This restaurant is typically what you would find in Melbourne, and I love it! I have visited several times for late lunches and dinner and the food, service and atmosphere is always consistantly great! Good Spanish-inspired food and fabulous beverages, the menu seems to change from time to time and it's always fresh. Some of the most unique but best flavours i've ever tasted, highly recommend it.

We wandered around Byron Bay looking for a restaurant on Christmas Eve, and found this amazing tapas restaurant. The ambiance was excellent, the servers courteous and informed, and the food was amazing.

Usually it's easy to pick a favourite, but we had serious difficulties choosing which we liked best!

The slow cooked beef cheek was great, the soft shell crab sliders were amazing, and the chorizo flatbread delightfully subtle. The overall experience was extremely positive.

Thanks so much for such a great meal.

We ate here a year ago and enjoyed greatly and thought we would give it another go. Arrived on time for our 8pm reservation and informed that our table wasn't ready however there was also no place to wait at the bar for our table.

We returned 20mins later for our meal. Food was enjoyable without being blowing us away and service was fine and what I would expect from a restaurant charging their prices.

Overall acceptable however do not feel the need to promote or return in a hurry.

Dined at St Elmo for a Sausalito dinner and were absolutely blown away by the quality of the food. The dining room is funky & stylish but very comfortable with a warm & friendly ambience thanks to the great music & the friendly, knowledgable & efficient staff. It is well priced. Good wine list, with good choice of beers & spirits. Interesting selection of dishes that easily suited the vegetarian in our party. Superb desserts. We were so impressed we returned the following night and were equally as happy. If this was in my home town I would dine there regularly.
