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.

“Happy hour at the balcony.”

We stayed for happy hour, food was beautiful and that was happy hour prices too. The lychee cocktails were gorgeous. Service a bit on the slow side because they were busy, but fantastic.

This place was recommended to us by Veronica from Aaman and Cinta Villas. My partner and I went for there for my 30th birthday dinner and I'd have to say it was one of the best meals I've had in all my 30 years! Delicious tapas (the haloumi was TO DIE FOR), nice wine, great vibe, excellent service. Loved it all. Thanks for a great dining experience. Kate and Shaun
