OPENINg MAY 2019
Ben Devlin, owner and chef, grew up in Byron Bay and was drawn back to work in the Northern Rivers in 2015 where he has since re-connected to the region, its people, and produce.
At Pipit Restaurant, he and wife Yen, will celebrate the coastal lifestyle with a focus on wood-fired methods, and local flavours that aim to surprise and delight
Dining inspired by its coastal setting
Coastal dining to us means that our space and menus are light, casual, and relaxed. We think vegetables, fruits, and seafood are the stars in our region.
We aim for bold, balanced flavours and hope to surprise you with things you might not have tried before or can only find in this part of the world. Our menu will be centred on wood-fired cooking, and our drinks menu will be based on low intervention wines and handmade beverages.

Not to serve hoofed animals (beef, pork, lamb, goat)
Support the AMCF Good Fish Guide in buying our seafood
Minimise wastage by actively looking for more creative ways to use all of our products

An abundant landscape
The region takes its form from a huge erosion caldera centred on Mount Warning, also known by its indigenous name ‘Wollumbin.’
We are blessed with a year-round subtropical climate and have more than 250 days of sunshine on average annually. This helps make our water temperature (21-26 Celsius) great for both surfing and seafood. Species you’ll see in the region and on our plates include:
moreton bay bugs
Our region starts in the rainforests, working down through sclerophyll forests, to woodlands, coastal dunes and to the ocean. Native and edible plants, you’ll find in the region and on our plates include:
