We made a booking and arrived to be professionally greeted. We chose 2 dishes - the steak special and the soft crab sliders - whilst the flavours were good the portion sizes were very small indeed for a $24 dish and in Sydney you'd get double the size for the value. We enjoyed a great bottle of Spanish red wine... More

Excellent choices on the menu and our food was delicious. Fresh and interesting. We could choose from a number of wines by the glass that were reasonably priced. Need to book as it is quite popular.

Nice night out, but nothing too memorable. The restaurant is nice, but tables are very close together. Good atmosphere, but not an intimate dining experience. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was nice, but wasn't blown away. Considering the price I'd probably explore other restaurants rather than return here on future visits to byron.

Having been in contact via email with this restaurant to book for 14 people, we confirmed a reservation a week out. 3 hours prior to the booking I checked my voicemail to hear our booking had been cancelled by the restaurant as they hadn't been able to get hold of me to confirm. Had the first email stipulated a further... More

We love this place. Great food and excellent cocktails and wine. Really tasty food to share and friendly for our teenagers too. Was a bit noisy the second time but no different from other Byron places. Highly recommend.

We visited St Elmo on the last night of our girls' trip to Byron and it was fantastic. Food was delicious, and service was friendly. Lots of unusual combinations in the tapas plates that all worked together for a flavour explosion! Not a cheap night by any means. The four of us paid about $75 per head, but that did... More

My partner and I recently dined at this restaurant and had a fantastic experience. With amazing food, a romantic intimate setting and wonderful service. Must try the sangria- it was delicious. We shared a number of tapas plates, quick service and each were delightful. Lovely evening and would most certainly dine here again

We visited here last night, what an amazing restaurant, best tapas restaurant I have ever been to, our highlight of our Byron bay visit. Can't wait to come back and try some more dishes, the espresso martinis were also awesome as well as the Spanish wine!

Fabulous food and excellent service. Good value for money. Good range of wine by the glass which is nice for a change. Great atmosphere. If I had a complaint it would be the music (on the night we went) was a little loud but overall a good night out..We'd definitely go again next time we're in Byron Bay.
