Friendly but unobtrusive service. Food curated by waiter who did an outstanding job of diverse flavours and hot/cold dishes. Everything was fresh, tasty, and well-presented. Would return in a heartbeat - seems like the perfect place for larger groups of friends and co-workers.

Byblos is the best lebanese restaurant i have tried in Jeddah so far. The raw materials' quality is immaculate and all the dishes are very tasty. If you like lebanese cuisine, it is a must visit. Ambience is also very well taken care of and service is really good. Prices are above average, but worth it.

Byblos is a very classic restaurant that has a Lebanese menu. The food is very oriental and definitely the best "Faroog mesahab" I ever had. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is very nice.

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
