The food was absolutely delicious! We went for the steak tartare special, serrano with tomato bread, the pippies, cuttlefish black rice and cheese to finish. I cannot express how good every single dish was. Best dining experience in a long time!

Good wine list, nice food and lovely, tolerant service. When I'm having to wait a while in Byron it is the place to go for me to get my work done for a couple of hours. Graze on the small dishes. And see if the wine list is holding up.

We stopped here for an Aperol Shpritz, was great, just as good as we've had in Europe. Staff were professional and friendly and the ambience was great.

We were excited for dinner at St. Elmo's. As they didn't take reservations, we walked over to the restaurant and were added to the wait list. We were told that we would receive a call once a table was free but to come back in an hour. We didn't receive a call so went back an hour later and were... More

Great little Tapas place that had a good atmosphere. We ordered way too much food some dishes were better that others but overall would recommend. The staff were very polite and friendly.

A nice little place out of the way of the hustle and bustle of Byron. Food was delicious and we left feeling full but not over indulgent. Would go back, staff were attentive, nice atmosphere.

My wife and i enjoyed this place on a busy Saturday evening. Overall I'd rate it as very good with an up beat sophisticated vibe in laid back Byron Bay. The service was excellent helped along by a savvy waitress with an American accent and very interesting food with distinct flavors. A couple of points about the food stood out,... More

I don't review very often but this i feel i have to share so others can take on board before making their decision to dine here. They did squeeze us in earlier than our booking and the waiter was polite and the food was good, however... the food is very overpriced for what you get and they were clearly understaffed... More
