Mezza at The Point is right by the river in Ballina and is a classy place with fantastic views over the water. Owners Anne and Andrew took over in September last year and have turned what was formerly known as The Point into a stylish new lounge bar and dining venue.

Guests are blown away by the stunning view from the restaurant as soon as they enter, the designers have really made the most of their location.

There are plenty of options to sit back, relax and enjoy a casual but elegant dining experience, whether you are holding a family get-together, catching up with friends, or having a business lunch.

Their vision was to create a premiere bar and dining venue in Ballina, serving guests a mix of tapas and share plates inspired by owner Andrew’s Lebanese background, hence the name, Mezza, which traditionally means ‘to share’.

But the menu also offers the best in local seafood, and delicious pastas, salads and desserts to die for.  With just a hint of flavours from the Middle East and the Mediterranean, Mezza at the Point offers a unique dining experience in the Northern Rivers.

The venue also caters for weddings, functions and group bookings. At the time of writing, residents of Greater Sydney have just been freed to travel to our region, and owners Anne and Andrew are expecting a busy summer period with people travelling to the area from interstate, as well as looking forward to the restrictions easing that have caused so many issues for the hospitality industry. 

‘It has been hard finding qualified and experienced staff, and keeping our business afloat during this period,’ say Anne and Andrew, ‘so we are really excited about getting our business back to normal and to serve all our loyal customers and visitors again.’

‘We have to have a strict booking system to meet capacity requirements, so people are encouraged to book online or call ahead in advance. We are getting quite a lot of enquiries at present from workplaces booking their end-of-year celebrations and also enquiries for Christmas lunch’. So, book early people!

Mezza at The Point are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day from 8am until late, which means they are open for locals and visitors to get a meal or a coffee after 3pm, when many other venues are shut. 

There’s also a great vibe on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with happy hour from 3–6pm and live music. Ask a local, they’ll confirm Mezza has become known for fabulous cocktails and tapas and it’s a great new dining and entertainment venue in the area.
