St Elmo is great and has been around for a while in Byron. You can grab a coffee late in the afternoon when other places have finished their coffee service.

Food is mainly Latin American inspired with interesting combinations. Lots of gluten free options too - the chorizo and scallops were a hit along with the pork belly. Great wine list and fun atmosphere- be sure to book to avoid disappointment.

Enough food for two of us, with some larger than std tapas and their cocktails were also really well balanced and tasty. Recommend finishing with an expression martini... More

One of the best meals I have had - every dish full of flavour but still light and fresh. Great wine list and inventive cocktails. Fun and knowledgable staff, cozy atmosphere. Book a table.

My personal favourites here are the black rice with prawns and the duck breast. Best meal in Byron thus far. Parking easily available. Good service too
