True Italian

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.

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.

I went with friends to have lunch here for the second time. On both occasions we all agreed that the food was superb and the whole experience was excellent. Everyone had different fish dishes for main course and they were all very good. It was so nice to be on the terrace overlooking the mediterranean and the service was fine.... More

We ate there last Wednesday May 7th and were completely disappointed by the whole experience. Could it be that the owner had a day off, or the chef having a bad day...We had no sense of welcome or warmth from any of the staff; maitre d', waiter, or la Mamma. We arrived early, and were 'told' quite bluntly to go... More

I was recommended this place by a friend and have been now many times. I live in France and it is about a 45 minute drive from Cannes or 20 minutes from Monte Carlo. Prices are about 50% less than normally seen in France (100% of Monte Carlo!) but expect to see well heeled Monte Carlo restaurant guests that come... More
