It’s time to whip out your crustacean bibs because Crab Carnival is officially returning to Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. 1st – 30th April with a crabby menu set to surprise and delight Byron Bay locals and visitors alike. Crab Carnival,  celebrates the art of creating, cooking and – of course – chowing down on delectable crab dishes, featuring a specialty menu curated by Balcony Bar & Oyster Co Culinary Director, Chef Sean Connolly.


“Most people make the mistake of thinking that crabs are only a summer delicacy,” Sean Connolly says. “I want to inspire people to incorporate crab into heartier, comfort foods, especially as we enter into the colder months. Fusing crab with Italian cuisine highlights the versatility of this humble crustacean.”
