I find it the best place in Byblos... you can enjoy a great meal from lebanese food to sandwiches and platters.. really love this place and you can sit outside in the souk or in a private garden. I strongly recommend it. And not to forget... great prices

A familiar and traditional place to enjoy food with the family. Fresh fatouch and taboule that makes your mouth drool. The ambience of the restaurant is super cool, you can have fun watching the busy streets of Byblos while sipping on a bottle of beer . A great experience indeed and highly recommended on Sundays ! Enjoy

I visit this restaurant from time to time in byblos. It has great food and a wide variety from lebanese mezze to international cuisine. The service and the prices are okay. I like sitting in the garden area... more cozy and friendly. Recommend it.
