Wonderful service

We recently enjoyed a birthday celebration in a large group. The staff coped admirably with the vagaries of dealing with the management of serving us. They were attentive and full of good humour to reflect the mood of the night. Our food was simple and good without being outstanding. An... read more

Could not fault this restaurant. Great menu, beautifully presented. Good wine list. We all enjoyed every dish: Entrees, Mains, and Dessert.

I recently dined here and loved every second of the experience! Next to the incredibly noisy and busy Beach Hotel, we were guided to the loveliest banquet in the outdoor area - felt like we were a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of a busy sunday night in Byron Bay. Staff were gorgeous, helpful and friendly. The... More

Wanted a nice out at a more upmarket restaurant in Byron Ban with my brother and husband. We originally booked in for the Friday night but my brother had his car break down so we changed it at the last minute, the staff were very helpful and straight away switched us to Saturday night without a single problem. This was... More

In a town full of casual eating places pitched at a younger clientele, Italian at the Pacific was a welcome change. Recommended by our beach house, the first night we wanted to go was booked out for a private function, so it pays to check. The night we went was quiet, and service was friendly and attentive.

We go to Byron Bay frequently, and for a sure thing great dining experience, we go to Italian at the Pacific. The menu offers lots of choice, and there are always blackboard specials so regulars like us can try something different each time. The staff stand out head and shoulders above the usual for Byron Bay dining establishments. Well presented... More

We shared the ravioli in burnt sage butter and the barramundi with crab, corn and fregola. Cooked and presented beautifully and tasted wonderful. The selection of wines was varied and generous and...
