Not sure if they're open for lunch, but check out the Red Ochre Grill <http://www.redochregrill.com.au/>.

Good suggestion of Orlando's for Red Ochre, this restaurant serves Australian game and seafood including Tableland redcraw, a type of small freshwater crayfish. It's open for lunch Mon-Friday and is on corner of Sheridan and Shields Sts.

If its a lovely day, you could do worse than Donnini's Ciao Italia, its on the boardwalk overlooking the Marlin Marina in front of Shangri-La hotel. Excellent Italian cuisine with the best pizza in the north. Open every day from 11am until late.

Tuesday-Friday lunch, C'est Bon, Lake St, the only true French restaurant in the north, it does a "business lunch" of two courses for AU$20 - this restaurant won the award for Best European Restaurant in Queensland, 2005.
