Went there Friday night for dinner with my wife, daughter and son in law. We had 3 appetizers-tuna carpaccio with sesame, 3 kinds of pate, and a salmon mixture of raw and smoked salmon. All were delicious. My wife had escargot, my daughter had ravioli stuffed with duck, my son in law had seafood risotto and I had chicken cordon... More

One of the best duck dishes that I have had. The service was attentive and the food was very nice. Excellent choice for fine dining in Playa. Thanks for... More

We visit Playa every year and always head to Byblos. The food is well prepared and tasty. Don't miss the duck, it is amazing. The owners always make sure you are taken care of while you enjoy a leisurely meal. Byblos is a must visit if you want fabulous food in Playa.

Fondly remembering Byblos from a diner there in Dec. '15, my husband I returned exactly a year later and had a truly glorious experience. I began with a cream of tomato soup that was exceptional, and so hugely superior to any I've had elsewhere (such a relief from the thick mess that usually passes for this soup in America!!). My...

We visit Playa Del Carmen several times a year as we have a condo here. Byblos has been one of our favorite restaurants in Playa for 10 years at least. Though the restaurant location changed 3 years ago, the food and ambience are still top notch. The menu is so varied that we usually eat there twice during each visit.... More

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!
