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
Sitting proudly in the heart of Elsternwick is this unique venue with an Indochine inspired menu of delicious food and drinks.

The exotic greenery and styling seen throughout Bang Bang’s gorgeous indoor spaces flows out to a relaxed outdoor courtyard sitting adjacent to the local park.

Despite the venue’s bustling city vibe, Bang Bang is a laid-back social hotspot for locals in the South East.

Please note any patrons that book in for “outdoor” or “counter” seating will be sat outdoors & will be exposed to the elements. All outdoor tables use Me&u, an order at the table QR code ordering system. All bookings made on either “standard” or “high top” seating are completely undercover or inside the venue.

About the restaurant
Hochi Mama was the God Mother of all aspiring street artists and rappers in the early nineties. An immigrant in the big city, she hosted underground art shows along with rap battles for the rejects; a place where you could just be at home, but with family. The whole crew was always welcome, the more the merrier, and she was well renowned for creating innovative dishes using the original famous dishes from her home country, and plenty of booze, in her spacious and homey warehouse.

This cheeky, vibrant and buzzing Vietnamese Fusion venue is one for your to-do list. Boasting a killer menu and a super cool vibe, this place is known for a cocktail, feast or an intimate date night.

About the restaurant
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.

Ticks all round! Get the Saigon Social banquet - such bang for your buck. The food was not just incredibly generous, but absolutely delicious. Each meal was as good as the other, the staff were so patient, fun & friendly. Can’t wait to go back. Definitely a gem of a place to show our out of town friends what Melbourne eats is all about. Thanks team!

About the restaurant
Here at Sum Yung Guys we have not only designed the menu, but also the dinning room to highlight our spirit and passion for Asian cuisine and culture. The food is an expression of everything we have come to love a about the region, the cocktails have been developed to compliment. We have crafted the menu to promote a share style; this would suggest we we strongly encourage dinning with friends, family and beyond. The dinning room has been styled to capture the personalities of the 4 partners that share this dream; it has a warmth and energy that resembles the food we on the plate. Our dream is not only to have our food and beverages represent our passion for excellence, but also have our service exceed anyones expectations in a casual environment.

If you require further information please call the restaurant on (07) 5324 1391 or email us info@sumyungguys.com.au

Led by our experienced and acclaimed head chef and owner Tony Percuoco, every day of the week we serve up remarkable dishes. From the indulgence eight-course degustazione menu, though to a classic true Neapolitan pizza with an imported Italian beer, we are always focused on authentic Italian hospitality.

Wonderful evening - we sat upstairs and would only ask for a bit more volume in the music and ambient noise as acoustics meant we couldn’t “drown out” neighbouring groups. But great food and great wine pairings and recommendations from the servers. Thank you and will be back!

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.

Both Lui Bar and Vue de Monde were sensational. From the time, we were greeted by the concierge staff, to the drinks at Lui Bar, and the amazing chef's tasting menu at Vue de monde. Really enjoyed the kitchen tour, I never seen this before. So it was a real treat. Staff were amazing.

Barangaroo
About the restaurant
At the edge of the CBD, in the spectacular 22-hectare waterfront precinct where an old container terminal once stood, discerning foodies can now find some of the city’s best sushi in Barangaroo. Established in 2016, the newest addition to the Zushi restaurant empire is in Sydney’s impressive new harbour foreshore playground. Zushi Barangaroo is both stylish and comfortable, capturing the relaxed style of a typical Japanese bar or izakaya designed by the renowned architect Koichi Takada. We offer premium service complimented with a wide selection of imported beers, Japanese inspired cocktails, and Japanese sake and whisky.
Zushi prides itself on using only carefully sourced local ingredients; the freshest vegetables and sustainable seafood where possible and most of the menu is gluten-free. We are open every day for lunch and dinner, serving delectable sushi, sashimi and share plates. And the glorious harbour views are pretty tasty too.

About the restaurant
Hero's menu reflects, award winning chef, Karen Martini's love of cuisines from all over the world, techniques and produce used to create them, but overall, it showcases Karen's cooking ethos of simply using and highlighting the absolute best of Victorian seasonal produce.

Hero overall is uncomplicated and accessible contemporary dining with a European twist. Expect good sized portions, a special experience of different flavours, colours and textures, with the same being said about the atmosphere. Hero is somewhere you can sit back, work your way through the menu, and take in and reflect upon Melbourne’s famous food and art culture over specially selected wines and cocktails.

An all-day menu will run from 12pm until late daily, providing travellers, movie-goers and business lunchers with a reliable haunt at any time.
