Great atmosphere

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.

Food was OK for me, most on the table loved their food though. Service was terrible. We couldn't get served to order drinks. All i could see was our waiter walking around with a jug of water all afternoon. I walked up to the manager to ask for drinks who was very rude and then drinks took so long that... More

We were looking for a place on the river for a light lunch. Never having been to Byblos before, we decided to share the mixed grill, a selection of skewers served with tabbouli, hommous, skordalia and breads. Perfect! The lamb was so good that we will be back for a dinner before long....and the dips were delicious. The staff were... More

The atmosphere here was great for a long awaited catch up with friends. The wine list extensive and the waiter very knowledgeable about the wines and gave some recommendations which really hit the mark. Wait staff also well informed about the menu choices and we were able to alter the menu to suit ourselves. We each ordered different choices but... More

Looking for somewhere to eat prior to attending Cirque du Soleil, decided to try Byblos. It was a Wednesday evening, so probably not that busy, but our experience was great, from our booking to the event. Great spot on the riverside, nicely appointed, interesting menu, good beverage and wine list. We had the platter for two, a variety of Middle... More

We came here before going to Cirque du Soleil. The kitchen was open early enough for us to enjoy a relaxed meal before the circus started. The setting is lovely at night with the river and the city lights. The meals were a good size and well priced. I was going to go to Max Brenner for desert, but Ishan's... More

I have never been to this restaurant before now, but happened to have to events to attend in the past week. I really loved it. Both times the food was fabulous, cocktails were great and variety of beverages larger than anywhere I have been in a long time. The atmosphere is great with a lovely view across the river and...

The waiting staff were most helpful in explaining the menu content. The food was very good and the attention of the staff was very good even although it was very busy. It was an easy way to taste food from a different culture.

We ate here last night . Very impressed with the variety of menu and the food we ordered came out promptly and was presented nicely . The spice balance was spot on. Best food we have had in a while. Attentive service also.

We enjoyed a lunch of authentic Lebanese dishes, sitting in the sunshine on the river bank. The service was great, the food delicious and the decor tasteful.
