Rae's on Watego's Restaurant

8 Marine Parade
Cape Byron State Conservation Park
Byron Bay, New South Wales, 2841, Australia
TEL: 61-2-6685-5366

Perched on Watego Beach in Cape Byron State Conservation Park, this alfresco seafood café with prime ocean views is the flagship restaurant for Rae’s on Watego's Hotel. The terrace has the best seating, with rows of white linen-tables overlooking the tree-lined beach. Indoor booths look onto the patio through tall glass doors. The menu changes according to the daily catch, but frequently includes whole baby snapper in butter and capers, as well as blackened Moreton Bay Bugs (flathead lobsters) flavored with lemongrass.

Insider Tip:

After breakfast or lunch, walk across the lawn to Watego Beach, a popular spot for local longboard surfers who ride the northerly swells. Watch also for pods of dolphins and migrating whales.
