Really enjoyable, tasty tapas especially the sea bream and the pork belly. Even the flat breads were piping hot and fresh, and the friendly staff made sure our indecisiveness was no problem.

Tasty tapas. Plenty of choice for both vegetarian and meat eaters, they catered well of a large group. Service was great. Nice restaurant. Good value. Recommend trying the flat bread.

Lovely food with a good selection of dishes. The belly pork and halloumi were particularly good. Really nice atmosphere and good service. Would definitely go again.

The food was delicious and the service was quick and friendly. Plenty of vegetarian options for my other half. It's a small restaurant though so don't expect lots of room!

This is a lovely small restaurant on a side street from the main road, but the whole area has a great independent, slightly bohemian vibe. We were the first diners in at 6.45 which worried me. But it was only because of the time - it soon started filling up. The staff were attentive and friendly, and the food was pretty good. It was Spanish meets Greek meets Moroccan, and a sensible sized menu for food, and a much larger one for drinks. The flat bread to start was one of our favourite dishes, as it was made to perfection. The mains were all good. If being critical the courgette fritters were too big because that made them a lot soggier in the middle, and the croquettas were made with potato which I think is wrong. But we both absolutely loved the pork belly - well cooked, fat perfectly rendered and sat in a delicious balsamic sauce. We left feeling full, having enjoyed the atmosphere, savoured a nice independent experience and being well looked after.

We have visited Byzantium several times over the years and sometimes it's wonderful and other times it's not as good. This time it was excellent and I feel that this is because it wasn't as busy. The food was delicious except for the chicken livers in a sherry sauce which used to be our favourite dish. We feel that they must have changed the recipe as the sauce is no longer as rich as it used to be and the livers themselves were over cooked. On the up side, the broad beans and artichoke were very good, as was everything we had. The wait staff were fairly good, although inexperienced. We will visit again.

A charming restaurant, just off a busy high street. We usually go on a lunchtime and have the tapas. They do, however, open in the evenings and have a comprehensive Mediterranean menu. 3 or 4 tapas dishes are sufficient for two people sharing, unless you are very hungry. For a starter, we usually share a flatbread, which is freshly cooked, and a homous. I usually have a San Miguel beer and my wife has the house wine, but there is a reasonable selection. The service is good and the surroundings very pleasant. Highly recommended.

Excellent food and atmosphere. BUT we arrived at 7.45 on a Tuesday evening and had to wait till 8.30 for our food, although the drinks arrived a little (but not a lot) earlier. There was only one waiter and he was very busy. He was very apologetic when he came over to us. He certainly wasnt slacking but could have done with a colleague to help him. I don't know if its always like this as this was our first visit and despite the wait, we would go back again as the food was excellent and very good value.

Good service, good food, and good atmosphere. Eaten here twice and have enjoyed it on both occasions. On our first visit, our main courses were a little delayed (not to the point of complaining). We hadn't even reached the point of enquiring when the waiter came over and apologised for the delays and gave us both dessert and a digestif for free. This is a restaurant that cares about their customers' experience and serves great food. Highly recommended.

We had a fabulous time! The service was if a particularly high standard, attentive and interested but not overbearing. My partner was presented with profiteroles with a candle in for his birthday, which was a nice touch. Great selection of aperitifs - we both enjoyed an Aperol spritz. The food was all great. We paid £65 for our meal which I thought was great value considering we had 7 tapas, 2 flat breads, drinks and desert. I can't wait to go back again to try even more of the dishes on offer!
