This place has a good atmosphere and great wines. We tried the croquettes, artichoke salad, beef cheek, pork, scallops and crab sliders. All were good, but I would suggest only getting one of the meat dishes as they are very very rich - having both the pork and beef was a bit much.

Was planning on eating at a different restaurant but unfortunately that restaurant menu had no appeal. Drove back into Byron and found this treasure.

Every bit of food was delicious and worth every penny. We were there last week for a hens party and the restaurant gave us the place to ourselves so we could enjoy our company together even more. Fabulous!

I hosted my best friend's hens here the other week for 21 ladies. There was a gratuity but between all of us it worked out to be $8 each which is pretty standard when booking a function.

I only gave one for a rating because of the complimentary car parking. At $55 a head for a set menu the food was so disappointing, portions were minimal at best And at the end we were given a bill for $150 for Gratuities - Is this even legal ? We would have given them a tip but I have... More

My friend and I went here for my birthday dinner on our first night in Byron. Great service, delicious cocktails, amazing food. The staff couldn't have been more friendly, professional and helpful. Although it may be a bit pricey you definitely get what you pay for.

This place was good. Service was attentive, food was perfect. I left happy but wondering if my expectations were too high? I was also expecting a baby and that could be the reason why I left a bit hungry even if I tried many different tapas. But I would def recommend!
