Was looking forward to visit Byblos in Melbourne, the restaurant was fully booked for a private function inside so we were offered a table in the terrace with heaters on. Selim was our host who looked after us, he was so attentive. Food was just great, reasonably priced and an outstanding view to the Yarra river. Highly recommended for Lebanese... More

We ate here for dinner to catch with friends. It was a nice Melbourne balmy night and we sat outside, which was just lovely with the backdrop of some of the Melbourne skyline and the fire jets from Crown on the hour. The service was great and the food delicious and tasty and the wine just yum....what more could you... More

I have never explored food options on the north side of the river and I am very glad I did. Byblos is in a good location with outdoor seating as well as indoor and the food was amazing and great value. There are a huge amount of food and drink choices!

This restaurant was a positive surprise, starters are amazing specially all the dips and salads, the amount of food in each one of the plates is outstanding, i think we could have eaten just with the starters. The main dishes were also amazing. Not only the food is perfect also the locations, right in front of the river. We were... More

Lovely & cool out door area against the Yarra on a stinking hot day. Beer was cold, the Byblos platter was excellent. A bit expensive, but to be expected in this location. I've never been on the North side of the river before, and will be trying the other restaurants along this strip. Quiet & not crowded, unlike Southbank.

We went out to dinner to Byblos for a family dinner this evening and was left throughly perplexed at how such a seemingly-classy establishment has some of the poorest service I've ever experienced. Waited 25 mins to be served- during this time not one person bothered to ask if we'd even like to order drinks. We had to notify 3... More

A very popular place for food and after work drinks by appearance. Modern Lebanese Restaurant with very delicious food. During a visit to Melbourne recently for a conference found this lovely eatery. It was a Friday evening and appeared quite busy with Melbournians socialising after work but we were able to obtain a table very quickly. The food was delicious... More

I love Mediterranean food and have been to several Middle Eastern restaurants. This is one of the best. Their dishes are very authentic, everything is fresh and very tasty! I've been there twice now and will visit again next time I'm in town. Their falafels are the best I've found anywhere!

Came here for dinner on a Sunday night. We had fattoush, the 3 dips, grilled chicken and lamb, kafta, batata harra, fatayer, sambusek and falafel. The fatoush, dips, batata harra and grilled meats were very good and the other food was quite good too. The garlic dip that came with the grilled meat was amazing. Unfortunately the service let's this... More

We accidentally came across this place while walking along the Yarra and were immediately taken by the position and the people having a drink and a good time. We had a look at the menu and we decided to return for dinner. We were not disappointed. When we first arrived, there was not a free table in the place (and... More
