This was the first time the four of us had visited this restaurant. The location was great and will be really nice in summer sitting outside with a view of the river. The restaurant is large with many tables and that maybe part of the problem. The service was shocking. The waiter was quick to... read more

Service from the guy/manager was great but the waitresses was pretty average. The food has also lost its freshness that it's once had and the portions have shrunk. It's a... More

We were early and they were almost empty, however when we left, they still had few customers and the othe adjoining places were packed. Obviously the locals know, the food was old, unpleasant, stale, I suspect made some previous days back - worryingly so. I was there years ago and all was good but, give it a wide berth, as... More

This is a nice place for good food. I believe that they were quite understaffed which resulted in a lot of waiting

I celebrated my 50th Birthday with a Banquet lunch for 60 people at Byblos last weekend. I must say I was delighted with the event and judging by all the compliments I have received since, so were my guests.The events manager Brooke was extremely helpful in arranging everything including specially made Pimm's cups on arrival. The staff on the day... More

The well stocked bar and beautiful couches give a great feel, makes for a very Happy Hour !!! Right around the corner from the Dendy cinema at Portside it's a great spot to have a pre- or post-move drink.
