Great place to have a break if your a driving the Pacific Highway and are frazzled with the traffic. Great for any other reason. The food was excellent and ably matched the relaxed atmosphere of the Byron Bay region. Fish fresh as.

Definately the place to go away from the bustle of Byron Bay. We popped in for afternoon tea of scones and homemade strawberry jam and were immediately made welcome on walking through the doors...and escorted to our table. Simply cannot discribe how fabulous this open plan restaurant is! We counted 11 staff all making this all happen toiling away on... More

This restaurant was amazing. Came here for dinner on a Saturday night. The hostess noticed I was wearing a short dress and offered to move us closer to the heaters, which I thought was very considerate and attentive. When seated, we were asked if we were celebrating any special occasions. I said it was my partner's birthday and next thing... More

My daughters and I enjoyed a glorious winter's birthday lunch at The Harvest Cafe recently and it was divine. Wonderfully succulent 12 hour braised lamb, crunchy roasted vegetables, delicious wine and relaxing ambience. I would highly recommend it for a family get-together for any occasion.

As soon as I walked into Harvest the ambience was lovely, the staff were friendly and chatty and my breakfast (French toast) was delicious, will be back : - )

We had an excellent lunch with family. The food was great and the service friendly and timely. The food fresh. It wasn't cheap but was reasonable value for the quality of food and drinks we had.

Pricey but good food. Arrogant staff. Poured 2 glasses of champagne over my wife. When asked to dry and clean her clothes they told her to sit inside and the champagne would smell good anyways. No compensation offered. Harvest cafe has become just another Byronian attitudinal place to avoid. Try out 'The Farm' in Ewingsdale just down the road for... More

Locally sourced food served with lots of love. We loved the charcuterie plate and the lamb shoulder for two. We left feeling so full!

Having arrived in between lunch and dinner service, we were offered the Charcuterie. The selection of cured meats and pickles were beautifully presented on a large wooden board resting on thick slices of sourdough. It might have been more enjoyable to have a bowl of olive oil to moisten the bread. There was a small drizzle of oil on the... More
