Huge amount of food for 2 people! Good fish and chips. Grab a beer from the offy, head to fish heads, pick up a share box and head to the beach for sunset!

A taxi driver told us its the best seafood in town and it sure was! Lovely staff and central location just off the water. Dined in and were busy so had a little bit of a wait but was 100% worth it

Lovely fresh seafood at a reasonable price. I had the sizzling prawns and seafood linguine and my partner had the salt n Peper squid and seafood mix. Both were perfectly cooked and service was timely and friendly. Very happy. Planning our return visit next week.

Fishheads Restaurant & Takeaway is located on Main Beach just 20 metres from the Pacific Ocean over looking the mountains and our famous Cape Byron Light House. The restaurant, housed in the original Bathers Pavilion built in 1951, was refurbished most recently in 2003 and with the addition of the outdoor beachfront deck, is now one of Byron's best dining experiences. With a strong focus on fresh seafood and a commitment to sourcing local produce, its an obvious choice for both locals and tourist in the historic coastal town. Come in and let the Fishheads team treat you to an incredible experience by one of the worlds most iconic beaches.
