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

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. Many... More

We had a delightful evening. Staff were attentive without being intrusive. We were informed that they were sold out of certain items on the menu but then informed a few min later that a customer had changed their mind and that an entree of soufflé was available and a main course of sirloin. We were delighted as I wanted the... More

Across the road from Atlantic where I was staying, so very convenient for breakfast and coffee before going to work. Lovely breakfast on all days I visited here - porridge with fresh strawberries was really lovely, and the chorizo and eggs on another day with sourdough was also very yummy. Nice, friendly place and excellent coffee with a barista who... More

We've been here a couple of times and it's a solid reliable choice in Byron. I recommend the duck ragoo for the main. The wine selection is small but well selected. This place is great with a large group. Definitely worth a visit especially mid week.
