Rae's is timeless. Best position. Elegant crowd for afternoon drinks on the deck overlooking the beach...be sure to book a table. Dining is also an added bonus, no need to go into Byron and the food is adventurously delicious.

Don’t think so the whole restaurant is under cover but open air - suggest you give them a call to find out

I don't think they have a bar on it's own. You may be able to get a table for a drink before others eat? Licensing wise I think they probably need to serve food with alcohol
