I can’t fault a single thing! The food was superb as was the service. We had a pre dinner martini downstairs and the most beautifully put together dinner upstairs. I highly recommend the baby gem lettuce, the Spanish ham and soft cheese, the market fish with creamed sweet corn and to finish, the pineapple. You just know the chef really cares! An exceptional meal. Thank you.

Service started off great but then went down hill we felt forgotten about and sides were actually forgotten with our mains. We had to remind the waiter then it only turned up as we had finished eating the mains, then the potato’s werent even cooked properly. Such a shame that this made us leave disappointed as it was a beautiful setting and I had a great virgin mock tail and the steak was cooked very well.

A gorgeous unique dining experience right on the iconic Wategos beach. Attentive service in a relaxed environment. The food and wine did not disappoint! Highly recommended! We are also loving the cellar door, a great addition to the Rae’s experience.

To not provide complimentary still water for the table and then be charged $10 when we had half a glass each (2 people) is ridiculous. Not once were we told there would be a charge nor did we have our glasses refilled. The beach provides complimentary still or sparkling water on arrival and all guests are made aware that it is complimentary. Meals are small, especially fish of the day and cocktails are overpriced. Won’t be visiting again.

Very disappointed that I wasn’t made aware we would have a set menu as a group booking. The steak we had was very dry and not very flavoursome. Beautiful setting and atmosphere. Very happy with the service. Overall disappointed with the food.

I visited Rae's with high expectations on the 31st of January after reading about it online. However, was thoroughly disappointed by the food as it wasn't really anything to write home about & for the price - more was expected. However we were more so disappointed by the man who served us. He was very pushy, stuck up & acted as if he were better than the patron's which made us & quite obviously the two young ladies seated next to us - feel uncomforable. A shame really as the fitout & location is second to none.

Absolutely 1st class. Casual and relaxed atmosphere, importantly for us the music was just at the right level to add a relaxed atmosphere but also allow easy conversation. The service was perfect. Very attentive and respectful at the same time. Food and wine also matched the rest of the setting - Superb. We have found our new favourite in Byron...

Fantastic weekend. The Raes team are great hosts. Two glitches...no hot water for a shower on the Saturday evening and our car was returned filthy after being parked offsite.

Went back solely to have the incredible saltbush agnolotti for a second time having tried it in November. It didn’t disappoint. Staff were attentive and the food and wine were consistently good

The food was disappointing. Rae's has a clearly unbeatable location, staff service was great and tried to make it better but the dinner menu was a let down. We feel the menu should be completely changed. The menu was unexciting and when our dishes arrived it was exactly that. Flavours didnt fuse in both courses, oysters didnt taste fresh, lamb was overcooked. We decided against desserts.

We had such a lovely evening at Raes, everything about the experience was spot on. We'll definitely be back. Hot tip: have the saltbush pasta entree.
