My dining guest and I stopped by for lunch and we'll back! Located on the main street, we got lucky to find a space right on the street. We were greeted and shown to a table at a window. We both started with the hot Moroccan tea which we were told is a blend of three different teas. It was... More

Byrsa Bistro is a gem in the heart of Kennett Square (home to several culinary gems). The space is a little odd, but the food and service are outstanding! We were greeted warmly at the door (by the way, I would recommend reservations for the weekend evenings!), and the service remained very friendly and attentive throughout our visit. Our meals...

We have dined at Byrsa on several occasions and each meal has been a wonderful experience. The menu has a great deal of diversity, relying upon available of locally grown, fresh food whenever possible. This creates a unique "fusion" menu that has something for almost any food preference.

The test of excellence where food is concerned is reliability over time especially after sampling a variety of dishes. My husband & I , family & friends have eaten at this local Mediterranean eatery myriad times, and I can honestly say the food is excellent, the dishes creative, colorful & portions plentiful. Service has overall been attentive. Of course there... More

I emailed the restaurant to let them know that 2 of us got sick after eating there on saturday October 25, 2014. they didn't seem to care. there were 4 of us all having different meals. the only same foods eaten by the 2 who got sick were the mushroom soup and the creme brulee. i suspect the mushroom soup.

My family and I decided to try this restaurant again after a poor first experience when they had just opened. The menu looked great and much improved, however the prices extremely high, which is fine if the food is top notch, and I don't doubt that it is. I ordered the butternut squash soup and an entrée clearly stating 3... More

We read the reviews before booking, and this place has a great following. The service was caring and excellent. Unfortunately, we were not impressed and will not be back. Firstly, the layout of the tables in the restaurant is strange, a wood tree trunk, booths, tables, sloping areas, just not appealing. The bread served was good, with a nice vegetable... More

We hadn't really researched restaurants before we arrived and not being from the area weren't up to speed on the licensing laws in PA. We had a delicious cider at the nearby marketplace and purchased a bottle of Cabernet Franc to bring to dinner. Byrsa was busy but they were very accommodating and our server was very friendly and helpful.... More
