An indoor/outdoor restaurant, perfect for a seaside town like Byron Bay, with quality Mexican food in a relaxed atmosphere.
Extensive menu with the usual Mexican items but also some that you don't find too often.
They put enough chilli in the dishes for an authentic taste, fortunately.
There's a good drinks list and the margueritas are good.
Favorite Dish: I like beef burritos and chilli verde.
This is the best food in Byron if you like healthy mix up food. Its a salad bar with wraps and baked potatoes as well so theres something for everyone. You can make your own bowl of salad etc but you can also have stuff like chicken caesar wraps and tuna melt wraps or baked potatoes with beef bolognaise or mexican beans! Its a place you hear about after talking with other travellers because its not expensive and filling and healthy and locals like it to. I really love this spot in Byron it sums up what Byron is..
Favorite Dish: Spuddy Gonzales 10
Tuna wrap with caesar dressing instead of mayo 10
Beloporto is a great little burger bar hidden in Ferros Arcade in Byron Bay. I recommend them to everyone and i haven't come across anyone who hasn't enjoyed a burger from here. Locals and tourists alike love this place. It can sometimes get busy around lunchtime but the burgers are defiantly worth the wait.
Favorite Dish: I just love the Chicken burger combo. Burger, Chips and a Drink for $10.90 (1/9/11) It is just a awesome chicken burger that smells and tastes great.
We were staying at Suffolk Park caravan park, and I headed up to the very small local shopping centre to buy some coffees to take to the beach. While waiting for the coffee, I became aware of a most delightful aroma surrounding me, and I realised that this little cafe I had walked into without thinking about it much was actually a superb Indian diner. Once we finished at the beach, we all returned here for lunch and dinner, and we thoroughly enjoyed the food both times.
The diner has traditional Indian style dining tables inside which were absolutely perfect for my 3 year old, and were very comfortable for the rest of us too. There is also outdoor dining on western style tables.
At lunch we chose butter chicken for the children to share, which they loved, and we had a mixed plate of fish, vegetable, chickpea and dahl curries, all of which were perfectly spiced and mild to medium on the hotness.
For dinner we added Mango Chicken, which was delicious, but too (chilli) hot for the children, and beef korma which was so well cooked the meat melted in your mouth.
In addition to curry, the diner also does western style desserts, which we got to take-away and enjoyed them back in the cabin.
Favorite Dish: Overall I think I enjoyed the beef, fish and mango chicken dishes best, but we tried almost everything on the menu and it was all good. The beef must rate a special mention though for it's perfect melt in your mouth cooking and mild spicy flavours.
Belongil Beach house is practically an institution in Byron Bay, and it has always had a fine cafe/restaurant to feed the hungry, latte sipping backpacker hordes that pass through the doors. The latest arrival at Belongil is Satori, and it is still remains the perfect place to chill out with a coffee, enjoy a delicious lunch or breakfast while the sound of the beach just 50 metres away remind you that you are in Byron.
The ambience and setting are delightful, with a tasteful Buddha garden, wishing well waterfall, and patio and lounge seating.
The food was fantastic. We were (admittedly) coming of a run of mediocre fare have experienced disappointment in town twice, and so we were doubly grateful for the gentle presentation, the freshness of ingredients and the fantastic flavours that were served up that day.
Favorite Dish: We sat for lunch and had the falafel, roast pumpkin with haloumi, and the spinach and ricotta tortellini and it was all good. We also had coffees and fresh juice and they were excellent also.
The Beach Brasserie is in a central location off the main beach and offers an extensive local menu including fresh seafood, succulent steaks and there's also daily blackboard specials.
You can come in for coffee and cake, beer with snacks or a good selection of local wines to match your meal.
From the restaurant you can take in all the action happening on the beach with great views across the blue waters of Byron Bay.
There is plenty of alfresco seating under cover with ceiling fans to keep you cool on those long hot summer days.
The best fish 'n' chips I've had. Barramundi, snapper and several other (changing) kinds of fish, lightly deep-fried and with tempura vegies or chips or sallad in a tiny shop just off Jonson Street a hundred metres from the beach. You get your beer or half-bottle (it's not a place to stay for hours at) of pert Tasmanian sparkling wine at the bottle shop a tennis serve away. Tell 'em we miss 'em! (PS: great ice cream cones around the corner on Jonson!)
This Bakehouse caters for everything, you can get your breakfast, lunch and dinner here and also use the internet. The baked on the premises food is tasty and includes breads and rolls, meat pies, pasties, sandwiches, and all sorts of cakes and pastries. Whilst there you can use the internet facilities.
The Returned Services Clubs can be found in most New South Wales towns and provide good meals at reasonable prices. Usually there are several daily specials under AU$10, whilst there are the usual steaks and fish cooked to order, roast dinners, pasta dishes etc etc. We dined here one night and had a good meal for approx AU$16 each, not fine dining but good food and plenty of it. Full bar facilities are available and for the gamblers there are plenty of slot machines.
This is a large and comfortable restaurant where you go to relax as well as enjoy good food. Located on the first floor of a corner building having a large "wrap around" balcony it is a great place to go for lunch, afternoon coffee or evening meal. The ideal place to secure a table is on the balcony with the view and fresh air, but as this is a very popular restaurant we could only get an inside table. Also available are lounges and large comfortable chairs where patrons sit and enjoy their coffee chatting or playing board games. We had a light lunch of pitta bread and dips at AU$9.95 per plate, a large serve and very nice, the coffee was also good.The menu has many interesting meals on offer.
Located within the Beach Hotel which overlooks the bay, this is a very popular hotel with a great beer garden and plenty of entertainment. The brassiere is to the rear of the hotel and we have eaten here each time we have been in town. The food is good and reasonably priced. The hotel is part owned by Paul Hogan the Australian actor most famous for his part as Mick Dundee in the movie Crocodile Dundee.
Favorite Dish: Beef Penang Curry with beans & rice, spicy and a large serve.
A once in a lifetime opportunity to eat some of the most exquisite food I have ever tasted.

The last time I was in Byron Bay was the Beach Cafe's last day of operation - the ocuncil closed it down as they wanted to use the site for something else.....am absolute travesty!
One for the history books below then (change everything to past tense!).....
The Beach Cafe sits at Clarks Beach just up from the beach ramp. It has been there for years (as this kind of development would get through council now) and has been a bit of a family favourite for Breakfasts! Try and get a table to the back (as you walk in) as these ones have the best beach views. Then order a nice juice or coffee and kick back and enjoy the views.
Just a note, most of the seating is outdoors so plan to be there on a sunny day or you will have to sit in the indoor area - and then you may as well be at any other cafe because you can't see the beach
Favorite Dish: They do a fantastic Eggs Bennedict
A great place to grab a snack or have dinner.
Lots of interesting things to look at while your waiting for your meal to arrive.
Favorite Dish: Finger Food Combo
I liked this dish because i didn't know what i felt like to eat,so this solved my problem.
It was very yummy,with a mix of flavours it was just what i was after.
The food was organic and amazing. Fresh juices and enough food to feed two. Freshly prepared and top notch!!
Favorite Dish: We had a breakfast platter and the buttermilk pancakes with fresh fruit compote. Both were amazing, though there was enough food on each plate to feed two people. On hindsight, we would have ordered one plate and split the food.
Best breakfast we ate in one month traveling in Australia. Top notch.
