Mullum Fire and Rescue team needs you

It’s a rare opportunity to join the Mullumbimby 388 Fire Station Fire and Rescue team with recruitment only taking place every four to five years.

After nine years building a keen following in Lennox Head, the local Beef & Beach restaurant has opened a second offering in Byron at Mercato. At last a Byron steakhouse complete with all the menu favourites and service of the original! 

They specialise in fresh seafood and have an amazing array of steaks and meats, plus garnishes. For starters try an endless selection of share plates including oysters, sashimi, ceviche, antipasto, and arancini, all of which are served all day. The menu is designed to please all styles of diners, which makes it very attractive to large groups and families.

With the cinemas right next door they can fit you in for a very quick meal and beverage, just let them know when you arrive and they will make it happen.

Beef & Beach cooks on charcoal in a Josper, which originated in Spain. This is where their special flavour comes from – using no electricity or gas, the charcoal heats the heavy steel oven up to 500 degrees celsius. This allows the large variety of meats on the menu to be sealed very quickly and cooked for a shorter time, keeping in all the moisture, and making the food super juicy. The rendering fats drip onto the charcoal creating delicious smoky flavours that permeate up into the meat. 

Restaurant manager Bryn Atkins has a passion for top-notch or hard-to-find spirits and liqueurs. The cocktail list is enticing, as it should be in Byron, with 150 or so options. ‘I love the design by the amazing local Nyree Mckenzie, which is 1950s-inspired with a coastal softness to it,’ says Bryn. ‘Classy but casual, the space oozes comfort – we love the end result. The views are great; one balcony sits high over Jonson St looking in all directions with the other looking north right along Jonson St, the perfect place to people watch.’

Large groups & kids welcome 

Open: 7 days a week from 11.30am till late (11–12 midnight) with food available all day.
Reservations preferred:
