There were 14 of us. A big party. We booked a week in advance, so the restaurant should have been aware, yet!
The orders were taken for drinks, the gin and tonic was watery, missing any amount of gin. They were replaced when we complained. A good gesture, but an expensive restaurant should not have served those in the first place.
The food orders were taken. And after half an hour the first of the entrees started to come. My wife was served a dish that looked like a terrine, but no she was assured by the waitress that it was the tuna she ordered. So she ate some and some of us helped with the rest. Some more entrees arrived and finally the waitress realized her mistake and owned up the my wife received the wrong dish. The tuna took some time to arrive by which time some of the mains started to come out. My barramundi was outstanding. The beef cheek someone else had was also fantastic, but two of our party just didn't get their food. We waited and waited, asked where those last two dishes were. About 15-20 minutes after everyone else had their food the last two arrived. By then we were over the whole meal. They realized we were not happy and tried to compensate with three free tiramisu. A nice gesture, but we won't return.

My husband and I were both raised in Byron so we have seen a lot of restaurants come and go but Italian at the pacific will be one to stay, it can't be beaten for service, food, atmosphere, location and price. We have been here countless times and each time we walk out feeling so happy and relaxed, it just has the best atmosphere and the food is to die for!

Stayed in Byron for a few days in March and our night in the Italian at the Pacific was the stand out event. From the entrees thru to the main fish course, everything was just perfect, complemented by a very nice wine list too. This is a great restaurant to go an enjoy yourself at - good food, good friendly & efficient service and no pretentious stuffiness. It is just a great place to wine & dine. Can't wait to go back!

Visited Byron Bay with my wife and we saw the Echo newspaper( local paper) advertising that the Italian at the pacific had a $40 special on Monday and Tuesday nights at the moment so we treated ourselves

The food, was exceptional. And although they seemed quite busy for a Monday we didn't wait too long for our wines or food.

The deal is an entree/main or main/dessert from the menu. My wife loved her kingfish entree and hearty lamb rump. I had the market fish with gnocchi which was so so tasty. The dessert was to die , chocolate custard , peanut butter biscuit and bananna ice cream . The meals were amazing but it was such a bargain with the $40 deal. When back in Byron we will definitely drop in .
