This sultry portside restaurant/club was heavily booked and we dropped in for a drink. Really good vibe , quick and efficient service by professional barstaff. It is a little hard to find as you have to walk passed or even though another restaurant to get there. Just about any spirit you want they have it here come have a look... More

I have gone to Byblos for a few occasions now ! It is just simply the nicest experience. Eat your meals overlooking the water and the food is some of the best Mediterranean food I have come across in all of Brisbane ! The cocktails are awesome to ! Will 100% be back !

Ok so lets be honest, the first time I came here was for the cheap beers between 4pm and 6pm. $6.00 little creatures, come on who wouldn't? Anyway this was my first year coming to Tafe and actually sitting down for a meal here, and now that this is my final year, I am sad that I never came here... More

First time visit here. So glad we found this restaurant. The food was great - tasty, full of flavour and good portions. The only drawback are the parking conditions set by Portside. This was a sore point. You get your parking validated to get 3 hours free, but if you stay longer than that you pay an exorbitant price. For... More

We had bookedfor four on a Tuesday evening but the place was pretty empty when we got there. Great bar service (except one error on delivering wrong beer), and we sat outside soaking in the river views, enjoying drinks and nibbles. Moved inside to dine and couldnt fault any of the various dishes we had so a job well done... More

I visited Byblos early on February and enjoyed it again. The food was lovely and varied but unfortunately the service was very slow. There seemed to be a shortage of waiting staff but they tried hard to cope.

We were in a reasonably large group, they did a reasonable good job keeping everyone orders together however most of ours was forgotten about with bits and pieces coming randomly . After asking a couple of time where our lamb was (by this time we were hungry) when it did finally come out it was raw (not pink but raw)... More
