Waiters were really attentive, knew the wine list well and advised us how many dishes to choose. Food was delicious, it all came at perfect intervals. Atmosphere was fantastic to, would definitely recommend booking ahead... More

We dined at St Elmo during a weekend stay at Byron. There was 6 of us, so we opted for picking several different things and sharing. All 6 of us loved everything and could fault nothing. The unanimous favourite was the pork belly which was out of this world. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food arrived quickly. Lots of choice... More

A lovely little modern restaurant tucked up a side street from central Byron Bay. It had a really nice atmosphere, even on a Monday so I'm sure on a weekend, it would be mega busy! We had the tapas and it was to die for, very unusual tastes but they were done well. Accompanied by a good selection of wines.... More

Great with a group of friends as they are all share plates and then you can try lots of things! Soft shell crab and the scallops were the highlights Great wine and local beer offering. Moderately priced.
