I mostly like this place. It falls perfectly into this category I have made in my head of wealthy Sydney types moving into the area and doing what works down there - Full Disclosure - I have no idea if these people are even from Sydney but it is a descriptive tool that I think most people can grasp.

Food was fantastic, started with a few tempura oysters, then a fegola (a mixed seafood dish) and the shitake mushroom risotto. Staff were friendly and helpful and although it isn't a cheap restaurant, the food and wine are well worth a special occasion.

Very nice food, eventually. The variety of the menu and creativity is fantastic but the size of portions is small. The price for this little plates is more expensive than most other places in Byron. They charge high for extra shots and decaf in coffee. The service, though was terrible. It took 20 mins to order a coffee in a... More

We had breakfast here yesterday which was really enjoyable - Corn cakes, egg and bacon rolls and French omelette. Coffee was great - milkshakes were tasteless - service was good at first but became too slow when waiting for 2nd coffees and the bill (annoying when you're ready to get going). Nice appealing place. We sat at tables outside.

Better off going elsewhere in Byron. Had an ok pasta and the worst pannacotta I've ever eaten. The manager was incredibly rude and shouldn't be working in hospitality.

We had a superb meal here with another family. The service was excellent here and the food was amazing. Thoroughly enjoyable. Fully licensed with an extensive wine list. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The mushroom risotto was awesome and so tasty.

We stayed at The Atlantic in Byron Bay over the new year celebrations. Targa is across the road. Despite being full of people all the time, and incredibly hot and humid weather, staff were friendly and found us a table within a short time on the three occasions we turned up mid to late morning. The breakfast menu is excellent... More

I came here with my partner, sister and her husband. My sister was recommended this place from one of her friends who works there. The service was fantastic, friendly staff and the food came out within a reasonable time, considering it was still busy. Very good value and beautiful food. Slightly away from the byron hype on a side street,... More

I was in Byron Bay over the holiday period and after doing some research we decided to check this new restaurant out. First of all, I just want to say how frustrated I am about some reviews posted about bad attitude from staff.. because I've been to too many 5 star restaurants and Targa's service was beyond exceptional. The staff... More
