Every dish is a taste sensation

Went there on a Sunday afternoon for their happy 2 hours during which cocktails are only $10 and beers $5. My wife had a glass of Tortar Sav Blanc for $5 as well. Tried the relatively new Sharwama which is a delicious lamb dish - fabulous! We also had usual Tabouleh salad( always a huge serving... read more

Staff at Byblos were very welcoming and went out of their way to make sure we were well looked after. It was mist welcome after a long day.

What a funky place this is. Wandered round the corner at Portside and there was this wonderful saxophone music drifting towards us. So right away we were drawn to this bar. We sat outside to start with and didn't realise there was table service. On Sundays they have $5 beer and wine. Bonus! One thing we were impressed with is... More

Was a bit worried about this after reading previous reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. Service was outstanding, food was delicious and good value, and the cocktails were out of this world. The extensive drinks list is also a bonus. Thanks to Eilijah who served us throughout the night! Would definitely done here again.

Before we decided to go to Byblos for dinner, my husband and I read the reviews on trip advisor. Honestly, we were influenced by the negative reviews especially about the service, so we finally decided to try it ourselves. The minute I walked in Byblos everything was great, the waitress who's name is Mandy welcomed us in and was really... More

Nice location, decor and ambience. Good selection of tapas and share plates and good quality food. Not cheap but worth it for something different and new. Would come back again.

Again the food does not cease to amaze me. I organised our Christmas Party at this restaurant and everyone in our group commented on the flavours in the food. We started with Fatoush, Bathenjan El Rahib and a trio of dips, we then had chicken and lamb skewers, Batata harra and a mixture of Fataya and Pumpkin Kebi with lamb... More

The worse place to received such poor service. food was average. After 15 minutes of waiting to get a drink, I pointed out that it has been 10 minutes. The response was "if you are going to be like this you won't get served" I wasn't sure if that member of staff was stress, racist or has anything against women.... More
