Excellent food, lovely place, etc highly recommend and not to expensive Prawns and flatbread with humus were so delicious that we are definitely going back
Excellent tapas, really fresh and tasty, in a cosy and relaxed environment. Can’t fault it, even boxed the leftovers to take away. Will be returning again
Wonderful staff, wonderful food at good prices. Booked online, but left it a bit late. Was fully booked upon arrival but they managed to let us sit in the back room. Which was great anyway as we had more room.
Fantastic food, really very good quality. Great service. We (though I was the one who ate it as the only non-vegetarian) were given some pork belly to try at no cost which was really delicious, tender with great crackling. The flat breads aubergine and patatas alioli were really good, I couldnt fault the food at all. Our waiter was attentive without bieng intrusive, we couldnt have been better looked after. Really recommended for a relaxed and very good quality lunch. Also very good value for money.
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.
We have frequented Byzantium over the years and sometimes it was great and sometimes it was decidedly average. Happily, when My partner and I went to Byzantium on St Valentine’s Day we were both pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by very friendly staff upon arrival and were treated to a complimentary glass of prosecco. The food was excellent; I would highly recommend the pork belly and the bastilla. The flat bread and olives were wonderful. We will definitely be back.
