The staff will check your appearance from head to toes to approve or disapprove your presence in the "what they believe a fancy restaurant". Pretentiousness and nose up staff. truly a no-no in this business. Good Lebanese food but Lebanese food is simple, fresh, and inexpensive. We were not dealing with salmon, caviar or oysters. Also be aware they will... More

When Byblos started, the expectation from laylaty group was a smash hit, and for a while it did provide some good food, but after a while it ended up to be an expensive restaurant that provides above average food. Lebanese food is about freshness of ingridants, quality of meat, unfortunately the meat dishes they provide are best to day average.... More

The atmosphere is amazing, the decoration , the welcoming way, excellent waiters , but for me I wouldn't recommended as food. I've tried so many dishes but all were not even close to my expectations . As it's has a nice atmosphere I would recommend it for coffee and tea

nothing special about the food. only the place is so exclusive that makes the food so pricey. This restaurant is so quiet, so it's not suitable if you plan to have a chit chat in a big group or bring babies and kids with you.

It is one of the best places in Jeddah. Prestigious and chick; the place to take your guests to and be proud of it. Stick to the mezzo variety of starters. Get some cold starters, then some hot ones and half the groups' number of main dishes. So if you are a party of 10, 5 or 6 main courses... More
