The food was wonderful. For lunch we had the local mushroom soup. Amazing. We were there for lunch, so Soup and flat breads were all we ordered. The Duck/Fig flat bread was also superb. The food and service were great; however, the space had some problems. The place has a funky off smell common to old buildings. Also, it appears... More

Wonderful Mediterranean restaurant in downtown Kennett. From the hummus and baba ganoush to the grilled branzino or scallops risotto, everything is delicious. You'll feel like you are dining in Europe.

Dont miss this wonderful restaurant. Reservations are good as they get busy. BYOB is a nice touch but the food is amazing.

I go here a lot, I always choose to go on nights threw the week or lunch on sturdays due to less people. I prefer a quiet place to eat with excellent food and service and this is it. I’ve never had anything bad from here. Tip it’s BYOB but on the next block down is a tasting room called... More

We were there early with reservations. Said that they would be full in 20-30 minutes, so could not chnage our seats. Well our seat was in a corner and the place was not full after 20-30 minutes. So we could have been moved to a better seatingarea. In fact not sure how they get away with a seat in front... More

The food is consistently excellent, especially the fish specials. Byrsa Bistro has a cozy atmosphere. Great for couples or a group. Reasonably priced and BYOB.

Went to this lovely restaurant over memorial weekend. Everything was perfect. The food, the service and the ambiance. You must try it if you are in town. No alcohol- so go to wine store for BYOB. Can't wait to visit again.

Byrsa Bistro in Old Kennet Square, PA, is a gem of a restaurant -- small but full of Mediterranean ambiance. While traveling in the Kennett Square area we stopped in for dinner and were not disappointed. My husband had the mushroom soup, which he said was quite good. His entree was the organic chicken tagine, cooked in a sauce with... More
