Good food-- terrific cocktails- What more can you want.... Byblos is a winner, as the title says. The cocktails are very enjoyable and surprisingly they get better the more you have. There is a terrific area to the side, where you can book you own private party or drinks/food. The area could do with a bit of touch up with... More

The decor and atmosphere were prey good when we visited with friends at the weekend. Most impressed with the service from the staff, though never great when you have to vacate your table by a certain time for a second sitting. 8pm in our case and we were delayed arriving on the Saturday evening due to the horrendous "eat st"...

After reading the review we organised the evening and made special arrangements suffice to say these were ignorned, the staff were rude, the food was poor at best and the prices far in excess of the quality and standard on offer. Dont bother people go somewhere nice.

Amazing place with a great vibe! We were greeted and seated by Blair, very friendly and gave great recommendations! Had the chilli prawns amongst other dishes and will definitely be back for more! And also to try some more of those delicious cocktails :)

We went to Byblos for a friend's birthday. All I can say is if you are looking for a cozy, romantic and well decorated with welcoming staff, AND you don't mind paying a bit more, then Byblos is the place. Honestly cannot say anything about the food as it was too normal to be remembered! Poor for me, considering the... More

I've been fortunate enough to dine here a couple of timed each year for the past 4 years. Every visit the food is beautiful, staff lovely and professional and the atmosphere trendy and enjoyable. I recently dined here with a group on a busier night and still, everything was just as great. I thoroughly recommend the tasting plate. You get... More

Nice looking restaurant and bar; seems clean inside. Staff don't smile and don't seem to care for the patrons. Food was below average for the price paid. Starter bread tasted like it was cheap supermarket packet bread. Not very impressive.

We dined at Byblos on a beautiful March evening, on the outside terrace along the river. The Mezza Banquet was simply sensational. All of the food was extremely tasty, and matched perfectly by a South Australian Cab Sauv. There was plenty of food, far too much for the two of is to finish. The atmoshpere was really enjoyable, with plenty... More

Organised a birthday dinner here. Firstly we wanted to organize for our guests to start the evening with a welcome drink of their choice - be it a cocktail, wine, beer or soft drink. When asked if this was something that can be accommodated we were given two options one which did not include cocktails and one which did. The... More
