The Best Byron Bay Restaurants for Groups and Events
Set next to a lush rainforest oasis, Forest Byron Bay celebrates sustainability working hand-in-hand with local farmers, growers and artisans. Contemporary, social, approachable and distinctly Australian, our restaurant embraces the region’s abundance of stunning ingredients. Passionately local, over 80% of Forest’s ingredients come from within a three-hour drive of the Resort. The environment also sits close to heart, with the restaurant using only sustainably sourced seafood and free-range proteins. We’re doing our bit to grow, consume and compost with our on-site herb gardens, four beehives and seven Subpods®. Dishes range from snacky - char-grilled local peppers, guindilla chilli and whipped local macadamia - to more substantial, like Bangalow Sweet Pork with West Australian truffle.
