We ordered the slow cooked beef, mushroom penne...it was incredible. So rich & tasty & the beef just fell apart. The best dish of the holiday. The restaurant is in a good people watching so eating outdoors is recommended.

Staff friendly but meal had no flavour. Ordered the Pork belly, fattiest pork belly ever had. Gnocchi was ok but also not much flavour. Disappointed.

Located in Byron Bay be prepared for a chilled attitude and a little bit of a wait. Well worth it however as the food is great. The portions are generous and we even celebrity spotted Shelly Craft and her family at the next table.

I ordered the gnocchi which was delicious but very small. It was barely half the size of the other mains that we ordered but the same price ($29). I'm a 50kg female with a normal appetite. Other meals ordered were 'okay'. Probably wouldn't go here...More

On our month long stay in Byron, we came here to check out the new place and enjoyed the meal, but not enough to come back again in that time. The pork was a bit tough and not 'crackled'. The steak was nice, but not...More

We arrived to a half full restaurant although it quickly filled up after our arrival. Having spent time in Italy and enjoying the arancini balls there we ordered these right off. They were firm, tasty with a mushroom filling, perhaps a tad too long in...More
