My friend and I went here on our first night in Playa and were very impressed with the food and service. Delicious betebel (beet) salad, my friend even liked it, and he hates beets! Perfectly cooked filet and wonderful wine.

A beautiful French restaurant in Playa. Reasonably priced, great food and a pretty good wine list. The owner Cristian was very attentive and knowledgeable and the meal would compare with anything in the States. Reserve ahead and enjoy a great meal away from the maddening crowd.

Been here 10 years and this was our first time at Byblos. We live in Franc, but this was better than most restaurants we eat at in France. I had oyster's, my wife foie gras, then the duck and shared the combined apple strudel, tarte tatin and apple pancake with ice cream. I think the guy who served us was... More

We visited with a group of five. This was the first time for my wife and me. We all chose the items from the early bird special which is a great deal for 250 pesos. It includes a glass of wine, appetizer, entree and small desert. For each course there are several choices. I had the pork dish which was... More

If you are in Playa Del Carmen Mexico and want a change from Mexican or Italian food try Byblos. Very inexpensive menu if you have dinner before 7, reservation is recommended. Food is excellent, many choices, our favorite was the osso buco and Beef bourguignon, our friends had other choices and were very pleased. If you don't mind eating before... More

Atmosphere is OK at best, VERY snobby and rude owners. I had to wait 15 minutes for a glass of wine, 3o for an appetizer and 1 hour for my meal. When I asked about the time it was taking, I was scolded by the female owner. It is only the husband and wife and 1 bartender who run the... More

You ate an appetizer and an entree and were out of the restaurant in 50 minutes. The people around you were very sorry for how YOU talked to me when I told you after you complained about the time, that the escargot needed 20 minutes to be ready. You got your wine served immediately. You asked to taste first the... More
