Am a real coffee whinger - it needs to be just right. Targa tops my list in Byron - consistently excellent with the best muffins too!

Had one of the best meals I have had in a long time! Mushroom carpaccio was to die for and I cant remember having gnocchi that good EVER! We dined on a quiet evening with the service attentive without being in our face. All togerther a great evening

Went back to Targa this year and were very well looked after and cosy on a cold winters night. Good fresh food, interesting wines , service really friendly but don't go if in a rush. Lovely night.

Been several times to Targa, used to be a lot better in their hay day. Last visit was a real dissapointment. Went with three others for dinner during splendour. Waited almost an hour for our dinner, lucky the company was good! My dessert (chocolate tart) was burnt and tasteless. Bit on the expensive side too. Has a cool decor but... More

Came in late, mid-week looking for a meal for a group of 6 of us. The Targo staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We had two courses, wine, and digestifs and everything was excellent. The taleggio souffle was a stand out, as was the gorganzola gnocchi. The staff were also very helpful with gluten-free options. Pricing was more than reasonable,... More

Targa has some soft seating, which is hard to find in minimalist Byron Bay, and the food and coffee are good. Prices are acceptable, and this is a comparatively spacious venue with pleasant décor. But I found the service officious and rude, underneath a veneer of politeness. I would not recommend Targa to singles who care about where they sit,... More

Fantastic breakfast risotto with rhubarb. Great coffee. Across the road of Atlantic Guesthouse where we were staying. Why cook breakfast?

Food and coffee were good but the competition in Byron is serious especially with places like The Roadhouse. Just need to try a tad harder and turn down the air con - far too hot inside on cool days.

The restaurant had a welcoming atmosphere due to the cozy interior and friendly staff. I order the potato gnocchi and it certainly did not disappoint. The quality of the dish was exceptional – well worth a try. Do not be intimidated by the $15 Crème Brule on the dessert menu – it was well worth it! The Crème Brule was... More

I shared a lovely lunch at Targa with my daughter and husband for our wedding anniversary. We had checked out reviews on trip advisor and we're not disappointed. The restaurant has an elegant classy atmosphere whilst still being welcoming and relaxed. A big part of this was the service which struck a perfect balance of attentive and friendly. We are... More
