Forest Byron Bay

Set next to a lush rainforest oasis, Forest Byron Bay celebrates sustainability working hand-in-hand with local farmers, growers and artisans.

Contemporary, social, approachable and distinctly Australian, our restaurant embraces the region’s abundance of stunning ingredients.

Passionately local, over 80% of Forest’s ingredients come from within a three-hour drive of the Resort. The environment also sits close to heart, with the restaurant using only sustainably sourced seafood and free-range proteins. We’re doing our bit to grow, consume and compost with our on-site herb gardens, four beehives and seven Subpods®.

Thirsty? The drinks list features playful, market-driven cocktails. Quintessentially Byron, sip on a Paradiso with Brookie’s Dry Gin, lemon myrtle syrup, garden mint and local passionfruit or try the totally insta-worthy (and slightly OTT) Fairy Dust Martini. Alternatively, peruse the heavenly international wine list with a selection of more than 30 sustainable, organic and biodynamic wines.

Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and just-drinks…The perfect place to feed your soul. Stay a while.

Meet Executive Chef Jordan Staniford

Jordan leads the culinary vision for Forest, the Verandah, Blue and all our events and conferences. His menus highlight the abundance of the Northern Rivers’ region – produce rooted from the soil of our local farmers, sustainably sourced seafood, native ingredients grown in the surrounding rainforests and along the dunes, and a focus on seasonal produce with a twist. Jordan continues to drive Forests’ sustainable and ever-evolving culinary journey.

Our food is designed to be social and approachable, uncomplicated and super tasty using the absolute best produce we can get our hands on,” says Jordan. “The flavours are fresh and playful.”

Jordan’s accomplished career spans Vietnam, the Mediterranean, Sydney, and recently, Byron Bay.
