“Lovely food and drink”

Entire there for breakfast and it was fantastically prepared and it tasted as good as it looked. Coffee was proper Italian style coffee with a strong flavour. Atmosphere was very nice and the staff were very good.

“the best spot in byron bay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

i had the pleasure of staying in byron bay for the week and asked around many friends who knew the area which was the best spot for breakfast dinner and lunch - and the best suggestion i received was targa byron bay.
every day i popped in for either breakfast, lunch or dinner and on every occasion i was greeted with fabulous service and exceptional food. laura on the morning coffees is a delight, lunch is just spot on and the food at dinner was brilliant every time with beautiful wines to accompany.
i highly reccommend targa to anyone in byron bay wanting brilliant food + service every time.

“A winner every time!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

A local Byron resident, I've eaten at Targa a number of times and am never disappointed... the staff, atmosphere and quality of food are right up there.

Most recently, at a breakfast meeting, I tried the breakfast risotto whose flavours I am still dreaming about a week on.

A few weeks back, I went for lunch with some friends and had the lunch special, a veal schnitzel with salad and a glass of wine, all for $20. It was superb. And their Tiramisu is something else entirely.

If you want to be assured a great meal, head to Targa!

“Off the beaten track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

Away from the main tourist scene Targa is one of those restaurants that sea to cater to locals and as is often the case does everything that little bit better than average.

Coffee was incredible, as good as any I've had in Melbourne and the breakfast kept the same standard. Several unusual and imaginative options available as well as the old favourites.

Went back for lunch which at $20 with a glass of wine was incredible value. The beef pie was out of this world.

Will definitely return next time we're in town.

“Laid-back, classy and packed full of gastronomic treats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Having read the great review of Targa in The Good Food Guide, I was pretty keen to check it out and it didn't disappoint! We headed down for a laid back lunch, really enjoyed the atmosphere, the decor, service was good with a steady stream of regulars for whom it seemed like a second home. The food was a real treat - lovely Italian flavours with subtle twists here and there. You can tell the chef is passionate about food and I look forward to my next visit for a lazy lovely lunch.
