"We are proud to be a major part of Lennox Head and the heart of some local fundraising events," Maurice said.

The restaurant specialises in fresh seafood, premium steaks and an array of other meals - the menu is modern Australian and has something for everyone.

Since inception in 2011, Beef+Beach have obtained a collection of awards for their food and views - including being awarded as the Winner of the Lennox Head Chamber Awards Visitor Experience in 2016, as well a Winner of Sydney Morning Herald's, Best View in 2013.

The business is currently in the process of extending the venue to cater for large weddings and events, as well as adding in a new kitchen to cater for more guests.

With expectations to bring lots of people to Lennox Head, which will be a major benefit for the community, businesses and local partnering suppliers.

"We're extremely excited for this upcoming venue, we expect that it will bring lots of tourism to the area as well as support local restaurants & suppliers such as videographers, photographers, florists and hairdressers - all will benefit from this," Maurice said.

"Most importantly though, winning this award last year has allowed us to reflect on what we do well but has made us even more determined to exceed the expectation of all our visitors, and we will carry this out with our venue extension."
