This was by far one of the most amazing dinners I've ever had. I went for my birthday with family (two of which were also celebrating their birthday). Food and service was 10/10. Complimentary limoncello and grappa! Lights were dimmed as they sang happy birthday and brought out a cake. Fabulous view, I would definitely recommend booking a table!

Absolutely good with wonderful view and local favorite. Hard to get table. Reasonable prices. Very good lobster pasta and lots of fish. Easy to forget everything and spend hours, so enjoy outstanding desserts. Easy parking.

A group of us went again to Byblos. We had originally been in 1995, again in 2006 and now 2015. This is a true Italian experience; it is not a tourist depot and everything is in Italian...But, that means authentic. We have only ever had delicious meals and the great thing about these kinds of restaurants is one can improvise... More

Been here a few times over the years. We were surprised when we couldn't get a table until 21.30 on a february sunday. When we arrived the place was packed. We were given a complimentary drink while we waited for our table which we sat down at exactly at 21.30... Amazing lobster and pasta, pork mignon en croute and incredible... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by a number of people but had a very disappointing experience. The location is great overlooking the sea but that was the best part of the evening. The service throughout was poor as was the food with the exception of the dessert. I can only imagine the restaurant was having an off-day.

If you have ever done some power shopping for leather and cashmere at the Friday Ventimiglia outdoor market, you know a) you will want a good meal to relax and forget your sins b) don't try to lunch in Ventimiglia on Fridays. Local friends led us to the next town, Bordighera / Ospedaletti, and we enjoyed an excellent meal on... More

Visiting our friends in Provence, the four of us decided to dine at this restaurant for Sunday lunch as they had heard rave reviews from their friends. When we arrived, Byblos did not disappoint: a table with a wonderful view and the room had a fantastic ambiance. Service was good to start: the water, bread basket and wine quickly arrived.... More

Visited for lunch and taken by the wonderful setting and first class décor. Then the food surpassed all expectations. Left my camera on a seat and returned two hours later to find it under lock and key waiting for me. A second night time visit was even better with the waitress overhearing "Buon Compleanno"" asking if it was a birthday... More

Excelent, from the warm welcome to the kind arrivederci, passing by a great sea view, the best seafood, good prices and professional service. But be careful, once one gets used to this standard there is pretty much nowhere else to go dine in riviera ponente, unless one gets ready for complete disappoinment. Byblos, year after year is a superb choice.
