We've been to Byblos 3 times now and waited for the latest visit before reviewing. We've enjoyed every dish we've been served here. The staff is friendly and knowledgable about the menu, the food tastes great and the location is fantastic. We really cannot fault this restaurant.
the mixed grill is a fantastic base to start the meal and we've tried many of the other dishes. The wait staff always give us good advice. One of us is a coeliac so gluten free knowledge is imperative when we eat out. Fortunately Byblos shines with many gluten free dishes to try.
We've even had our kids (aged 12-15) here and they tried all the dishes.
We genuinely enjoy our time here and look forward to going back. We consider this one of Brisbane's best restaurants.

Stumbled across this restaurant and now can't stop going! We haven't been very adventerous with our food selection though as they have a platter for 2 and it has everything we love about Middle Eastern food - exceptional and very good value! The bar area is a lovely area to relax and have a few during the day and then in the evening they step it up.
I would recommend making a booking at the weekend as can get very busy - well worth a wait if you have to though!

This would have to be the worst food in Brisbane.

This is a joint run by no-neck ex nobodies that want to sell second rate food and drinks at above average prices.

Stay away. The sales pitch is a gimmick. Bad food, bad service, and bad attitude.

If you disagree, a no-neck will intimidate you.

Stay away.

I love Byblos! It is situated at Portside in Hamilton, a suburb a few minutes drive from the city. Located on the water where the ships dock, the restaurant is in a great spot and has a fantastic decor. It's also near the cinema so great entertainment before or after a meal.

It is Lebanese & Mediterranean with the option of dining in the formal restaruant or in the lounge area. I love the tapas style food - their potatoes and chicken wings are my fave!

They apparantly have Sunday afternoon $10 cocktail sessions which I'm yet to discover. I recommend this place to everyone!

After a dreadful night at Belvedere spent next evening at Byblos - great setting, great decor, friendly staff and a fabulour atmosphere makes this a top spot for a well priced evening's meal.

Thank you and happily go again
