This is my second time in Byblos, the reason for me to be back here because the food was so tasty and delicious. But my second visit it was not really fresh and oily. It was a disappointment. The ambience was alright but while the restaurant was empty we were sat next to the kitchen. ???

Byblos never disappoints. The food is delicious! Always cooked to perfection and well seasoned. The staff was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant was accommodating to our needs when we wanted to move our reservation up by half and hour and when we wanted to be seated upstairs. Will be back!

Outstanding cocktails and delicious tapas style dishes. We had the roasted beet dip, the lamb ribs (WOW!), beef short ribs, roasted Brussel sprouts and black truffle rice. The flavours of all of the dishes were out of this world!!!

I can't wait to come back! Highly recommend!

Food was amazing, our server was spectacular, but there was quite a long wait to get us seated even though we had a reservation. A heads up to anyone that would consider this info useful: there is a cake plating fee if you bring your own birthday cake/dessert.

Staff was extremely accommodating in re-arranging seating due to weather concerns. Also very accommodating in terms of checking on allergies and surprised us a very sweet birthday treat. Love the quiet and relaxing ambiance. Great spot for a date as you can actually hear your partner speak. Will definitely be back soon!!!
