Good food cooked slowly with love to be enjoyed with beautiful wine

You’ll need multiple visits to experience the myriad of new and renewed items on Barrio’s menu.

The first cab off the rank is a re-introduction of beloved “Slinging Plates”. If you haven’t experienced this community favourite, now is your chance with popular local and visiting chefs on the lineup for this year. In addition to Slinging Plates, Barrio will reanimate the popular Aperitivo Hour in the courtyard, featuring aperitivo-style cocktails designed to whet the appetite, hors d’oeuvres, and plates that include freshly shucked oysters, olives, skewered seafood, and meats over coal. Join them Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons between 3pm and 5pm to see what all the fuss is about

Barrio is kicking off these events in a big way on the 15th of April (save the date) with Chef Dave Verheul of Embla Melbourne making a very special pilgrimage to the Bay to sling some one-off plates your way. The cocktails on the night will showcase Dave’s own “Saison Vermouth”, to feature heavily in Aperitivo Hour drinks thereafter. This event will sell out fast – you can sign up for first access via Barrio’s Instagram – @barriobyronbay, where you will soon find a surprise announcement about the event.

This week sees the launch of an all-new breakfast menu, curated by visionary Chef Jude –
@judehughesley – as well as new cabinet salads that are updated weekly. Owing to overwhelming demand, the restaurant is also extending trading hours to seven days a week with an additional evening service on Wednesdays. Stay tuned for details of their Sunday roast with a seafood focus, to be released via Instagram.

In keeping with their strong sustainability focus, Barrio has switched to Greenline cleaning products, which are 100 per cent environmentally friendly, green-tick-certified, and food-safe. They’ve also teamed up with local legends, the Byron Rangers, to establish a new community initiative providing compost to local farms. Nothing is wasted at Barrio – even bones and shells are reduced to ash and passed on to the Rangers.

Located in the Habitat community development in Byron Bay’s Arts & Industry Estate, Barrio’s approach to dining is informal yet professional, with a strong focus on using the best quality produce available to complement the Middle Eastern-inspired fare.
