About the restaurant
Enjoy the breathtaking waterfront views, sparkling starry night skies, and refreshing breezes of our outdoor balcony, or opt for indoor air-conditioned seating to beat the heat (which can be a must in North Queensland!).

Our restaurant's name, A Touch of Salt, is a play on our family name, Brine. In 2005, we started as a family business, and our family-style approach of offering genuine hospitality and meals designed for conversation has always been the heart of A Touch of Salt. Over the years, we have perfected our restaurant to become one of the best casual fine-dining restaurants in the North.

We take pride in being appreciated by the locals of Townsville as well as travellers from all over Australia.

About the restaurant
Set in the main street of Sorrento, Bistro Elba is the creative work of close and successful restaurateur friends, who skipped the big city to bring their urban edge to this beautiful place by the sea.

As it should be, the season’s harvest informs the menu. Cooking here is skillfully simple, using superb produce grown close by including from the Bistro Elba's kitchen garden, alongside foraged ingredients, organic meat, hand made cheeses, and daily fresh fish sourced from the best, ethical fisheries and cleanest oceans in the world.

Emerge was established in February of 2019.  This restaurant focuses on steak and features wagyu, full blood wagyu, 100% grass fed as well as in house dry aged steaks.  Emerge can feature up to 10 steaks of various cuts at anyone time. Although a steakhouse Emerge doesn’t leave anyone behind.  It really does have something for everyone.  Using mainly proteins, vegetables and local artisan suppliers, the simplicity of the menu is naturally driven towards being gluten free.  For this reason, Emerge is a popular location for coeliacs to safely dine.  Although we refer to Emerge as using simple ingredients flavour is not lacking! 

Emerge is a sister venue to the c up-and-coming restaurant Conclude.

Emerge is not fine dining but something special.  The atmosphere is warm and friendly yet moody and intimate.  Open lunch & dinner Monday- Saturday, book on in and enjoy!

A collaboration with renowned Melbourne chefs Shannon Martinez (Smith & Daughters, Smith & Daughters Deli) and Ian Curley (French Saloon, Kirk’s Wine Bar), Lona Misa is a rebellious renaissance from root to stem, sustainably crafted to be seasonal, full of flavour, and memorable. The result? "A deliciously lively eatery that provides the ideal setting for coming together and taking part in the simple act of enjoying good food that is kind to the planet" (TimeOut).

Awarded One Hat by the prestigious Good Food Guide 2023, Lona Misa’s Latin fare and bistro dining collide against the norms of the classical medley you know of vegan and vegetarian dining. Think of dishes like Brazilian steafood stew Moqueca, roasted padron & manchego croquetas, or pastor mushrooms grilled over charcoals on Josper with corn puree, fermented pineapple & chilli.

We loved our dining experience at the Union Bank. All the dishes were incredible.... the bread, the stracciatella, the octapus... the sirloin was out of this world!! We loved that all meals were shared. The wait staff were very attentive and helpful. Thank you for a fabulous evening and introduction to what Orange has to offer. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend to our family and friends.

Take it slow… Have a drink to start. Enjoy a cocktail, local wine or craft beer, Share a snack or two in our dedicated Bar.
Smell the delicious smokiness of Bendigo’s only dedicated steakhouse & grill, where we use local redgum on the grill; there’s nothing quite like the flavour of meat cooked over redgum. The natural smoky flavours and aromas created by this unique timber are something truly special. In the finest tradition of steakhouses, we use locally sourced meat and the very best in fresh, regional produce.

Showcasing 350 wines, including 28 by the glass, including some seriously interesting wines curated by our inhouse Sommelier. With local wines taking pride of place, including some intriguing European offerings, plus a supporting cast of spirits, beers and other beverages, including a decent alcohol-free selection. Cocktail drinkers will be impressed with our seasonally curated list.

Our menu is updated seasonally and available on our website.

Disappointing to have the specials written up on the wall where all the tables are - could they be moved to the opposite bare plain wall perhaps? I felt a little uncomfortable having the wait staff so close to the tables right opposite..

About the restaurant
Vue de monde is a testament to the belief that dining can be a wondrous and unforgettable experience. The ever-changing chef’s menu pays homage to classical fine dining in a modern context by exploring the beauty of native Australian ingredients. While in the past the menu looked to Europe for inspiration, Executive Chef Hugh Allen continues to celebrate the unparalleled quality of home-grown produce with thoughtfully considered dishes committed to seasonality and locality.

Vue de monde has been synonymous with Melbourne dining for almost 20 years, continuing to present an exciting and dynamic experience with a progression of flavours and sense of curiosity. The whimsical spirit at the heart of the Vue de monde menu has not been lost throughout the years, with the lighter-handed and more natural approach to cooking being no less infused with theatre.

Food was excellent! We were kept waiting a few times and we were dining with a toddler where every second counts so perhaps were a bit more aware but we had to ask for the bill to come.
