El Camino Cantina offers all the classic Mexican dishes

El Camino Cantina opened in Byron Bay over Anzac Day with a very successful four-day launch weekend and, according to Rockpool Dining Group CEO Thomas Pash, everything is off to a great start. “El Camino Cantina has been very well received by locals and visitors to Byron Bay. Our tacos and loaded nachos are proving to be two of the best-sellers alongside our classic margarita.”

And the feel-good launch was also about doing good too with donations ($1 from every full-priced margarita sold) going toward the Byron Bay Community Benefit Fund and the Community Showers project that provides hot showers and other services to the homeless.

El Camino, located in Mercato on Byron in Jonson Street is unashamedly Tex-Mex with all the classics that we love; tacos, fajitas, tortillas, nachos and quesadillas – the perfect hit after a surf at The Pass or a lighthouse run. Quintessential Tex-Mex flavours extend to the bar menu too with a range of margaritas and Mexican draught and bottle cervezas available.

Bright custom-made artwork adorns the walls and quirky touches surround.
