My fiancé and I went to Byblos for the first time last night after living in Playa on and off for 2 years. I can't believe it took us this long to find it! This place was awesome. Shockingly the whole restaurant was empty on a Saturday night. Now I know it is slow season here but come on people,... More

I lived in Paris and currently live in New York City. My friend who leaves in Playa suggested this small restaurant. The owner is Sylvie Goetz and her French "plats" have a touch of different parts of the world. She serves a delicious olive tapanade (so commom place now in French restos). I had a fish (robelo). I believe it... More

This is the second time we dined here this year. Both were amazing experiences. The service is excellent. The food is the best. We sat inside both times. Outside may get a little load because of 10th avenue.

This is yet another great review of Byblos. I'm lucky enough to live in Cancun and get down to Byblos every now and again. This was a "going away" dinner for my nephew who is headed back to his home town and his choice was "Byblos". I had the duck breast, my favorite-never fails dish. We shared the mussels and... More

We ended up here late afternoon, after fellow residents at our resort recommended it. They did not steer us wrong. The escargot was the best ever, even asked for more bread to soak up the butter sauce. The prices are very reasonable. We are at the grand mayan, with only a few dinner options, and even with the $45-50 round... More

The owner/chef Sylvie and her husband Christian welcomed us in, and we were immediately charmed by the warm vibe in the dining room. After looking at the menu and getting some recommendations on food and wine from the chef herself, we had high expectations for the food - and they were totally blown away. We ordered appetizers, main courses and... More

My wife and I have been staying at a nearby resort and eating "gourmet" meals from an all-inclusive package. The meals have not been gourmet and we needed to have a great meal. We first went to Oh Lala but they had no reservations available. The kind man at the restaurant recommended Byblos and it was excellent. Sylvie and her... More

The best French restaurant here; pates, foie gras, kidney, lamb, rabbit, seafood, and much more. Excellent wines, cooled if desired and then decanted. The service was perfect. Not every time has been perfect; but, I have seldom had a better meal in Playa. They have a low priced menu from 3:00 to 7:30.

If you want something else than the crowded 5th avenue, this is the place to be! Very nice atmosphere, excellent service and great food and wines. It was our best in playa!
