This would be it. Why? It is so slow. Went here with a big group of friends, every time we ordered a drink it took forever to come out, in fact, one of the drinks took almost an hour to come out. Food was alright along with the view but given the lackluster pace of everything, I'd probably avoid it.

Called in last minute with no booking. Host was really helpful and found us a table despite being fully booked. I now know why they were fully booked. Gorgeous food, perfect setting by the river and very reasonably priced. Will definitely go back. Breads,dips, skewers were all very tasty. The dessert tasting plate is also really good. One of the...

The best way to enjoy the Aussie summer is to sit by the river/sea and enjoy your drink and food. You can get all this with lunch at Byblos. We ordered their vegetarian and chicken platters with our drinks. The view is amazing and so was the food. The portions were large and the service was good. We sat out... More

Took 10 to Byblos for a Christmassy business lunch. Comfortably seated inside and opted for the banquet menu and was not disappointed. A great selection of authentic Lebanese food followed leaving us all full and barely able to fit in the desert and coffee. Service was excellent and the quality and quantity of the foods superb. Highly recommended.

As visitors to Melbourne, this was a standout for its relaxed, shared dining experience. Manager Adam and his team made us so welcome we felt part of the family. Servings were generous, food delicious and the beverage list ensured everyone's tastes were looked after. Be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out.

The restaurant is beautiful but the service is a bit poor, I loved the Libanese Barramundi, the waiter that served our table put us in hurry for the order and was trying to tell us what to eat. We stayed a bit longer because we were talking and we weren't approached for almost an hour when the restaurant was closing... More

We were the guests of Lebanese friends and it was the best Lebanese food that I have ever eaten. My guess is that our hosts had 'inside knowledge' but what a meal! Among other things, we had: - Fattoush which was my favourite - Halloumi Salad - dips and breads - Rekkat - Sambusek - Kebbi Nayeh (I couldn't bring... More

Went with a party of 10 for business and was blown away with the food quality. Service was attentive and food was authentic and very flavoursome. The restaurant had a great atmosphere, a little on the noisy side, so don't go if you are looking for a quiet night out.
