This was one of the best breakfasts Ive had. All of our meals were fantastic. Service was great and views over main beach and Belongil Beach are gorgeous. Would definitely return.

While passing through by Byron Bay we dined at Fish Heads. I must say the staff were very accommodating. While dinner service commenced at 6 PM and we arrived at 5:30 PM and were nevertheless welcomed. As it was an early meal and we were on the road, the fish and chips looked appealing. Both the fish and the chips... More

Chose this place for the nice location at the front and the menu looked good. Did feel the menu quite pricey for lunch though. I had the barramundi which was delicious though the portion was quite small. My husband had the seafood pasta which he loved. Service friendly.

Fish Heads was what I was expecting as far as the location of the restaurant (more like a cafe when dining during the day), you do overlook the busy car park, but for the most part, it is easy to overlook it and breathe in the casual beachy atmosphere and aqua blue ocean. The menu isn't vast, though offers a... More

We popped in here for breakfast on a beautiful sunny morning and just spent an hour taking in the scenery of the bay. The food was very good and plenty of choice, we followed up with a walk alone the beach, just a perfect start to the day.

Our order consisted of a toasted cheese sandwich, a toasted ham sandwich, a walnut and apricot muffin and coffees. The toasted cheese sandwich, which was for a child, presented as an open grilled salty cheese (Maybe parmesan?) on turkish bread with butter on the side (reason for that unknown). My son ate a square of it and clearly told me... More

We went here one evening and were seated promptly. I opted for the fish mixed grill and my husband chose the lemon sole. We had a couple of delightfully chilled and crisp glasses of white wine to go with it. When it came my husband's lemon sole turned out to be massive and my fish mixed grill was absolutely stunning.... More
