“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

We visited here with a large group and had a set menu. It was excellent. The food is original Italian and contemporary twists as well. The salmon was gorgeous as was the duck! Lovely ambience. I would highly recommend.

“Superb food and service in tranquil beach setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

The flip side of a beachfront location in Byron could be the enormously popular and potentially noisy next door Beach Front Hotel, however this proved not to be an issue, even with 300 hungry patrons. The Pacific is suitably set back and very private once inside. The initial meet and greet could be improved as you have to walk past outside diners to get to the restaurant manager but table service was exemplary - think friendly fine dining. The food was fresh, delicious and the right size - substantial enough. Obviously this place is popular with the locals as there were plenty of birthday and leaving do celebrations, which gave it a nice buzzy vibe without detracting from the food or service. Prices are Sydney comparable which might seem expensive but the quality was here. I'd highly recommend a dinner here.

“Best place to eat on the East Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

I've eaten in quite a few restaurants up and down the East Coast and this has to top the leaderboard.

The food was exquisite - the pork belly and lamb both melt in your mouth, the arancini was also delicious and the pumpkin salad.

The service was fantastic and the feel and decor in the restaurant was spot on. We went on a Tuesday and it was full so many sure you book in advance.

Well worth a visit if you get a chance.

“Overpriced and didnt meet expectations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Of all the restaurants I have dined at in Byron this was the let down. Food sounds delicious on the menu but doesnt meet expectations. My husband had the lamb shank lasagne at $31 it was poor to say the least, just a bowl full of meat with no sauce and bland. Very overpriced meals for what you get similar to pub meals. The only savior was the service and the atmosphere
