My wife and I had lunch at the Uptown today and while we had heard very positive comments about the restaurant, it was even better than expected. The lunch menu is obviously more limited than the dinner one but my linguine is definitely one of the best pasta dishes I have had anywhere (including Italy). If you go, don't ignore the fantastic deserts for which the owner/chef is renowned. The coffee was also excellent. There is an extensive wine list and although rather expensive, the range and quality of offerings is surprising. We hope to visit Bangalow for a dinner at this restaurant in the near future.

We had coffee and the apple and cinnamon tart after going to the market. The tart was presented in a long thin slice with clotted cream on the side and dusted each end with icing sugar. It was absolutely delicious! Glad we didnt share! Coffee was very good too. Waitresses smiling and attentive.

We have had Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner here, we find it's very hard to beat as everything is sourced locally from Coopers Shoot tomatoes to Hayters Hill Bacon, tremendous. Lunches are varied and substantial. We have also been for a degustation dinner which for the quality is quite spectacular. The staff at Town we found were excellent, well drilled and really friendly as are the owners Katrina and Carl, both standout chefs. My wife drools over Katrina's cakes and pastries and we have learned she is highly regarded both in Australia and abroad! We never expected a small place like Bangalow to have cuisine of this standard.
Very Impressed.

Celebrating my birthday with daughter who lives nearby and son who specially came over from Hong Kong to give me this birthday present: dinner at Uptown. Living in Europe and having had plenty of marvellous experiences in restaurants there, it was a revelation to experience the atmosphere at Uptown and enjoy the absolutely beautifully presented, and exquisitely tasting food. Small, cosy diningroom with trendy design lighting, friendly and expertly trained waiting staff, and plate after plate of surprises. All kinds of different taste sensations. Excellent wine pairing menu. Thoroughly recommendable restaurant, the best I have eaten in Australia.

We headed into Town for breakfast based solely on the funky sign hanging outside - what a good decision. Breakfast was fantastic and the coffee was good. Initially we had concerns about the service - we asked about a table in the courtyard and were told to go look for ourselves - but the waitress quickly redeemed herself. All agreed breakfast was excellent and they were the best tomatoes I ate whilst in Byron. Definitely would return.
