“Nice location and food”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Very nice Location near the sea on the port, the sea food is fresh and they service Lebanese and Mediterranean food. It is a bit expensive but it is ok since the value is fine and the quality of food is good. Nice place during sunset!!!

“Great Location”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Food & service is better than the other restaurants around, if you can get a table right by the Port of Byblos panoramic view, go ahead, but usually they are always busy and reservations is needed. unforgettable experience

“Will go back”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

situated on the harbor of Jbeil next to a chain of similar restaurants serving fresh fish dishes with the typical Lebanese mazzeh . The set up is simple but the food and service was great. if Iam back in Lebanon I will defiantly go there again.

“Stunning view, lovely meal.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Absolutely stunning night time view of the Old Port.

Excellent choice of fresh fish for the main, I thought the Salade Bab-El Mina was a lovely starter. There is also an alternative section to the menu for those that don't care for fish (small but enough of a selection.)

Nice and varied selection of local and imported wines.

We had a fabulous time and finished the evening with dessert and Arak.

Service was polite, friendly and efficient.

“Good but way overpriced”
Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

The quality of the food was good, but paying about 65$ per person was a surprise. Not to mention that the fish arrived long after we had finished with the mezza. Will be looking for a better and cheaper fish restaurant in Byblos next time we are there!
