“Amazing service even in a blackout!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Freak storm hit byron bay at 7:00pm, causing a blackout, but the owners put on candlelight and kept serving regardless, with amazing candor! Great food, great night, and great atmosphere despite the obvious challenges!

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Arrived without a reservation and were fitted into the last table available. Ordered the bugs with pasta and the risotto verde. Both were simply superb. Fairly small wine list.

“Very good on a busy night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Dined with 5 others & enjoyed our experience.

Very busy but the staff seemed to cope well & we were greeted and served throughout with smiles.

Had shared entree platters and mains each. Can only speak for my own steak which was cooked as requested and was really tasty.

All in all a very good night.

“Bad Attitude”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

We are regular visitors to Byron Bay and dropped in to Targa for breakfast. Service was lazy, slow and you just felt unwelcome. Fix the vibe and it would be great. You just got the feeling that the place is all about dinner and they did breakfast under sufferance.
