“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I recently visited Byron Bay with friends and we had dinner on the Saturday evening at St Elmo which is a really relaxed wine bar and Tapas restaurant, of a high standard, but reasonably priced.. Honestly the best meal we had during our whole stay. Excellent staff and a great vibe in the venue made it a memorable night. Would highly recommend to any travellers and I will definitely return there when I next visit Byron Bay.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We visited whist staying next door during terrible weather as it was too wet to go any further, what luck! The atmosphere was warm and intiving. The food was sublime, we had the pork belly, beef with chimmicuri and a caramelised goats cheese vegetable dish. The wine and cocktails were fantastic and the service was impeccable. The standout however was the dessert, a chocolate custard, hazelnut praline, semifreddo and merengue affair that was the best thing I've eaten in a very long time

“Worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

The staff hear are super friendly and more than happy to help you make your tapas selection or answer any questions about the menu. If you are willing to try some different dishes you will have a fantastic night and wont be disappointed. The atmosphere in this place is fantastic. The only downside I have is the tables are to small to put all your food.

“The place for tapas e vino in Byron”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Join the cool kids and head to st. Elmo for a a tempranillo and tapas. Reasonably priced, warm service intersting food and a buzzy vibe. We were happy watching the action from the bar, but I'd suggest booking ahead to get a table.
