A recent trip to see friends on the Gold Coast sharpened my appreciation for just how lucky we in Byron. If you like Irish pubs, Bavarian restaurants and food courts try the Goldie: ‘How good is it?’, as our PM might say, philausophically.
Thank goodness in Byron I can just wander off the Main Beach and soak up the Byron vibe above Jonson St, with a bit of a sea breeze and a beer, or a cocktail like the Amaretto Sour, in the stylish and very relaxed interior of a place like Loft Byron Bay.
If you were on holidays it would be the perfect place to settle in for the afternoon and sample the really excellent cocktail and wine list. As it was, I contented myself with the Spring Pea Risotto – mint pesto, Byron Bay mozzarella and garlic croutons this time. But I’ll be back!
