It's a real treat to find a place with a great vegetarian tapas selection on the menu. As an added bonus Byblos also has the best wine selection by the glass in Simpson Bay. The atmosphere is friendly and the staff always welcoming.

We tried this restaurant after seeing it many times during the morning when I went to zee best next door (for their amazing almond croissants). Lucky choice, the food and funky atmosphere is great. And prices are very reasonable. We tried the meat pie appetizer, chicken kabob and lamp shawarma, all super good. Since it was Friday they had this amazing belly dancer that danced with a flaming bowl and she kept putting her hands and feet into the flames, unbelievable!

My wife and I stumbled across this little gem of a place purely by accident and I had to almost drag my wife in (it is off the main road so is not obvious).Once she discovered the tantalising choice of Mediterranean dishes she was hooked and we had a most enjoyable meal accompanied by a belly dancer (Friday nights) which was a real surprise. Not a big restaurant so it was friendly and intimate. Many tables were smoking from hookah pipes which gave the place an extra ambience. Shame we didn't find the place earlier. If you like something other than ribs, chicken or fish then his is a must.

This food is tantalizing to say the least. Really, really quite yummy. Vegetarian and meat eaters can enjoy great food in the same place. Nice presentation with a staff eager to please. I will be back again and again.

When Byblos just opened its doors, there was a wonderful write up in the Daily Herald, which peeked my interest. So we went and discovered that the article was spot on. First impression, the location is set back from the road so it can catch you by surprise, although it is surrounded by well established businesses so not isolated. Setting is intimate with décor capturing the essence of the Mediterranean with hookahs scattered throughout. The staff give a warm welcome and offer seating indoors or out. One might expect a limited menu given the size of the restaurant, but we were pleasantly surprised with a variety of selections. We couldn't decide and ordered a handful of items to share for two, which honestly I think works best. Highly recommend the homemade garlic sauce and hot sauce to accompany the dishes. And most definitely recommend the baklava to round things off. After our first successful dining experience we have returned and are now loyal customers. This is the type of place where the owner and staff genuinely go out of their way to ensure you are satisfied with your dining experience and the chef/owner finds great pride in serving fresh ingredients prepared daily. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. This is the type of place you find and keep. An added bonus is live entertainment, live music on many nights and belly dancing on other nights. The more I come to this place, I find more reasons to love it. Highly recommend, especially with a group of friends. Great place to get a bottle of wine, share a few platters, and have a leisurely meal and prices are very reasonable. Counting down the days to baklava!
