We were immediately taken by the menu and the location opposite the beach. It all fell apart quickly from there. We ordered a bottle of Sauvignon which arrived in the dirtiest old, broken plastic 'ice bucket' i've ever seen. We ordered arancini as a starter, which any good Italian restaurant should be able to make easily, wow they were so... More

Located next to beach but fenced in enough to be away from the rat race. Good service and nice food.

We went to this restaurant because the atmosphere was very appealing being on the beach and next to the beach hotel. We didn't expect the food to be so amazing. The menu was the best I have seen in a long time. I had the snapper on cauliflowers purée with broccolini and green apple and walnut. So delicious. Even the... More

Had dinner here with my wife. I had the red snapper which was perfect! My wife had the tuna pasta, it tasted ok, but not much tuna with a lot of pasta. Service was good.

They may share a roof with the pub but the food is a cut above pub fare. Following a nicely proportioned antipasto platter my Barramundi in bisque with fregola pasta was a standout as was my wife's red snapper on cauliflower puree. Service was great, un- hurried and attentive, look forward to coming back.

I didn't even know this restaurant existed in Byron Bay as it is tucked away behind the Byron Beach Hotel. Luckily we stumbled across it one night and enjoyed one of the best meals we have had in a while. The waitress was very friendly and attentive, such great service. The cocktails were amazing, hats off to the barman. The... More

We visited here on short trip to Byron. We hadn't booked, although a table was arranged with no fuss. The food was beautiful, tasty and well presented. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable when helping with the wine choice , we had Down the Rabbit hole Shiraz (excellent). Only slight criticism is that the tables for 2 were slightly cramped...

A great family dinner out. Our stunning and friendly Australian waitress was really on her game and provided top notch service. The bruschetta was tasty and the cocktails timely and well made. Lasagne looks small but is rich and wholesome with tender pulled beef and rich becamel sauce. Penna alla Amatraciana was rich and wholesome. The duck (Amatra?) was rich... More
