One of our favorite restaurants in Byblos. My wife and I are regular customers and we always have a great time there with friends. An excellent well-designed menu, special Lebanese and oriental food with a twist, delicious dessert, professional, friendly, and welcoming staff.

Nice setup overlooking Byblos Citadel. Good Lebanese cuisine but with a twist, not your typical presentation. Generally good food and service.

Lovely meals and it's situated right next to the crusaders castle in Jbeil. The desserts are wonderful, you must try the ice cream-pancake dessert, looks amazing and totally worth the calories.
