So I was taken here for lunch today and ordered from the takeaway section of the restaurant, another overpriced meal where you are probably paying for the location more than the food. Had the fish and calamari and chips. I opted for crumbed and everything about it was average. Portion size was adequate for the fish but the calamari could've... More

Highly recommend the bucket of king prawns and the sashimi plate. With a cold bottle of wine and a view of the beach, it was the perfect lunch spot.

overpriced and over cooked, is the only way I can describe this restaurant. The fish was over cooked but just about edible, the fries were cheep frozen- I have had better at mc Donald's when I have taken the Grandkids there. Service left a lot to be desired, all in all the view was fantastic but the restaurant was poor.

My lemon sole was dreadful, over cooked and for that I had to wait for longer than an hour. It was also covered in far too much butter and fried croutons and no veggies or salad in sight. My wife had seared tuna, which was obviously microwaved!! It looked awful and was inedible. The staff and especially the charming manager... More

As long time Byron residents we unfortunately took UK friends to Fishheads We waited nearly 1 1/4 hours for our meals. Other nearby tables were served twice. The Sole was inedible, the Tuna looked ghostly, as though it had experienced a few moments in the microwave. The Barra was less than average and although the Pork Belly tasted superb, the... More

BEST seafood I have ever had hands down ( mixed grill) my three kids loved the kids menu and my normally fussy hubby loved the fish and chips. Also the cocktails are divine especially the Red Vette... More

...... at least for this year. We have been coming to Byron for years and years. One of our laments has been how a beach so great can not produce decent takeaway fish and chips close by! We have tried them all. And we only eat takeaway fish and chips once a year! This year we cracked it. The fish... More

I am a chef and even when I'm not to impressed I still don't say anything but on this occasion I am going to. My girlfriend loved her burger and chips but I got the mixed grill and the whole dish was a major let down the calamari and bugs were undercooked both had raw flesh. And the rest was... More

Like everything you get what you pay for, and the food here was a little expensive but was probably our best meal so far in Byron Bay, I had the Fish pie, which arrives as a mini pie made for an individual in its own dish with a creamy onion sauce, fish and veggies, was outstanding as was the eye...
