“Great Wagyu Burger and Cofee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Nice cafe situated in a quieter part of Byron town. The menu is interesting and the Wagyu Burger is very good. Definitely worth a visit.

“Lovely dinner in a relaxed atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

I have had breakfast and lunch here before but this was my first dinner experience at this restaurant. My wife and I had not booked but we were lucky enough that an outside table was available -- advice to future diners is to book, as the place filled up quickly after our 7:30 p.m. arrival. The service provided was that great mixture of casual, friendly and efficient . The menu, while not large, has a good selection of dishes and the wine/drinks list is of a similar construction. Orders for drinks, entrees and mains were taken quickly and without us feeling we were being sped through the process in order to turn the table over.
Our entrees (beef carpaccio and fried whitebait) and drinks arrived soon after. The capaccio was delicious -- fresh, juicy and a lovely contrast in flavors. My only complaint was that there wasn't more. The whitebait was lightly fried and came with a nice aioli and lemon wedge but it just needed something else to lift the dish out of obscurity. Maybe a bit less whitebait and a salad of lightly dressed rocket, chilli and parsley or witlof leaves would do the trick -- nothing extraordinary just a point of difference to give it some punch.
After a well timed break our mains of risotto and baked salmon arrived at the table. The risotto was perfectly cooked and the simple combination of ingredients shone through, one of the best risottos I have tried. The salmon was taken to the upper extremities of what I usually like (i.e. steaks blue and fish seared) but the skill of the chef and the quality of the produce kept this dish in the winners circle. The result was a firm, but still moist, piece of fish surrounded by a wonderful compliment of flavors and textures.
As for the desserts I can offer no comments -- we were to full to continue. Next time, and there will definitely be a next time, I will push through and sample this end of the menu. After 14 years living in The Bay it's great to find a restaurant where we say after a meal "why did we take so long to try it out?". I can't wait to take our kids here as I know they will love the food and Targa seems like a restaurant that would cater to all comers.
