A contemporary Japanese hibachi grill and wine bar in Byron Bay from the team behind Light Years.

Whether you prefer a seat at the bar, dining room, or alfresco, we invite you to enjoy the intimate surrounds with a concentrated menu showcasing flavours from classical Japanese cuisine reinterpreted in unexpected and unique ways.

Not one to take licks lightly, our drinks menu is made up of biodynamic wines chosen according to the luna cycle, sake - both hot and cold, a selection of Japanese whiskies, and an elevated cocktail list which pays homage to the longstanding craft of Japanese cocktail making.

We are open for dinner 7 days a week. All bookings can be made online. We look forward to welcoming you to Moonlight.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes! We love dogs of all shapes and sizes. When booking, please ensure to select the ‘deck’ area and leave a note that you’ll be bringing your four legged friend. We also ask that they remain on the leash for the entirety of your meal.


Moonlight Hibachi Grill and Wine Bar is both wheelchair and disability friendly. However, as not every table is wheelchair accessible, we do ask that you provide advanced notice when making your reservation so we can ensure a smooth experience from start to finish.

You’ll find the wheelchair-accessible entrance via Bay Lane (which is also the main entrance). There is also a wheelchair accessible bathroom available. For further information please reach out to our friendly team via hello@moonlightbar.com.au.

Dietary Requirements

We are happy to accommodate dietary requirements and food allergies where possible. Note, we operate out of a very small kitchen, and while we try our best to minimise cross contamination we cannot guarantee a zero risk of exposure to allergens. Please ensure you leave a note of your requirements when making your booking or get in contact via email prior to your visit if you have any questions.
