Amazing experience

After a walk around Byblos, stopped by for a lunch and some drinks to celebrate my birthday. Good environment, nice food with good varieties of starters, main course and deserts. Nice view to the Mediterranean.

This place is not pure Lebanese food. For example they do not offer tabbouleh and their fattouch is not your typical fattouch but the food is amazing and the quality is top notch. Wait till you get to the desert because you will have to spend 20 minutes trying to pick:)

The location is very nice, especially in summer nights, overlooking to Jbeil citadel. We couldn't orer the main plates because we were full from the Mezze plates, which are various & originally presented, but no special flavor in it as you'll expect from the presentation. I would rank it 3+++ or 4-

In a rainy day, the selection of Locanda was superb. The food is great, the portion is big, the variety is remarkable. We had a few starters which we could not resist to order. The main course was great, especially the Mallifeh fish.

I love the fusion dishes they serve, some of the best here actually. View is nice, and interior is very complimentary with the surrounding. BUT the place can get a little too crowded and loud, and the service slows down eventually. Tip: Absolutely sit outside if there is availability!

Visiting Jbeil at this time of year to see the Christmas preparations is a must, so I went there with my wife at the evening, a friend of mine recommended Locanda for dinner. Truly great advise. Great atmosphere and location (by the castle and few meters from the old city), excellent food with huge portions. Every dish is a twist... More

This restaurant is a bit pricy!! It is located in the heart of Jbeil Souks so no need to describe the amazing atmosphere. As for the food, each dish on the menu seems to be very unique.The lebanese food is prepared with a twist.You cannot but try every single item on the menu!! The portions are quite good .The service... More
