About Targa

"Targa", origin Italian: literally 'shield' given as a name to a model of Porsche with a detachable hood (1965) probably suggested by the Targa Florio ('Florio shield'). (Oxford dictionary)  The Targa Florio was an open road endurance automobile race held in the mountains of Sicily near Palermo. Founded in 1906, it was the oldest sports car racing event. (Wikipedia)       

Targa's space is a nod to Europe, classic and rustic,with dark European Bentwood furniture, damask wallpaper and rich wood features. Homage to Targa Florio can be found embedded amongst the walls. Our spacious venue is located on the corner of Marvell & Middleton St's, two blocks from the beach and central to Byrons best accommodations. Dine in or alfresco.

With a genuine love of the space and a steady local following of his food from past favourite haunts such as Olivo on Jonson St. and Seven Mile Cafe Lennox Head, well travelled chef David Prowse uses only the best local produce to craft menus designed to "give people what they want". Fresh food with flavours true to the methods passed down over generations to bring the best out of the produce. Targa serves up Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese & Australian influenced favorites daily.

Targa is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner, and antipasto & share plates through the afternoons. Join us for daily Aperitivo Happy Hour Aftrenoons between 4 and 6pm. Our bar is licensed to serve drinks with or without food from 10am, drop by for just a drink and choose from a refreshing selection of Australian & International wines, beer and cocktails. Deliciously rich Genovese coffee served all day, every day.

We can host up to 65 seated guests, more for stand up affairs and will happily arrange all aspects of your event and create menus to suit your taste and budget.
