The calamaris and tacos are the best. Great service and very friendly staff. Even though me and 3 mates went on a busy arvo, food came out quick and very well presented. Highly recommend if you're in Byron.

Fun, affordable, and delicious. Had a great night at The Green Bistro and definitely recommend for anyone trying to chase away the tacky atmosphere of the many Byron restaurants.
