I have been already twice in this great Lebanese Restorant! They have really a very nice touch on everything they serve. If you like Lebanese food you will enjoy it very much. If you haven't tried try it, it is worth the experience! Of course being one of the fanciest restaurants in Jeddah it is a bit on the expensive... More

We loved this venue - a delightful mix of cool contemporary blends seamlessly with Arabic décor. A light and airy venue with plenty of room to spread out and relax. If you like Lebanese food this is a real treat. The menu is wide and varied, the servings ample and well presented. Each course offers many tempting treats. The restaurant... More

The food which I ordered was quite good but not the quantity. The prices are extremely high. The size of the bread is much smaller than the regular one. The drinks are expensive too.

Contemporary sleek design, with a nod to Arabic decor details Byblos presents a cool, quiet ambiance with international dining standards. I have been here a couple of times since 2006 and the restaurant does not disappoint in serving great Lebanese food and understated service. Grills and desserts were excellent. For some the discreet distance staff and service style the restaurant... More

After being a regular here when I visit Jeddah, it wasn't all that two nights ago. 1) Shesha was very poor 2) food was average 3) dessert was poor 4) and the waiter did his best to push us to order more than we could eat. I even referred to the food we didn't finish half of it, yet he... More
