fig tree Grounds
The restaurant itself is located in the original farmhouse, perched on a hill top in the secluded area of Ewingsdale, Byron Bay.
Venture out past the grapevines, olive grove and orchard to behold the beauty of the venues most iconic feature – it’s majestic 150-year-old fig tree, framing sweeping hinterland to ocean views all the way out to the Byron Bay Lighthouse.
Words simply can’t do Fig Tree Restaurant justice. It’s something you just have to experience for yourself.
Take a Stroll
Take a stroll through our beautiful olive grove, which takes pride at the top of a sunny, pebbled alcove with stunning vistas across the Eastern Seas.
Rich in history, some of our cherished olive trees are over 40 years old. This is such a beautiful place to relax and enjoy.
Garden to Table Ethos
Grown & Gathered
Our garden was first planted in 1981 and has been the heart and soul of the Fig Tree Restaurant ever since.
Our ingredients are hand-picked from our thriving veggie, herb, edible flower and citrus garden - one pretty incredible backyard that we tend to day in, day out. Everything else? What we can’t grow we source locally from our neighbouring farms, fishermen and producers. It’s important to note that our menu will change subtly with the season and what is available.
A Source of Inspiration
Citrus & Cumquat Orchard
Our garden provides an endless source of inspiration for our chefs, from which we draw upon to create the restaurant’s seasonally focused menus, showcasing local produce along with an abundance of fresh ingredients harvested daily straight. An olive grove, lemon and cumquat orchard have also been established over recent years to expand on what our menus offer.
We invite you to experience Byron Bay’s most authentic garden to plate ethos that is matched with next level flavour and inspiration from a plethora of cuisines.
