This was our second visit at Byblos, and it only confirmed our initial opinion. Surprisingly large menu, without compromising the quality. Very pleasant owners and the rest of the crew. Prices a little higher than the surrounding Mexican joints, but worth every penny!

This place is managed by the owner, who is the chef and has been offering authentic gourmet food for 14 years in Playa. We had the most amazing gratin seafood, rabbit, and a memorable dessert in a cozy romantic environment. Away from the over commercialized area of la Quinta, this cute little restaurant offers the best french food we had... More

We were a party 8 and we all enjoyed the majority of our dishes. The risotto, fettuccine, fish, rabbit, salads were all enjoyable as well as our appetizers. Didn't care for the asparagus soup and would definitely not recommend the creme brûlée. The restaurant is located a street off the 5th Avenue, so it wasn't as crowded. But since the... More

Thank you for your comments. I am just surprised for your comment about the creme brûlée, as it is one of our customers favorite dessert. I would like to know what you didn't like about it? We prepare it with fresh vanilla beans and it is fresh prepared in the morning. It is the traditional French recipe. Why didn't you... More

This was our second visit to Byblos this year as we had been there in March. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner on the romantic patio. Top notch service as there was only one other couple who left half hour into our dinner. The prix fixe menu cannot be beat- 250 pesos gets you a glass of wine, appetizer, entree and... More

Once again, we were very happy with our meal at Byblos in Playa del Carmen. It has been a couple of years, but Byblos still lives at the top of our list for restaurants to visit during our stay in Playa. The atmosphere of Byblos is very romantic and service is top notch, without being fussy. Against our willpower, we... More

When we get on the airplane to Mexico we start talking about the duck at Byblos. We've been patrons for many years and we almost always order the same thing. It's just that good. This place is one of our favorite restaurants in the whole world and we highly recommend it. We wouldn't miss a dinner at Byblos on any... More

I ate once at Byblos back when it was around the actual Thompson Hotel, and I was impressed by its cuisine. So when I saw it was back on the 10th & 24th without doubt I invite my French Queen to have a dinner there... Amazing . It's hard to choose when you now anything would be delicious. It's very...

Another wonderful meal at Byblos! Started with the Fois Gras with Calvados, and grilled Salmon with sides of mashed potatoes and leeks. Ended with the most beautiful strawberries sliced and a bit of vanilla ice cream. Can't wait for my next trip to Cancun and a 5 Star dinner at Byblos!
