We (7 of us) had a Buffet meal at $65 per head. The food was amazing - for everyone except me. As a vegetarian I was assured there would be plenty of 'vegetables' & "beautiful food"... however all the vegetarian food was basically platter type...food (marinated veg, pickled veg & a small shared plate of eggplant) Pretty disappointing for $65. The meat dishes looked amazing... however it would have been nice to have a vegetarian orientated meal/serve that was something more than basic pickled or marinated vegetables or dips & flat bread. Surely the chef can include something more interesting for non meat eaters?More

Worth a quick Uber out of town. This mezzo style restaurant is funny and happening. Service was relaxed and friendly. Loved the barbecue meat dishes and the mushroom and zucchini sides are a must. Will be going back.

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Barrio for lunch on our recent visit to Byron and it was such an incredible experience and really set the bar high for our stay! The food was all so delicious, presented beautifully with their...own personal flare and you could tell that there was pride taken in all aspects which just enhanced our (customers) experience. We enjoyed the taziki, flatbread, fish plate, hand cup chips and pumpkin - all of which we would happily order again! The octopus and picked mussels were stand outs ( included in fish plate) - my husband and I usually avoid mussels but decided to give them a go as they were included in the fish plate and wow are we glad we did...they have changed our view on mussels forever! We are looking forward to coming back again and trying some of the other option on the menu!More

Very generous sized tapas compared to those of Spanish tavernas. Uniformly tasty, high quality dishes. Not expensive considering that quality and quick responsive service which suggest they're not skimping on staff. And the open-air nature of venue is both quieter and better ventilated than many...more-traditional eateries. FranzMore

Place was nice, big indoor and outdoor space. Wouldn’t do scrambled egg for a kid only fried, shame. Bacon was super tasty. Got simple toast with jam and one serve of bacon. Not a huge menu. Great outdoor seating.

Our group had lunch, mixed vegetable and meat platters and fries. Food is good quality but prices are v high given the quantity. Given size, prices are higher than Sydney city or Sydney Eastern suburbs prices. Good food, not good value. Have a coffee and...snack.More

Must have the sausage roll! Seemingly an ordinary Aussie snack, this Cafe takes it to the next level. If you're a small eater this alone with a drink is enough, add on a salad (also tasty) and we were happily full. For me, one of...the best cafes in ByronMore

Excellent wait staff who are very attentive. Variety of food is excellent and the wine list is well priced. Certainly would come back again.

This is a fun place to eat in Byron Bay. Situated out of the hustle and bustle of Byron’s township, Barrio has a great atmosphere which is backed up with good music, excellent tapas and attentive staff. Definitely a place to eat if visiting Byron.
