I didn't realise this cafe is for the health nuts. I ordered the French Toast and it came with all this healthy stuff on top, and i asked for bacon and it was the healthy bacon type which had no oil on it. This wasn't a bad thing, It was just a different experience for me. And it was all 5 star food. The views of the bay was a bonus. The staff were very friendly and the prices good, so couldn't complain.

Hi Samantha,
It's refreshing to hear that someone who stepped outside their normal breakfast comfort zone, actually found choosing something, more healthy from fresh local produce driven menu a rewarding experience. We try to encapsulate what Byron bay is all about and pay homage to the beautiful scenery and people who live and visit Byron for these reasons and our lifestyle.W're so glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you some time for lunch or dinner.

Beautiful venue on a balmy evening overlooking the ocean and watching the sun set. Our table service was wonderful and cheerful. Food was sensational, and I must add a most amazing wine list. Full marks for making a night to remember.

We are so glad you enjoyed your special occasion. While Beach is probably better known as a breakfast and lunch venue. We honestly believe there is nothing better than enjoying a night under the stars watching the sunset over the bay while savouring a beautiful meal with one of our delicious wines and even better with good friends.We hope to see you again soon.

We came here for breakfast. I'm not normally a big coffee drinker, but I had three cappuccinos in an hour and a half they were just perfect. I had musli and yogurt as well and it was delicious. Such a beautiful view as well

We recently chose to have breakfast here to celebrate our anniversary as the location is perfect being right on the beach! however, both food and service were extremely disappointing. When my husband explained that he is allergic to any kind of pork and meat products the waitress seemed to make a problem of it and I noticed that the chefs in the kitchen laughing at the suggestion! The food generally lacks taste and care. Our friend ordered the French Toast, which came garnished with sprouts, 2 thick pieces of bread, which looked dry and no syrup of any kind. Our other order was pretty much a slop of tomatoes, chickpeas and runny eggs. Also coffee luke warm! It feels like too much attitude and not enough care or thought about the food and service.

Thank you for your feedback. I can assure you we do take all dietary requirements very seriously and endeavour to meet every customer's specific requirements. In a town like Byron Bay and a restaurant as busy as ours, we receive special dietary requests like yours every single day. Therefore, this is not something which our floor staff would be unused to and certainly not something the chefs would be amused by. The egg dish you had is a traditional Venetian recipe and is meant to be a wet dish. We are a little confused also about your comment on the French toast, as this not the way we were serving this special. Our French Toast is done with a berry compote, goat cheese cream and spiced nuts with a few decorative sprouts. Is it possible you friend asked for these accompaniments to be left off, as we have never served French toast with just sprouts? We are very surprised and disappointed that you feel we let you down and would sincerely like to know more about your concerns so that we can rectify any internal issues. I can assure you we care deeply and our senior staff, management, chefs and the owners are extremely professional passionate. Therefore while we realise in a busy restaurant with over 45 staff not everything goes right all the time. However we don't take anything or anyone for granted and welcome all feedback (good or bad) and always critique our performance and strive for continuous improvement and respond to every review we receive. If you would be willing to help us by contacting us at enquiries@beachbyronbay.com.au, we would welcome the opportunity to personally contact you to try to find out more about this, in order to apologise and to rectify any issues which may have contributed.

We had lunch here recently and were very disappointed with the limited menu choices, the small serves and pretty average food quality. The quality of the food is not commensurate with the prices charged. Great view but that is what you are paying for.

Hi Barry, we were very surprised and disappointed by your comments. Our food is all made fresh from local produce using traditional northern Italian cooking techniques. We obviously can never please everybody but as you will see from our 4 star rating over 67% of reviewers rate us as good or excellent and we have recently received a number of national food awards. So while we appreciate that what we do is not going to be everybody's cup of tea. we can however assure you that the view is not factored into our prices, which are based purely on the quality of our produce, the calibre of of our staff and the overheads in operating a large restaurant with a landmark location, in a town where property and rental prices are some of the highest in the country. We are very sorry you were disappointed but with 180 other restaurants and cafes in Byron, there is sure to be something for everyone and we hope you find something you personally enjoy.
