About Us


Perched atop the buzzing Byron streets and just meters back form legendary main beach, Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. evokes the easy going surf culture that Byron Bay is famous for. Headed up by award winning Executive Chef & Owner Sean Connolly, the menu boasts simple, honest, seasonal food from locally sourced and sustainable suppliers.
You can expect to see bivalve fans slurping freshly shucked oysters and tucking into creative share plates whilst enjoying signature cocktails and relaxing in the afternoon sun. With décor suggestive of a seaside beach house, Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. is host to the only private dining room in Byron Bay. Why not celebrate your next event or special occasion with us!


“Our food is approachable, grown up and easy going. The best quality done simply. We are on the ocean so it makes sense to be celebrating great seafood, our oyster bar offers over 30 Australian varieties of freshly shucked oysters, our meats are cooked on the bone or in the shell, we are passionate about using local suppliers and supporting Australian growers.”
– Executive Chef, Sean Connolly
