Description: Meters back from legendary main beach, Balcony Bar & Oyster Co sits perched high above the hustle and bustle of Byron Bays busy streets. This heritage listed building is reminiscent of a seaside beach house. The signature wrap around deck captures the setting sun and is the perfect place to tuck into some freshly shucked oysters with an icy cold beer or a glass or rose. Executive Chef Sean Connolly has prepared a menu reflecting his signature style of cooking; simple, approachable and where possible on the bone or in the shell, allowing the produce to speak for itself. Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. exudes a neighbourhood spot where you can drop by anytime for a drink with friends and a few oysters or small plates.

A good restaurant for watching the world go by.
Young,polite staff who liked to chat.
Service a little low,but the food was worth waiting for.
Salt and pepper squid as a starter were great.
Our steaks were the best we have ever had.
Cooked to perfection.
Objected to all the reasonably priced red wines being sold out.
Wine was expensive,was almost tempted to go downstairs to the liquor store and buy my own
as the restaurant should cater for all budgets.
All said,an enjoyable experience.

Last day in Byron and just wanted to have a cocktail before leaving, placed myself on a stool on the outdoor balcony over looking the roundabout below and relaxed enjoying the passing street crowds, loved the wood finishes country style interior, service was a bit all over the place as no one was sure who was serving me so hope they are quicker when it comes to providing service for people who are planning to have a meal.
But overall I enjoy sitting in a casual environment on the outdoor balcony.

We went in last night for a couple of drinks - it certainly looks nice. We ordered a red wine and a bottle of ginger beer (not elaborate cocktails) and 15 minutes later, having still not received our drinks, we decided to leave.

The balcony itself is the obvious highlight of this place - great birds-eye view of the main junction in town, it's a perfect place to watch the world go by while in the company of good friends (or maybe just a good martini!). At dusk, a perfect space to enjoy a beverage, maybe tapas, and the staff were exceptionally lovely the last time I visited...

Friendly service, reasonable food but had been eggs Benedict before. Cheese eggs are very cheesey! A little pricey for breakfast. Good people watching place though right in the hard of the Main Street.
