This cafe has a take away fish n chip shop at the front with the cafe at the back. The location is deceiving as you may feel you are sitting in the carpark however on the decking the view is not too bad at all....More

My husband and I had lunch here recently. Can thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Seafood Chowder was amazing. There was a slight mixup with our order but it was quickly and professionally sorted.

We all got a mixture of food. I got a fish & chips and was totally happy with it. I will try something different next time as all my friends food looked great to.

Just had a wonderful evening with 4 friends. Friendly staff, fantastic food in particular the fish of the day, and the eggplant steak, but best of all was the honey parfait - delicious! Thank you so much for a lovely evening.

Fishheads Restaurant & Takeaway is located on Main Beach just 20 metres from the Pacific Ocean over looking the mountains and our famous Cape Byron Light House. The restaurant, housed in the original Bathers Pavilion built in 1951, was refurbished most recently in 2003 and with the addition of the outdoor beachfront deck, is now one of Byron's best dining experiences. With a strong focus on fresh seafood and a commitment to sourcing local produce, its an obvious choice for both locals and tourist in the historic coastal town. Come in and let the Fishheads team treat you to an incredible experience by one of the worlds most iconic beaches.
