    Great setting and decoration; attentive and friendly staff and great food. Some creative thoughts on the menu, not all of which worked though(the pea added to avocado for guacamole Really didn’t work and was a bit tasteless). Only downside was noisy kids at nearby table. I’d definitely go back.

    Great restaurant - the atmosphere was very good even with social distancing. Suited our family perfectly. The food options also made it very easy to select something we were all happy with.

    Balcony is a nice restaurant with lovely siting... on the.... balcony of an old corner building (an old pub?). The setting and the atmosphere was lovely., appropriately for people who want to feel Byron Bay vibe but are no longer 25 and have been wearing shoes for last 20 years. Unfortunately since we were there in the middle of winter we were a bit cold despite the heating. Despite best efforts of the staff we could not be moved inside as there was no free table there. Staff was very helpful and nice. My vegetarian dish was great, dish from kid’s menu was very nice too. Unfortunately two other dishes (including a stake) were cold when they arrived at the table. So go there for a vibe, ability to watch all that is happening on the street and acceptable but not perfect food.

    The atmosphere is nice. Food is alright, drinks were good. The stuff was helpful, but seemed very very busy. It took a while (30min) before they took our order.

    The food was excellent and the service provided by Maggie just made the evening tops for both of us. Maggie went over and above to take care of everything. Had a great night!

    Great food, drinks and vibe. Feels like you are being rushed a bit - that's the only comment i would make... I get that the tables need to turnover but you are reminded several times over the course of the meal about time...

    amazing food, service struggled, exceptional loud music to the point the service staff had to point to menu items as they couldn’t hear the orders. This was not only out table but a few around us facing the same challenge.

    The food was amazing - very impressed! Service however could have been improved. Staff were lovely, but were way too busy to give us proper attention. Needed more servers to cater for the mass of patrons.

    We were seated indoors so was a little bit stuffy. We knew this as we were told there would be a wedding on the balcony. We have been before and definitely a balcony table is much better than being inside.

    We were greeted warmly and shown to our table and given menus. We ordered drinks with our young waiter and browsed the menu. We were given glasses but no water, our cocktails came and our waiter drop them and left to have a chat to his work collegue by the till about 2metres from our table. He had no interest in taking our food order and when we finally ordered he didn't know the menu! Poor service but food was nice. Not worth the money in my opinion.

    Atmosphere and service was good but food quality was very average to poor. Only one of us finished our dish. The linguini has way to much cream and the burger was very pink (it was advertised as a little pink and was badly shaped almost like a squashed ball making it really awkward to eat. I was also really looking forward to the duck fat chips but they were hard to distinguish from normal chips in flavour. Overall food quality significantly down on a year ago when I last visited.
