Byblos has been around for a long time and for good reason: they are very good at what they do. The food is great and the service is good. If you like eastern Mediterranean food, Byblos is a must.

Dropped in for dinner with family and out of town guests. We enjoyed the hummus as an appetizer. We ordered the Gyro Platter, two Chicken Shawarma plates, and the Falafel Salad. All were delicious. This is a nice family friendly restaurant in Old Metairie.

This place is excellent! Wonderfully fresh food with excellent spices. The Mediterranean hummus is great, the Greek salad is delicious, and the drunken haloumi will blow you away. I get the gyros platter. The slices are thick, tender with a slight char on the edges....More

Wanted a good meal that wasn't typical NOLA food and it came highly recommended by locals. Had a late lunch that was just yummy. Service is fast - servers are attentive and friendly. Take a short drive to Metairie and enjoy a fabulous meal.
