This time I had pasta with gorgonzola sauce. It was amazing. We also shared some great apps; escargot, tuna Carpaccio and veggie... read more

Byblos offers delicious, top quality French food that stands out from other restaurants in playa. Hospitality was great, and we enjoyed talking with the owner throughout the night. Try going for an early dinner to take advantage of special pricing for a multi course dinner. We will definitely be going back!

If you are in Playa del Carmen, Mexico BYBLOS Restaurant (French & Wine Bar) is a MUST!! I have known about them for many years now and it was one of my Mother's favorite restaurants. White linens, candles, nice setting! They serve great French style fresh bread, real butter, and an olive/anchovy spread that is great! Anything you order there... More

Byblos is a guaranteed delight. This is our 2nd year eating at Byblos...you will want to make multiple trips during your stay to try dishes on this extensive French menu. We love the mussels with parmesean, homemade pasta and bread, sea bass, scallops, shrimp, crispy duck, and chicken cordon blue. Sylvie the owner - chef is a gracious hostess and... More

For many years we had vacationed in Playa del Carmen and ever since discovering Byblos in the late 1980's, we fell in love with the food and friendliness of Sylvie and Christian. As Playa overdeveloped from the sleepy little town we loved, into a mini-Cancun, we stopped visiting. This April-May brought us back for a convention at Grand Velas, so... More

We've been by numerous times over the years and remarked that it looked nice but never ventured in until tonight, our mistake. Excellent food & service. If you go before 7:30 there is a price fixe dinner with choice of appetizer, entrea, dessert and a glass of wine. One of the best deals in Playa for gourmet dining! We will... More

This French restaurant is so good and spot-on, you'll forget you are in Mexico, not France. Choices are plenty so hard to make a choice, wishing we had another date to return and try again. Owners made us feel so welcome and all the 'locals' raved about all the menu. Said there wasn't anything on the menu that wasn't good.

When I went to the local dog pound, the nice girl said that it was supported by a compassionate French lady who also had a restaurant, Byblos. After bathing at the beach (foot of Constituyentes) I walked to Byblos, arriving precisely at 3, when it opened. Christian served me a bottle of La Cetto Chenin Blanc, I drank and read... More

We returned to Byblos, having eaten there twice on our previous trip. This was our first visit to the new location. Service from the couple who own Byblos was excellent and never invasive. Food arrived promptly and was all freshly made. Soup and pasta entrees were excellent as was the salmon. Wine list was very good, but wines by the... More
