Our Menu

Ancora couples and their guests can enjoy a mouth-watering food and beverage selection.

The menu draws inspiration from the much-loved authentic Greek dishes created for iconic restaurant, Taverna. Packed with distinct Mediterranean flavours and with a focus on share style dining, the gourmet menu options include locally sourced seafood, slow cooked lamb and our famous Byron Bay haloumi.
