A little bit of vintage ambiance, an Italian menu soaked in old world charm, fancy cocktails and a decadent wine list, Pixie Food and Wine effortlessly exudes romance.

Make eyes at each other over a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar, snuggle into a booth for Italian dishes that are both beautiful and delicious and talk the night away. With classic, old-school roots, Pixie is a modern date night icon.

4) Moonlight Grill and Wine Bar

Bay Lane, Byron Bay | Dinner

Moonlight Grill and Wine Bar is coloured for the velvety darkness of the midnight sky. Dramatic blacks accented only by subtle splashes of white from the bar and the light of the moon set the scene.

Steeped in classical Japanese cuisine the menu is brought into the present with respect and punch. Dishes are perfectly complemented by elevated cocktails, Japanese whiskies and biodynamic wines chosen according to the luna cycle.

5) No Bones

11 Fletcher Street | Dinner 

No Bones is a plant-based restaurant that revisits the way we think about our food. Fit for vegans and carnivores alike, this popular eatery was created with a vision of bringing people together over good food.

Surrounded by the tiny lights and candles of the courtyard, indulge in luxurious flavours that fill the air. Contribute to a better earth with every bite. As you sit together and sip on delicious cocktails, it’s easy to feel that you’re part of something special.

6) Rae’s on Wategos

6/8 Marine Parade, Byron Bay | Lunch and Dinner

An iconic Byron Bay restaurant, the Dining Room at Rae’s on Wategos is white-washed walls, cosy booths and romantic lighting.

A sexy cocktail list and curated wine menu are designed to complement cuisine that is both decadent and refined. It feels like a little escape to the Mediterranean with a heartbeat that’s all Byron Bay.

Harvest Newrybar

7) Harvest Restaurant, Newrybar

18-22 Old Pacific Highway, Newrybar | Lunch and Dinner (Breakfast at Harvest Deli)

The sublime and surprising combine beautifully in this culinary experience worth leaving Byron Bay for.

Showcasing native, wild and foraged ingredients and the best local produce, Harvest’s talented chefs create dining experiences designed to delight and inspire, augmented by their expert sommelier and mixologist.

8) The Hut

471 Friday Hut Road, Possum Creek | Lunch

More than one hundred years ago, this building was lined with school desks and slate boards. Today, the windows of The Hut open onto a sprawling verandah and green hinterland views, while inside intimate tables create date night conversation and passionate chefs live out the Mediterranean way of life through their cuisine.

9) Tweed River House | Lunch and Dinner

131 River Street, South Murwillumbah | Lunch and Dinner

A grand verandah, lush draping curtains and endless mountain views – this is a dramatic, highly romantic stage, inspired by Raffles in Singapore and well worth the 50 minute sight-seeing drive from Elements.

Have a pre-dinner cocktail at the lawn bar then start with the confit duck, followed by the wild caught fish and don’t forget a little something sweet. We love the profiteroles. Newly hatted (and deservedly so), Tweed River House’s French-inspired menu combines classic traditions and vibrant seasonal flavours.

10) Shelter

41 Pacific Parade, Lennox Head | Lunch and Dinner

Driven by the concept of providing a shelter in a storm, Shelter offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere, stunning ocean views and high calibre cuisine in the seaside town of Lennox Head.

Shelter has strong partnerships with local growers and a commitment to sustainability that can be tasted in its seasonal menu. There’s a feeling of being a local when you eat here and a definite sense of place thanks to its laidback Lennox Head ambience. Fresh white and warm timber adds a little luxury to this seaside dining experience.

11) Fish & Chips and Picnics

Sometimes, the best restaurants are the ones you create for yourself. Set on the seafront in Byron Bay, riverside in Brunswick Heads or under a tree on a farm, these romantic dinners come served in newspaper and picnic baskets.

The best fish and chips are found at Fishmongers in Byron Bay and Hoppers in Brunswick Heads. Our picnic spot of choice is The Farm where you pre-order your basket then stroll the grounds, looking for a beautiful place to throw the picnic rug.

Go back to basics with the one you love.
