We had a very nice meal and good service. We enjoyed the openness of the restaurant and listening to a young musician playing guitar and singing. Great atmosphere.

Annoying when you stop somewhere because you like their specials board, only to find out they'd run out. Oh well.

breakfast... bacon was so black and overcooked it was inedible. asked for soft poached eggs and they came out hard. coffee order was mucked up and not too big a stress but slightly bizarre, the avocado was just cut in half and still in its skin so I had to do the work - no worries but just a bit...

We ate here this evening and the food was delicious. I had the fillet steak burger and it was amazing. A massive piece of steak with very tasty homemade wedges. My partner had Salmon which looked great too. At the same time a guy called Garret Kato was playing some brilliant music. The waiter was also very helpful and friendly.... More

I'm a fussy breakfast diner. The coffee, if drinkable at all, is rarely how you wanted it. You want your coffee with your food - it turns up 10 minutes before.The toast is either warm bread or burnt to a crisp. What a surprise this gem in Byron Bay is. I wanted avocado & tomato on toast - not on... More

We went to Mokha for diner and to listen to some local music. The atmosphere is great with mix of indoor and outdoor dining, nice lighting and live music, Luke Morris was playing and he was great, even brought his CD. The service was good and attentive throughout the evening. The only thing that spoiled our night was the food,... More

I'm a local in Byron and have been to Mokha on a few occasions as my friends love it here, but despite trying a few things on the menu now I've been repeatedly disappointed. The atmosphere is great, the service friendly (mostly) but the food really is under par for the prices being charged here. A "special" of dry snapper... More

In Byron Bay last weekend we decided to have dinner at Mokha after driving by and noticing what a great atmosphere there was oozing from within: tables full, nice lighting, a mix of outdoor & indoor seating and a guy singing & playing the guitar (Kyle Lionhart did a fabulous rendition of Hallelujah while we were there). The service is... More

We've had brekkie here a few times, and always been happy. It's a relaxed, casual atmosphere and the coffee's good. Yesterday we had a very long wait - I think they lost our order - and not much apology. Luckily we weren't in a hurry to be anywhere. But when the bill came they'd charged us half for my Eggs...
