St Elmo's would be the top restaurant in the town centre. An extensive menu with a Spanish flare that changes seasonally with a sophisticated bar and vibe. Staff and management are genuinely helpful and friendly unlike a few other places near by. Well worth a visit

Every mouthful was a delightful food experience, just fantastic tastes from the combinations of flavours. The pastries with butternut pumpkin were simply so tasty, the pork belly with quince aioli was scrumptious, the snapper & prawns is a must and the beef cheeks just melt in your mouth, wash the food down with a pinot noir completes a perfect Sunday...

Great atmosphere. Great service. Was extremely impressed at the quality of food and menh offerings. Went with a party of six and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Only issues was that it is a bit over-priced, was quite noisy inside and they need to have Affogato on the menu. Will definitely be back.

We went to St Elmo Dining Room and Bar based on reviews of Trip Advisor and our love of Tapas. We were not disappointed. We had a great evening. The cocktails and wine were really good. Our food was all exceptional we shared the Olives, Empanadilla De Calabaza and Patatas Bravas to start with and followed with the Beef Cheek... More
