We arrived late without a booking so sat at the bar. Chatted with bartenders and it was a lovely experience. Food was delicious and tapas idea works for the space

This restaurant was recommended to us & we were not disappointed. The food was a "taste experience" & delicious. The portions are small & so you need to order several different dishes and share them. The service was excellent and the waitress explained each dish...More

Was fortunate to get a seat at the bar with my husband on a Tuesday night in Byron at St Elmo's as tables were fully booked, unlike other restaurants we walked past which were largely empty. Great wine selection by glass and bottle, awesome cocktails-...More
