Located in the old souks of Byblos, Locanda is a lebanese restaurant with a modern twist. At a first glance, it gives the impression of coziness. I went there with some friends and the place was crowded. Everyone was smoking shisha or cigarettes but there was no ventilation, it was aweful. The menu was very appealing so we ordered a... More

Good but unusual food, new experience but great one... good atmosphere. The only inconvenience is that you need much time to choose because of the menu despite that I guess their aim is to make all meals ingredients clear to customers... But a plce to be recommended

The ambiance is very different and their setting makes strange people engage in conversations while sitting on long tables. I love their food presentation very much.

I fell in love with the exterior design of the restaurant the moment I arrived Byblos. It's definitely love at first sight. Strangely many people would be excited to see Byblos and restaurant comes later... I am a foodie and always enthusiastic to try something new and what catches my attention. So after I explored Byblos, I was still determined... More

Right in the heart of Byblos, Locanda is a must visit restaurant. Divine Lebanese menu, genuine cuisine offering the customers traditional meals in a sophisticated way. The cooking philosophy looks like it is based on a rustic tradition in a friendly and relaxing environment. Whatever you order for your meal, make sure you leave enough room for the desert.

We ordered a large selection of cold and hot mezze, in addition to the mixed grill. The cuisine is lebanese fusion, but the degree of fusion is minimal so the taste remains authentic. Everything we tried was great except for the lebanese style "spring rolls" served with chedar cheese. The view is nice as the restaurant overlooks an ancient fort.... More
