“Wonderful Escape From AI Resort Meals!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

My wife and I have been staying at a nearby resort and eating "gourmet" meals from an all-inclusive package. The meals have not been gourmet and we needed to have a great meal. We first went to Oh Lala but they had no reservations available. The kind man at the restaurant recommended Byblos and it was excellent. Sylvie and her husband are great hosts and we could tell they know quality ingredients and how to use them. We highly encourage people who are looking for good food in a romantic setting with thoughtful and caring owners to try Byblos.

“Classic French cuisine returns”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The best French restaurant here; pates, foie gras, kidney, lamb, rabbit, seafood, and much more. Excellent wines, cooled if desired and then decanted. The service was perfect. Not every time has been perfect; but, I have seldom had a better meal in Playa. They have a low priced menu from 3:00 to 7:30.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Amazing! Great service. Great food. Ceviche was the best I have had. Limited number of tables. Was recommended to us when we couldn't get into oh lala. We were not disappointed.
