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.

We visited A Touch of Salt from the Sunshine Coast and were delighted with the warm welcome we received, the efficient service and the presentation and quality of the food.
Found a hair in our mains and the steak was really chewy.
Decor is dated and makes the place feel cheap for the prices you pay
Romantic and relaxed atmosphere, helpful, polite and respectful staff and divine food as always.
Amazing restaurant. Made our anniversary feel very special. Had the most beautiful time. Incredible food too
Food and service was great this was our 3rd time back to the restaurant and highly recommend it.
This place would be a 10/10 provided the 'vagrant' community was not present.
Food was amazing as usual and service cannot be faulted, always a special touch provided as this was an early birthday dinner for my mum that dessert was served with Happy Birthday written on the plate for her. This place always makes us feel special.
Best restaurant I have been to in years. Great friendly service, fantastic food, lovely place, I just cannot fault it.
We enjoyed a wonderful Anniversary dinner last night under the stars
Everyone was so helpful the food was superb.
Refined, delicious and very enjoyable dining - highly recommended.
We had our wedding anniversary dinner and the food was great and loved the special touch ‘happy anniversary❤️”onto our dessert.
Fantastic dinner for my birthday. Really enjoyed it
Great service and quality food and wine
As first time dinners here, we found the service and food was amazing. We will definitely be coming back again.
This was not our first time to A Touch of Salt and we have never been disappointed. This is a fine restaurant which could hold it’s head up high anywhere
Always good. Never disappoints. The best in Townsville.
The ambience was excellent. A bit of a wait for the main meal. And the meal was good but very small serve.
Our go to special dinner place, never disappoints
We had such a lovely night. Staff were so helpful and friendly and the food was amazing!! We will be back
Lovely meeting Mark and table servers, beautiful meal and thoroughly enjoyed.
Fantastic food and service thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
We had a Lovely meal for our anniversary. Would go back.
Great food and wine, very attentive service (without being “in your face”), and perfect ambience - what more do you look for for a delightful meal out with friends.
Best restaurant in Townsville . Excellent options for Coeliacs
We had an excellent night. The food was exceptional.
Very welcoming environment. Food was delicious, staff were helpful and accessible when needed.
A great night was enjoyed by all 6 diners.
Great service, friendly staff. Beautiful food. Fabulous location and outdoor dining options.
Great spot and the plant based menu was devine. Cocktails were great especially the apple martini!
Always excellent food, wine and ambiance. The brine family are incredibly welcoming.
Absolutely wonderful. The food was amazing, the staff were fantastic, and the cocktail menu is great. It was the perfect place to celebrate.
Fantastic as always! Nice to see Mark as well. Thanks.
Amazing service the food is always great. It’s so good they now have a plant based range. It was a little noisy for my liking inside, but my husband said it was an ok level for him.
We were met on arrival and quickly seated. waited 25 minutes for a first beverage and subsequent drinks were slow in coming. Starter was nice, my partner and I recieved them at the same time. The entree and mains came seperately and we had someone elses main delivered with my entree. The staff seemed confused and ill directed, service overall was very poor and detracted from our anniversary meal significantly. We did give feedback when we paid and were told the experienced staff were not working due to lockdown. We have been to Touch of Salt a lot previously and it has always been lovely.
Very very basic. Second time trying a touch of salt and unfortunately it’s just extremely average.
Service was delightful and prompt.
A Touch of Salt never seems to disappoint. The staff are so welcoming and cheerful. Nothing is ever a bother. We could not fault the food. Beautifully presented and the different tastes divine. Always a pleasant evening.
On arrival the atmosphere was inviting and friendly. The table service and attention to specific requests were great. The roast duck was superb with its mix of delightful flavours emanating from the sauce and vegetables. All members of the family thoroughly enjoyed their meal which complemented a milestone birthday event.
Food is fantastic, service is great. Nice cocktails available.
Wonderful night out, excellent service. Vegan options were delicious!
As always a fantastic adventure for our taste buds.. small servings of incredible flavour combinations were enjoyed over all 4 servings..
A bit noisy inside with many animated diners around but outside is much quieter, lovely spot
Always wonderful!!! Loved the reef fish! Service is fantastic!!
