Thanks Fisheads for a fantastic big breakfast to kick start our day. It was extremely delicious, especially the bacon and the mushrooms. The milkshakes were the 'icing' on the cake!!

Service was pretty much non existent, but the food I ate made up for it. I had the house made musli with pineapple yoghurt and it was so yummy. Couldn't get a better location or view - perfect for brekky

Fishheads Restaurant & Takeaway is located on Main Beach just 20 metres from the Pacific Ocean over looking the mountains and our famous Cape Byron Light House. The restaurant, housed in the original Bathers Pavilion built in 1951, was refurbished most recently in 2003 and with the addition of the outdoor beachfront deck, is now one of Byron's best dining experiences. With a strong focus on fresh seafood and a commitment to sourcing local produce, its an obvious choice for both locals and tourist in the historic coastal town. Come in and let the Fishheads team treat you to an incredible experience by one of the worlds most iconic beaches.
