Lost count on the number of times that we have enjoyed Ahmed's Western Mediterranean fusion fare and it continues to do so. For me it all about his Chicken Tagine...while the serving has gotten a little smaller he has still balanced the spice and sweetness to create a fragrant, spices and rich... read more

Service was spot on, it's a BYOB so bring your favorite! Menu had a variety of entrees to please any palette. Ordered scallops and short rib---both entrees were excellent with seaconal and interesting preparations. I will not hesitate to return.

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.

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.
