Day tripping at Babalou


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

While recently in the coastal village of Kingscliff we stumbled upon Babalou, and what a great find it was. Upstairs of the Kingscliff Beach Hotel in the main street is where you’ll find this eclectic looking Bar and Restaurant. You enter via a vivid lime green striped stairwell that at the top opens to a lounge area complete with games like chess and scrabble plus what every good restaurant should have a record player for patrons to spin some favourite tunes on. Not to be outdone the main restaurant bar area has surprises tastefully placed at every turn, this is so well executed it manages to create a stylish yet welcoming space. The staff were attentive and knew the menu well. The food was just as good and inventive as the decor – my peach and pumpkin salad with seared scallops will definitely bring me back, as would the omelettes and well made coffee we had at our return breakfast visit. All in all Babalou is definitely worth a visit, with alot to offer a varying crowd not to mention the views out to the ocean.
