Don't eat out back if temperature over 30.....it's a crammed sweat box and with the slow service to boot - not a great experience. Water dragons in the garden are the only real draw card here as a small fancy named salad roll for $18 is a bit over the top.

Town cafe is great cafe nestled in the heart of Bangalow. It is a local favourite and offers beautiful coffee, breakfast and lunches. From the owners right through to all the staff, the service is friendly and makes you feel comfortable in the cosy surroundings. Highly recommend the deli-style baguettes! A must try if you are in Bangalow. Also should... More

*The Salmon - with Miso, Almond and Garlic was outstanding *Starter of Tomato Consommé was a delight - take a long sniff of the glass it's served in - close your eyes and know you are sitting amongst the tomato vines. I'll be making regular trips from Brisbane for the weekend now just so I can come here again and... More

We were passing through Bangalow and decided to go to Town cafe for lunch. The menu was great as it wasn't the run of the mill type menu. We both settled on the Smoked Salmon Salad with Kipfler Potato, witlof Salad , watercress and a mustard dressing. I have childhood memories of witlof and was quite keen to try it's... More

Town is a brilliant surprise. For those who adore top end, quality food made with the greatest levels of technical capability and underpinned with love this is a must attend. There's a strong commitment to high end flavour and the owners of this little gem walk the talk when it comes to delivering a mind blowing culinary experience. They run... More

Every holiday in Byron Bay we book the degustation dinner at Town Restaurant. We are never disappointed with the quality of the food and the service. Our latest visit was as good as every other, the food is amazing. We highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning on our next trip to Byron.

Sign says wait for service. Stood at that sign like a doofas, ignored by numerous waiters and stared at by the mostly pretentious try harders that were seated. Sat down on bar stool outside. Nothing. Went inside and stood by barista. Told to go and wait at the sign! So glad we gave up waiting. We went to the bangalow... More

Stopped here for a late lunch after escaping the chaos of Byron Bay. The waitress was most helpful in finding us a table in shade out in the back courtyard. Yes, the two lizards do come out, but they're only interested in picking up crumbs and can be easily shooed away! The selection of meals is reasonably compact and due... More

We had the most sophisticated meal on our visit to Uptown Restaurant for New Years Eve dinner, we enjoyed it so much we went back for more 5nights later and in the meantime we had the best coffee , heavenly chocolate brownies and pistachio cake with rose flavoured cream there one morning as...
