We were greeted immediately by the owner who absolutely loves having patrons enjoy their entire experience in this delightful Iranian restaurant. We were given lovely description of the food choices, best options for our hunger level and were given time to enjoy the ambiance - no rushing whatsoever. The food was delicious, as was the recommended wine. We were all... More

Nice environment, friendly and polite waitress, relatively expensive, good quality food. However, if you are hoping to try Persian (Iranian) food, the Byblos is not even close! We ordered "Barg and koobideh kabob" (beef and ground beef), didn't taste like Iranian kabobs. I would say they serve Mediterranean food instead. I left my iPhon 5s and went back one hour... More

After driving six hours from New York in the dead of winter, my girlfriend and I sought out some brunch to refuel and kick off our weekend in Montreal. The relaxing vibes and pleasantly designed restaurant struck the perfect chord for what we were looking for, and most importantly, the food was quite good as well. The rose petal jam... More

Ever wonder what breakfast is like in Iran? Stop in to Byblos in the Plateau to find out. Very tasty and different for sure but served with a smile and all the info you need to know to how to eat it all. Very nice relaxed atmosphere. Enjoyable.

The name led me to think it was Lebanese, but no, it's Iranian! Managed by a family that welcomes you warmly... the menu looks appealing. I had Feta with eggs, a first for me and a delicious one. Theirs jams are various, a bit liquidy though. Their arabic coffee comes too sweet, for my taste. one has to mention 'no... More

When there once for brunch and the food was delicious. It is different from a standard brunch, with homemade jams and delicious eggs. Definitively i will go back.

The menu is amazing and diverse. The coffee was amazing. Only had a little bite but the hummus I had was amazing. The resturant is spacious and offers a lot of different setting oppositions. Was able to sit at at table for two with two baby strollers and it was roomy. Definitely heading back to try more food.

I almost missed this cafe, so unremarkable on the outside. I was there for Sunday breakfast, about 9 AM, and was quickly seated. The service was a little slow, but the food was great. I had the breakfast special: an omelet with a basket of Persian breads and homemade jam. All were delicious. I would definitely return.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
