From the moment myself and friends walked in the door we were so disappointed. We had booked a table so we waited to be seated, 5 mins later we were attended to but with the worst ever attitude. The wait staff were appalling and down right rude. We ordered share plates of skewers, and squid..everything was over cooked and dry!!... More

Been here many time for dinners, birthday functions and just plain old amazing cocktails. They are consistently excellent in their food and drink delivery, wtih a drinks menu that will blow your mind. Traditional Turkish food is lovely... view is great, especially as the sun goes down over the river.

An impromptu decision to go to Byblos for Sunday Lunch meant a CityCat to Bretts Wharf and a short walk to Byblos. Restaurant was busy and noisy inside, particularly the piped music. We asked for an outside table which we were given after a five minute wait. Service was very slow to come to the table but eventually a bright... More

Overlooking the river on Portside this restaurant delivers great food, atmosphere and good service. We enjoyed this type of eating either our group as it gave everyone choices. The outdoor tables whilst cool on a summer night can be noisy, but there are options and private areas.

Very tasty food at reasonable prices. Good drinks list to compliment Turkish food. Try the desert platter for something special

We ate here last year for a family lunch. Recommended by the cousies. It was absolutely delicious. Amazing food, so tasty but it could be that I am a sucker for anything Lebanese or Turkish. The location was perfect right by the water, totally enjoyable.

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.
