Raes is such a special place. Overlooking Wategos beach through the frangipani trees we enjoyed lunch. Fresh seafood flavours. The menu is extensive with a degustation and the spa looks worth coming back to. Excellent service. A real treat. The Bromleys were a highlight too.

I took my daughter there for dinner for her birthday and it was amazing... We had the degustation menu and to this day we are still salivating with the thought of it. The service was amazing too! We'll be back for sure!

Spectacular location and a wide range of fantastic meals to choose from. Was here with a group of 12 and we were very well looked after. A little away from Byron (5-10 minutes) no no trouble for a car or Taxi. Very nice meal.

View is great. Place is romantic. Food is the best. Olives are a bit more salty than we thought but overall is two thumbs up

Fantastic place for a lazy Sunday breakfast. Relaxed atmosphere and arguably the best views in Byron. Baked eggs with goats curd were delicious. My partner had the scrambled eggs ... fresh ingredients and also wonderful service. Very reasonably priced.
