Excellent food, great ambiance, reasonably priced. Byzantium is one of my 'go to' restaurants with friends and every time it's been a really good evening.

This is a lovely, cosy and friendly restaurant. The food is delicious and plenty of choice. Prices are very reasonable. It's not big so book in advance if it's the weekend.

Food was delicious and reasonable in price, wine also didn't have the 'mark up' that a lot of restaurants have. A comfortable place to eat, not 'glossy' but nice atmosphere.

We always love coming to Byzantium - great service and great tapas as always. The guy who served us was really friendly to my disabled brother and very accomodating with my one year old son!

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!

my first visit following a recommendation. Booked as a party of 6 for a birthday treat. Staff were friendly and informative.the tapas came in good time and rapid succession. The food was hot and all commented on how tasty everything was, our favourite being the flat bread and dips, the pork belly, haloumi skewers and potatoes bravas. But we might need a return visit I order to try out the rest !

Absolutely love Byzantium. In my opinion it is by far the best Tapas restaurant in Birmingham. The chefs food is authentic and every dish is delicious. The place has a great ambience, the staff are lovely too-so attentive and friendly. I have visited this restaurant many times with various friends and family, all as equally impressed. On average-with drinks,we tend to spend £25-30pp which is excellent value.

A pleasant evening as ever; the restaurant seems much warmer these days - no need to wear your coat to eat. Good selection of food, quick service, pleasant wine and no crazy prices. The Patatas Bravas were particularly good - we hadn't tried those for a while - and we tried the selection of Olives which we'd not had before and they were great to start with. Friendly service and good prices - can't beat it on a Tuesday evening.

Byzantium is a great little restaurant. The decor is warm and welcoming, as are the staff. The food was fantastic! We started with the flat bread - freshly baked and so light and delicious that it disappeared in seconds. We had a selection of tapas, all of which were cooked perfectly especially the pork served in balsamic vinegar. To finish we shared a tiramisu which was light and creamy. All in all a really lovely meal.

This is a lively little place down a side road in Kingsheath. The staff were welcoming and friendly and seated us straight away (despite being early!). The food smelt amazing and tasted even better! Unfortunately the food was so good we ate it all and had no room left for desert! Next time...we will make sure to try and leave some room...

This was our first visit as we were going to watch a band play. And wanted someone to eat first. What a lovely restaurant, we felt we were on holiday as the restaurant had a very authentic feel about it. The service was lovely and the food was gorgeous. Highly recommended we will definitely be going back 😀👍

We've visited this restaurant regularly and for me it never quite comes up to scratch. Last night the fish wasn't cooked and one of the hot dishes was cold but the atmosphere is good so we will return again. Took advantage of the Monday offer but I question whether it's good value for money in terms of actual food with 2 breads and small dips + 3 tapas + 1 special for two people for £25. Definitely wouldn't have wanted to pay any more than that.

This was our second visit to Byzantium and it was even better than the first visit, when the restaurant was very crowded and the service was slow. This time we were served quickly by a very nice young man, who was very smiley and helpful. The food is wonderful and we will definitely be coming back again.

Our party tried 12 of the dishes and didn't come across a single bad or average one, each dish was as delicious as the last. The waiting staff where amazing and nothing was to much trouble, despite being busy they still always had time for a friendly word. Amazing food and superb staff, really enjoyed our night.
