“Very nice food.”
Reviewed August 20, 2010

this restaurant serves a variety of Lebanease dishes and middle eastern seafood.it is overlooking the old harbor and the main road.the view is just stunning and that was incouraging to try lots of defferent dishes and drinks.every thing was about right.we thought it is a bit over priced but the food and the view paid for that.

“Fabulous place for lunch in trendy Byblos”
Reviewed October 13, 2009

One of the best seafood restaurants in the world. It is mainly seafood chosen by you and cooked the way you like it, brought directly from the sea in front which makes everything extremely fresh. Starters are mainly Lebanese typical stuff with a seafood twist. For pudding you get free fresh and chilled fruit, or you can chose something, mainly French, from the menu, like chocolate fondant, mousse a chocolate, etc.
The only problem is the service. It is good buy as the place gets extremely busy, the many waiters struggle to cope. Yet, this add to the charm of the place. It is 'the place' to lunch and be seen in Byblos, only a 30 minute drive from Beirut. I had lunch here 8 years ago and again this weekend and was pleased to see the place is as good as ever.
