Jason Barratt’s Top 5 on the Tweed Coast



Where does Paper Daisy’s Exec Chef Eat?

When guests are at Halcyon House for a longer stay, we are often asked where else aside from Paper Daisy would we recommend they eat? And who better to answer this question than Paper Daisy’s very own Executive Chef, Jason Barratt. We asked Jason to give us his top 5 places to dine in and around the region. It was a tough job for him to narrow it down to only 5, but we think you’ll love his selection. There’s something for all tastes and moods.


Restaurant Labart | Burleigh Heads

Perfect date night spot, casual with attention to detail. Highly recommend the tasting menu ($75pp)
The have a great wine list with lots of amazing Australian wines.

Visit Restaurant Labart here.

Ethel Food Store | Brunswick Heads

Best coffee in Brunswick heads.  Great daily selection of salads and pastries. A quiet and peaceful place to relax and read the paper, people watch and chat to locals. Keep an eye out for their special pasta nights on Tuesdays!

Visit Ethel Food Store here.


New Brighton Farmers Market | New Brighton

Tuesday mornings from 8am. Produce from the region’s best farmers and suppliers, and check out ‘the nomadic kitchen’ for breakfast too. Get there early to avoid the crowd.

Visit New Brighton Farmers Market here.


Saint Maries | Brunswick Heads

A newly opened casual pizza joint with a nice selection of natural wines. Run buy some young hospitality pro’s.

Visit Saint Maries here.

Fleet | Brunswick Heads

The obvious choice for fine dining in the region and for good reason, it’s still one of the best. Bookings are hard to come by so book ahead well in advance. Will not disappoint.

Visit Fleet here.


So, there you have it. 5 great places to dine at when you stay at Halcyon House, all with Jason’s stamp of approval – so you know they’re going to be good!
