As a regular visitor to Targa it is great to see consistently good coffee served with a smile. The smashed avocado breakfast is always yummy - one of my favourite spots in Byron.

We have enjoyed a number of meals at Targa over the last few years and were a little concerned to read some recent negative reviews. However we were very pleased to find at our dinner last night that the food was maintaining the quality that we have come to expect. Both our entrees were delicious (salt and pepper prawns and...

The menu is extensive and the service is top notch. A great people watching spot as you take advantage of the corner location with wide open doors to just sit and chill out over a coffee or meal. The breakfast menu is a killer, especially if you like different combinations. I couldn't decide on the smoked trout or mushrooms... so... More

Targa seems to have dropped the ball. We pop in here every few weeks for a breakfast, usually after a big night, and it was always superb. Good crew, good coffee and good food. Came in on Saturday with a few friends and really got let down. The food was good, but it wasn't what we ordered (3 of 4... More

A regular breakfast spot for our family, great menu, I highly recommend the fresh daily muffins cooked on the premises. Good coffee. Great service. Takeaway coffee & muffins available if you're on the run

Having returned to Targa again today because of past good service, food & coffee, I again found the coffee to be excellent. However one staff member let them down. That person was just not interested and bordering on rude. It culminated when serving a cup of tea, spilling some on my table and then walking off without saying a thing.

Some girlfriends and I went to Targa last night and had fabulous food and great service! We were a bit worried as we read a couple of reviews which weren't great, but we were pleasantly surprised! Try the 'Pappardelle Al Ragu' it is so good! We asked for an Affogato which was not on the menu, and it was no... More

We went here for dinner and I had the eggplant melanzane and the gnocchi. The gnocchi was excellent in texture and perfectly seasoned - one of the better gnocchis I've had out. To my tastes though, the eggplant was undercooked - I like it perfectly silky, while the melanzane here was quite firm and a little fibrous. I also prefer... More

I do most of my business meetings here. I also have the odd (lots) of breakies & lunches. The food is great, the coffee is great & I always feel welcome & yet not over serviced. Top spot!

Visited Targa with a girlfriend and our 2 children (both toddlers). I don't think I have ever been to a restaurant where they so clearly do not wish to even attempt to cater for children. There were no highchairs is existence.....(I am pretty sure that this is actually a legal requirement), it was virtually impossible to manoeuvre a pram into... More

targabyronbay, Owner at Targa, responded to this review

Thanks for your review Holly. Unfortunately our premises are tiny (especially begind the scenes) and every nook and cranny is fully utilized. We just can't justify the space for a high chair that is used occasionally. We most certainly do not have a policy of being family unfriendly - in fact a lot of our regular customers are families.
