It was booked out so we sat at the bar (can't make bookings for bar). Tapas was delicious. We had olives, peppers, black rice and pork belly. Mediterranean Mule cocktail was so good that we had 3 of them! Service was great. Cool place with a great vibe. Highly recommended. 15% surcharge on public holidays

Super impressed with the professional and friendly/attentive staff, superb food and wine and a very hip relaxed vibe. First class in all aspects. Best experience in Byron.

I get that Byron Bay hospitality infrastructure gets swamped at this time of year, and that there just isn't the capacity at times to fit people in. These guys are absolutely masters of their craft, and not just the food, which is to die for! My partner and I came to Byron for the week. We are not shy when... More

St Elmos was our favourite restaurant in Byron but we don't think we'll be back. We booked a table for 8th 29 Dec 16. We turned up spot on 8th. There was about 8 people waiting on the footpath outside the restaurant waiting to be seated. When we were served, we were told "we are setting your table now and... More

On my third visit to St. Elmo over a couple of years I really wanted to like it. The place looks cool and you can't really beat that indoor/outdoor vibe. However, once again I was left feeling blah. Staff are nice, but not efficient. Food arrived before drinks both at the beginning and at dessert. Some no no's in the... More

Nice ambience and very trendy. Food is nice but the tapas portions are quite small, hard to justify price. Service wasn't very smooth, hard to get someone to look after you and slow, but they were friendly.

All we wanted was a couple of cocktails at 9.30pm at night. Was told they were "closing" even though there must have been 60 people still in the restaurant? Elitist, pretentious and obviously not keen on customer service. Never going back.

Went here for drinks - they advertised that they still had two hours left of service but refused us service and asked us to leave. For drinks. Go to the Balcony instead.

Just a wonderful experience, service and food were right on the money. It is Spanish, with a good variety of tapas. My favourites were the arroz negros and the bikinis (this is a bit of surprise ;)
