One of the prettiest restaurants in Byron Bay, Forest is located in Crystalbrook hotel on the edge of a sprawling rainforest. It doesn't get more romantic than this, so bring your beau and grab a seat in the leafy terrace or the sleek dining room for ultimate brownie points. Together, you can take in the awe-inspiring sights of the oasis while you feast.

Sustainability lies at the heart of Forest, turning local, seasonal ingredients into beautiful plates of grub. Pop by in the morning to indulge in one of their hearty breakfast plates or vitamin-rich smoothies, or make your way over later in the day to dig into their menu of small plates and delicious mains. Standout plates include the Ranger’s Valley pasture fed striploin, served with white bean puree, pickled onion and chimichurri.

The bartenders here are masters of mixes, preparing signatures such as Down the Forest Path, which features Byron house gin, basil and mint shrub, lemon, and Capi lemon and basil soda – the perfect tipple to cool you off on a hot day. If you’d prefer a glass of vino, you’re in luck as the drinks list features an ample selection of international wines.
