Welcome to JAM ,
Enjoy a warm and relaxed dining experience whilst you indulge in the tastes of North Queensland . We like to explore our regional and seasonal produce and create contemporary cuisine without compromising the purity of flavour.

The JAM menu offers quick bites for a catch up through to our full a la carte selection. We also have a great special luncheon menu that is always popular.

As the sun sets over the CBD and Castle Hill sit back and relax over dinner at one of the window tables or enjoy the views of the river and CBD lights on the terrace. For a romantic degustation dinner we recommend one of the private booths,


Our wine list offers over 100 wines ranging from small Australian producers through to stunning international champagne and wines.

Matt and the team look forward to welcoming you soon.

    Food was well presented but flavours and quality weren’t what they should be for the price. Great service when they forgot a side and had it cooked in time to still eat while finishing our main. Their lava cake was way over cooked - basically a tepid muffin.

    Overall food was ok though for the price I’d expect a little more (in terms of portion, complexity to make the meal). Place was very noisy and hard to speak to fellow diners on the table.

    We had the 2 course menu and shared our entrees. Impressive wine choice, sublime food, lovely service, stylish decor. We loved it so much that we are going back on Tuesday night for dinner! It was recommended to us in Mildura by a Brisbanite who works at times in Townsville and we will be delighted to be able to report back to him positively.

    As always, lovely meals, drinks and staff. Did get a little loud at a couple of stages, we had a couple with a whingy child with them near us, not the type of place I'd ever bring my two children but each to their own. Then towards the end of our night it was getting rather full and loud, but wasn't too bad.

    The quality of the restaurant is high. Seating, ambience etc all ok. Food, service and wine lists are very good, although we had some long waiting periods and there were errors in service. We had the degustation menu and the quality was reasonable but we left feeling terribly hungry and went home for a snack. In my view this is unacceptable, and the excuse that it is only ‘tasting’ does not make sense. I suggest they revise this policy because it certainly detracts from an otherwise good experience.

    Beautiful atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food - ideal for a catch up with friends or a special event with loved ones. We decided on JAM for my birthday. We loved our meals, the entrees were great- Gnochi was amazing as were the Scallops, mains - Crispy chicken with Black Rice quite a big serving while the Duck breast was a little on the small side (we shared a side salad) and shared a dessert. Everything was beautifully presented.
