Very nice jewel in Kennett Square. The staff was super helpful and the decor and atmosphere were different and interesting. The food was excellent. Highly recommend this BYOB.

We came for lunch one time and were impressed to return for dinner. Middle-east menu (?) Very pleasant wait staff, but dark interior and rather cramped spaces. We did enjoy what we ate though...

A small, comfortable, interior. Interesting menu thoroughly Mediterranean. We were served a complimentary vegetable amuse bouche. Our shared appetizer was the mushroom flat bread was very good but filling. We also ordered one of their Tapas which came with slices of flat bread and olives, good olives, not brine soaked. The Paella was excellent and the duck special equally good.... More

Byrsa has excellent Mediterranean food. We had the paella and loved it. It had an abundance of seafood with subtle, delicious flavors. We had the sampler which was excellent, too. The one very slight downside is that it's just a little bit pricey; but it's not outrageous. And, it's BYOB!

Small Mediterranean BYOB in the heart of Kennett Square. The food was delicious and the service was welcoming. My chicken was moist and flavorful. I thought portion sizes were just right.

This small restaurant in downtown Kennett Square offers an assortment of Mediterranean appetizers and main courses. The Toulouse Cassoulet was very meaty and well succulent - great for a cold evening. The grilled Branzino was lightly flavored and fresh. Both fresh coffee and walnut baklava made the meal end on a happy note. The restaurant is BYOB, but there is... More

Byrsa is a rather unique restaurant in the center of Kennett Square. The menu is quite varied and somewhat difficult to categorize. Mainly Eastern Mediterranean, but not at all typical Lebanese or Arabian. There is always a choice of dishes from seafood to meat, plus vegetarian and everything we've had has been flavorful and very enjoyable. And not something we... More

The food is good and the Mediterranean fare is good. I had the lamb shank which was huge so it was less flavorful. My biggest gripe is they placed 4 of us at this fancy table that had a big missing piece that told me it was a 3 person table. Fortunately they had a real table and moved us... More
