Fish Heads is in a great beachside location near lots of shops. The kids meals were huge and came with activity bags. The menu has a good range of seafood and some other good steak, lamb and veg options. Veggie sides were large and tasty. The tasting plate was only ok - not enough variety - but the mains were...

As a family we have been to Fish Heads many times. When we were on holiday with our children we would go for my son's birthday as a treat. My wife and I went back on last Saturday night and it was disappointing. The service was good but the food not. I had the trademark fish and chips and the... More

This place is on the beach so hit it up for breakfast or lunch and make the most of its view! I got the ricotta pancakes which were really nice!

We had squid and sardines as entrees and the fish of the day as mains. They were delicious, cooked to perfection in a genuine Mediterranean style. The winter sunset out there was breathtaking. We'll definitely be back!

Great position down by the ocean and car park. Not bad food and ambience. A little bit rustic. OK but not as nice as anticipated.

We did not have any reservations but were provided with a table overlooking the beach. The staff were very friendly; knew the menu well and were able to make recommendations based on our preference of having some thing light and... More

We recently drove from northern NSW to Byron Bay for lunch and had the seafood platter at Fishheads and was the best I have ever had. Fresh as fresh and no chips believe it or not and half a lobster each, mussels, grilled calamari, not fried, fresh oysters and prawns, both cold and hot and natural oysters. It was absolutely...

You know when you're in Byron and you want a great meal thats tasty and good for you. This is the one, fresh pasta and seafood in a pesto and garlic base. Just wonderful with a great viw right by the sea Rather than having a wine, why not have as we had a large cup of fresh coffee

My wife and I had dinner here recently on our Australia trip. I had the Seafood Stew and my wife had the Seafood Spaghetti, both very good. Service was quick and cheerful, couldn't fault the place, recommended.
