On food alone this is the best place in town. Top that with the fact that it is BYOB and it can't be beat. Always fresh. Always interesting. I don't know why other reviewers are referencing Italian in there reviews. Byrsa is western Mediterranean. Don't come looking for pasta and marinara.

What a nice departure from the run-of-the-mill Italian and steak places around. The menu has many different things to choose from whether you're a vegetarian or a meat or seafood lover. The wait staff is attentive, and I always love a BYOB! Call ahead for a reservation - this place gets booked on the weekends.

We were invited by friends for a birthday dinner to Bysra. We were a large party of 15, which they were able to accommodate in a very inviting way. The restaurant has a lot of small tables, with low, intimate lighting, but the clientele was not just couples when we were there. It was very busy, on the Friday night... More

Kennett Square has an incredible number of great dining options for such a small town, but Byrsa is one of my favorites. The grape leaves are fabulous and the rest of the menu has a number of unique and delicious options.

Top notch Mediterranean cuisine. Not prentice us, just done right and with care. This is also a BYOB so bring a lovely wine that can stand up to the flavors. The fish is wonderful, hummus, appetizers and the chicken my husband loves. Couscous is fabulous, they accommodated for vegans and vegetarians. They are busy call ahead.

We found this restaurant online and decided to try it as we enjoy Mediterranean dishes. I was charmed by the warm atmosphere and the owner came to greet us. We had a competent waitress-a little delay at times with food but it may have meant longer prep time for some items-- Our meals were very good-my chicken dish was presented... More

My family and I have enjoyed dinning at Byrsa's since they opened a few years ago. I've never been disapointed. Quality, ambiance, presentation, service, and value are great.

My wife and I were joined by another couple at this restaurant recently for a little holiday dinner. Having never been here before, I was a little nervous about inviting guests to an establishment where I had not dined before. However, after reading some favorable reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to wing it. I was glad I did. This place... More

I was impressed from the moment the waitress came over to take our drink order. She was noticeable smiling and very personable. The service was great and the owner who was also extremely friendly (Ahmed) stopped over a few times and told us how the food was prepared and then made sure that everything cooked to our satisfaction. The bronzino... More
