Townsville luxury hotel Ardo unveils three restaurant experiences

Townsville’s newest five-star hotel Ardo has launched three distinct restaurant experiences including a rooftop bar.

Ardo’s signature restaurant Marmor offers elevated Australian dining paired with an extensive reserved wine list and a sommelier on-hand to provide wine pairing suggestions.

“My vision was always to create a unique, high-end, intimate and exclusive dining experience never before seen in Townsville,” said Head Chef Arie Prabowo.


“We have an exceptional menu featuring ingredients sourced from renowned beef from Flinders Island, fresh coral trout from Cardwell and the most succulent of oysters from Tasmania, all paired with an international wine list sourced from the very best vineyards.”

Terasu offers a more relaxed dining experience with modern Japanese fare led by Head Chef Yukio Ozeki.

“My aim is to make it as authentic as possible,” Ozeki said. “Our most popular dishes are the fresh sushi, especially the bluefin tuna flown in from Japan. The menu also features plenty of modern Japanese options like the chicken karaage or Black Opal Wagyu scotch fillet which has an impressive marble score of 9.”


North Queensland’s first infinity rooftop pool, Ardo Rooftop offers tapas-style eats and a curated cocktail list, set against panoramic views of the Coral Sea.

“The response to Ardo Rooftop has been phenomenal,” said Ardo Rooftop Bar Head Chef Indika Wijerathna.

“We’re often booked out thanks to the breathtaking panoramic views, international tapas on repeat and selection of refreshing beverages. The bar is forever changing thanks to seasonal menus, cocktail specials and that spectacular sunset which is never the same and always a sight to see.”
