El Camino Cantina, Byron Bay

El Camino Cantina is unashamedly Tex-Mex, which is short for Texan-Mexican and distinct from true Mexican cuisine. Humming with trademark, cool tunes and colourful sombreros, the eclectic cantina accommodates 241 diners, including 130 seated on a spacious balcony overlooking Jonson Street, where customers can enjoy Byron’s balmy ambience.


A fusion of urban chic and coastal cool, El Camino Cantina evokes a sense of playfulness. The walls are a visual feast of bright, custom-made artwork and bold rock posters by artist Ben Brown, colourful calavera and other quirky touches, which fuse with accents of rustic Mexican haciendas, including weathered wood and reclaimed timbers, earthy tones, and decorative tiles.

There are large-screen TVs playing music videos and entertainment. Seating is a mix of high-top tables and stools, lower dining tables, and booths – perfect for pairs of diners, small parties, and large group events and celebrations.
