Now open again. Social distancing rules apply.

Open to the public, Monday to Saturday from 5.30pm

Closed Sundays and Public Holidays

The Bambino winebar @ the Islander Resort, Ballina.

During the day the Bambino Bar and Courtyard is the perfect place for guests to relax and enjoy a refreshing drink along with some tasty snacks.
After 5.30 the atmosphere picks up as the locals drop-in to unwind at the end of the day or watch live sports on the large screen TV.

Enjoy your favourite drink sitting at the bar or in the adjacent covered courtyard overlooking our saltwater lagoon pool and spa – a wonderful place to spend a summer's night. The mood is jovial and relaxed with friendly staff ready to discuss our well-stocked and well priced wine list, boutique wines are profiled on the weekly specials board and our creative cocktails are always a talking point, or choose an icy-cold beer from a range of local and imported beers.

It's a great spot to watch sporting events on our large screen TV and enjoy the atmosphere with others, and keep an eye out for special theme nights, music nights and food and wine events which are promoted on our website.

When you are ready wander into The Terrace Restaurant to enjoy the culinary delights prepared by our talented team of chefs, or stay where you are and select from the bar menu which celebrates produce from local growers and varies constantly (apart from the favourites). Choose from Antipasto Plates or indulge in one of the Chef's special ”Burgers with Attitude“ - expect to be delighted with our ever changing menu. Finish your evening with an affogato, a liqueur or a coffee made from locally grown and roasted, Knockrow Ridge beans, coffee prepared from 100% Australian grown Aribica beans.
