Byblos represents a marriage of Eastern Mediterranean cuisine with strong influences from both traditional and local ingredients, using time-honored classic cooking techniques and modern methods. Our chef has created dishes that showcase the regionally-specific spices and flavours of the Eastern Mediterranean seaboard to craft a menu that will be a true coastal and cultural mosaic, served family style in a convivial atmosphere.

Why we love it

Executive chef: Ted Corrado

With its family-style menu and century-old building backdrop, media favourite Byblos is equally well-suited for special occasions and delicious, everyday dining. Eastern Mediterranean flavours are executed in modern ways featuring luscious ingredients like saffron liqueur and date molasses.

    We've been to Byblos twice recently and both times we had delicious food, great choices, and really friendly and helpful service. The downtown location is a great spot for pre theatre dining.

    The quality of the food was great. However, the portions were tiny, and it was very overpriced for the portions they offered. There was also barely any variety on the menu. It was not authentic Lebanese food. We would have had to order and pay much more than we did (which was already a lot) to be full.

    The environment was very classy and lovey however the food was a bit too extra and the flavour was all over the place. The spices and sauces used was not the best choice.

    Small bug on the side of salad plate! And food was sub par at best. This isn't the same beautiful restaurant it used to be. The location is so dingy now too. I was taking my cousin out so I didn't want to make a big deal about the bug but I was horrified!

    Nice place; good food, but did not quite live up to the expectations. The olives were tasty. The lamb shoulder was very tender and literally melted in the mouth, the cauliflower was interesting, but the whole ensemble lacked distinction. The table service was good.
