Always make time for dinner and drinks at St. Elmo when we visit Byron Bay. By far the best restaurant in Byron Bay - food, drinks, service and atmosphere is top notch! We will be back next visit to Byron!

The good points? Friendly service. The bad points? Very noisy (it was crowded), Overpriced (capital city prices) for Byron Bay, food quality just average, (pork belly was very fatty, seafood soup was sparse with the seafood, Potato Bravas was the best of a bad lot. The prices were what I could expect to pay for a quality main course in... More

This place came so highly recommended during our stay in Byron area, and we were not disappointed! We really enjoyed watching the cocktail waiters mix endless drinks, while we shared several tapas plates. The food was original and flavoursome and it felt like a really groovy and hip place. Coming from Melbourne, it really reminded us of a Melbourne restaurant,... More

Everything is so tasty. Starters, salads, main dishes and desserts. One of our favorites in Byron Bay. Keep coming back.

Food was delicious and there were classics on the menu but all done very nicely, as well as some unusual dishes. Atmosphere was great and the place is trendy and modern. Staff were great. Recommend.

I am a Melbournian - St Elmo's is like a cool Melbourne lane way place with great food, cocktails, service and decor - with much better weather! It would be highly rated by Melb ("the hospitality capital of Australia") standards. Beautiful to be able to enjoy such a top notch place on holidays.

This tapas bar/ restaurant has a great ambience and vibe. The decor is smart and the welcome was friendly and accommodating. The food was fresh and flavoursome. We particularly enjoyed the beetroot salad and the sweet corn salad. The barramundi was also delicious but the portion small. There is a great wine list that includes several interesting Spanish varieties. We... More

The tapas are done very well ( almost as good as Movida )The service wasn't the best although we may have gotten an off night. A great restaurant for a nice night out.

The food/tapas was interesting and a little different so it was good to try something a little more unique. Enjoyed the food although the portions were rather small. Good service. I was a little taken aback when paying by credit card, I didn't notice that it asked me to enter a 'tip' amount. I just automatically entered my pin number... More
