“Best Tapas - cannot be beaten”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

For a Wednesday during school holidays I think we were quite lucky to have got a table! Always have a brilliant meal here. have tried other Tapas places (don't get me wrong all are good and have their own unique twist). St Elmo's has a fantastic freshness to the food, it is not heavily oiled (like most tapas places). We shared 4 meals between my husband and I and then got a dessert each (hehe!). You will definitely walk out feeling well fed, and very content. I reccommend trying the Byron Bay Ice Tea (cocktail). Very refreshing!

“Advise booking ahead”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We were very lucky to get into this restaurant on a Saturday night, we booked their last available table the day before which meant we were eating a little earlier than planned. Food service ambience and drinks were all fantastic, will be eating here again on my next Byron trip.

“Mmmmmnom nom nom delicious”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

I'm a sucker for good tapas any where - but these really were goooood. Highlight was the beef cheek, so tender and tasty. It was a really fun atmosphere, quite busy, but the food still arrived in a timely manner. The waitress was excellent.

This was a 'night out' rather than just a 'meal' - I highly recommend.

I would suggest booking ahead (we didn't and luckily got a spot)

“A great treat”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

We had just one night in Bryon Bay and heard through the grapevine this was the place to eat. Once we'd decided to through our budget out the window we really enjoyed the delicious food and esp. their sangria.
