The Chef

Our group executive chef, UK born Matt Kemp, earned celebrity chef status after training and working at Michelin star restaurants in the UK and in Sydney, opening several of his own award winning venues, including Restaurant Balzac, working as part of the team that oversaw Australia’s best restaurant in the mid 2000’s, Banc, while heading up his own TV show, plus multiple appearances on Masterchef.

Matt has since moved north to the Tweed Coast and joins us with a simple philosophy to provide fresh, local, and seasonal menus for our guests. Matt’s extensive experience and skill, ensures that your weddings guests will be treated to a food experience unrivalled in our region.

The Menu

Our signature wedding menu is Mediterranean inspired from the acclaimed creators behind the original, Taverna in Kingscliff and is designed to be enjoyed and feasted together. Some of the favourite dishes include Byron Bay Haloumi, slow cooked New England lamb and Bangalow pork belly, with carrot & saffron puree.

For something a little different, we also offer a Mexican menu created by our sister restaurant, Lolita’s Cantina, featuring classic dishes like fish tacos, popcorn chicken and chargrilled chilli corn. We offer shared menus, alternate drop, canapés options and platters plus beverage packages to suit your requirements or custom bar tabs are also available.
