I told her I wanted the Lebanese wine, she went off. She comes back and says" If I were to tell you we don't have the Lebanese wine, which would you chose... More

This Lebanese tapas has a small, but very nice setting with some outdoor seating options. The food was delicious, and we had a very helpful and friendly server who explained things clearly and made some great suggestions for food, as it was our first time.

I was in the Simpson Bay Yacht Club area and the restaurant that I wanted to go that night was closed. I have been to Byblos before and thought I would try it again, This night there was a hawker at the door and I was escorted to a seat. The service was fine but I was not happy when... More

We love this small restaurant and this year went several times. Better than Crave across the street. The food is great, generous portions, amazing value and a really nice owner that we got to know.

You can't beat the Mhamara here, home made everything, meat pies are to die for. This is a excellent place to have some really great and unique food, hooka is the most relaxing enjoyable treat thru out the meal. Owner and staff are the best around, they are very happy to have you come by, relax and enjoy the company... More

I visited this restaurant mid-week for dinner with friends and there was a wine tasting event taking place, so we sat on the terrace, which was intimate and surprisingly warm. The service was excellent and the food was top notch. I've eaten a lot of Lebanese food in several cities and this held its own for freshness, variety, and presentation.... More

We accidently found this restaurant while walking behind the main street. Excellent authentic Lebanese food. We tried as many items as possible on the menu, and had dinner two of our seven nights in St. Maarten. Everything was freshly made and very tasty. Hummus, tabouleh, baba ganoujh, kibbeh, kabobs, we tried them all. And a perfect ending: Baklava and Turkish... More
