If I had to choose a favorite cuisine, which is like choosing a favorite child, I’d have to go with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern. I’m sorry Mexican, Italian & Sushi, mommy still loves you! Byblos is housed in the Shorecrest Building on Collins with an eclectic decor that I’m now realizing I didn’t fully experience in the dark of my 9 pm dinner reservation.
Order a bunch of little plates to get a full range of flavors. My faves were by far the hamachi with jalapeño labneh, Spanish octopus with biber chili vinaigrette and preserved lemon and the absolutely melt-in-your-mouth black truffle flatbread with buffalo mozzarella and halloumi cheeses. But, the pièce de résistance my friends was far and away the rock shrimp rice. Please, when I go, bury me in a casket full of this rice. The grains were buttery and filled with spicy sujuk sausage, crispy chicken skin, scallions and green peas (for health?).

Perfect harmony between ambience, food and service. Visited Byblos a few times during my stay in Miami. As a Mediterranean cuisine lover, I was really impressed with delicious plates (roasted lamb shoulder is to die for) and cocktails. Really enjoyed authentic and vibrant atmosphere - you definitely feel cosy and relaxed. Great interior design but patio was my favourite - great vibes all around. Lastly, the service was exemplary, definitely made my experience a great one. Would love to come back again!

We enjoyed our meal at Byblos... a nice "house"-like setting among the glitzy South Beach hotel scene, and very good food. We recommend the red snapper special main course, crispy artichokes, and duck rice. Unfortunately service was quite slow...

Visited Byblos as it was so close to our hotel and the reviews were glowing.
We were definitely not disappointed.
The restaurant inside is beautifully decorated and the service was fantastic
As a vegetarian I have struggled to find options however Byblos had me spoilt for choice.
Food was packed full of flavour and presented extremely well
The place is pricey however well worth the price tag
Would definitely return
