certainly be back.
A touch of salts attention to detail, customer service abs food equality is what keeps us coming back for more. Thank you for a great night out.
Absolutely loved our experience here. The ambiance was lovely, the menu was intriguing, and every bite of food contained a delightful explosion of flavours, Will definitely be dining here again!

Great experience for a special occasion dinner. Staff were great, food was excellent.
The food was delicious, service was great with very helpful staff . The waitress arrived at the right times without having to look for them.
There was four for our meal and had all different meals.

Awesome food, drinks and atmosphere would highly recommend
Had a beautiful lunch. Food was delicious and service was great. :)
Wonderful meal and great staff. Great family lunch and atmosphere. Everyone loved the meals and drinks. We'll be back.
I hope next time to have a steak knife to cut my duck not a blend butter knife. The food was terrific. We will comeback.
Outstanding food and great service. Thoroughly enjoyed the flavourful food
As usual, we were warmly greeted by the owner, however the level of "warmth" was not necessarily extended to the "wait" staff and our waiter could have smiled and been more attentive to our needs.
Our mains were perfect...tasty, different and a good size.
Desserts were nicely presented but could have been a little tastier than they were.
from the moment we walked in the front door, we were warmly greeted and seated at our table. we were given menus and drink lists and ordered our drinks. the young service provider was quiet, efficient and very warm in personality. we ordered entrees that arrived in an expedient manner and to say the very least were absolutely delicious. our mains were delivered after an acceptable time space and were better than the entree. the presentation and taste was gourmet quality and to be honest was not what we expected to find in townsville. do yourself a favour and eat at this gem of a place with quality, unobtrusive service along with five star food. cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
Perfect! Every time we go, we can’t wait to come back!
Delicious food served at appropriate intervals by attentive staff and definitely value for money and Townsville’s best restaurant.
Beautiful food, excellent speedy service. Definitely recommend!
Great food, the service was amazing and would highly recommend
Always a beautiful meal. Absolutely love the scallops!
I have dietary needs and these were catered to beautifully. My request for simple food was received respectfully and the catering was discreet and exactly what I needed.
The service was friendly and respectful and the air conditioning was turned down when it was noticed that I was feeling cold (without me having to ask).
The food was amazing. The service was sensational, always checking to make sure we didn't need anything. As always, friendly and great with the kids. Kids felt their meals were perfect which is saying something
It is always spot on. Could not fault our experience.
Live away from Townsville for 6 yrs, had dinner this week. Still great service, great flavours, good portion sizes(not tiny) and service was excellent. Good to see Townsville still has that one go to place. Thanks we will be back. Couldn’t fault it.
Food was incredible! Service was amazing and atmosphere was lovely. Could not fault.
Delicious food & cocktails. Will definitely return for another meal.
One of our favourite restaurants in Townsville, great food and service I highly recommend visiting to this restaurant you won’t be disappointed
