The wait staff are well trained.(big on the up sell)
Tapas doesn't fit the Oz Psyche & its hard to pull off outside the inner city.
The portions are large & the staff explain the menu but it's still over priced & not authentic.

What killed it for us was the flat Cava by the glass.You know there's always a 90% chance of flat sparkling by the glass in Australia because the prices are high & the proprietors are tight so if bar staff can get away with it they'll pour from a bottle opened the night before or even the weekend before.Wasn't in the mood to complain because we knew we weren't coming back but ordered a 2nd glass which takes a while & on checking the bar, see the staff top up the dregs of the flat with a dash of fresh.The 3rd glass was spot on ....
Really the staff need to make a judgement call for the sake of a few $ give it to the kitchen for cooking or give it away to patrons or knock off drinks.

Honestly the best food I've eaten in, oh, probably ever. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Great cocktails with twists on all the classics. Friendly helpful staff who acted like they wanted you to have the best time. Comparable to some of the better restaurants in sydney.. Probably better. Can't recommend it enough. Just expect to spend a bit of money for great food.

We dined here last night and it was brilliant! The tapas was really tasty with a great selection and a large cocktail/wine/beer list to compliment it. The staff were super friendly and it was a really relaxed atmosphere in which to dine. Thanks for a great experience for our second time in Byron Bay.

We had dinner here and enjoyed sharing some tapas plates. The serves were the largest tapas plates I've seen, and each dish was well cooked, extremely tasty, and a bit different from the usual tapas fare. Cocktails were also amazing and well worth it. Apart from the food and great drinks though, the standout was the really friendly service with every request met with a huge smile and an efficient delivery. This was my first night in Byron and it was a great welcome to the area. Highly recommended.

Great food found here or if you simply just want a casual coffee and watch the passers by then that is fine too. Close to town without being in the fray.
