Byblos Café Review

Good grub, a friendly crowd, and belly dancers on weekend evenings make Byblos—named for an ancient city in Phoenicia—a fun addition to almost any itinerary. One of the most ordered items on the menu is the Byblos Mezah (for two), which includes hummus, baba ghanoush, falafel, grape leaves, and tabbouleh. The mainstream menu is dotted with lamb chops, curried beef, gyros, and other treats. By the way, you can join the dancers—if you have the bravado. If you have a moment, check out the market toward the back of the restaurant—there are loads of international foods and beverages you can take with you.

    A great experience, with great food.

    I've eaten at Byblos many times for lunch, and it is really a great place. The wait staff is always good, the food is consistently excellent, and the whole experience is exactly right: A Mediterranean/middle east feeling you can enjoy. This restaurant has great gyros, kabobs, etc, but is also very suitable for vegetarians...so a mixed group can do well.
