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

A very nice place, outdoor seating is charming and authentic! The food is excellent, mainly lebanese food with a twist. The service is nice and fast. a must try at night to capture its charm! One small note are to be made about the small rather dark bathrooms that do not suit such a nice place.

The place is awesome, the atmosphere, the music, the staff uniform and attitude and of course the food, mainly the Lebanese dishes made with a modern twist. Even the traditional fattoush was out of this world, the ingredients were very fresh and so tasty, the best I ever had. The only issue we had was the shisha invasion on the... More
