The award-winning Byblos Sur Mer is one of Abu Dhabi’s most celebrated Lebanese restaurants. Enjoy authentic grilled meats and mezze platters in a contemporary, two-level dining room. Guests rave about the Byblos Sur Mer, from the stylish décor to the live entertainment. From the terrace, views of the sparkling marina are best enjoyed with a chilled glass of arak in hand and the chalky smoke of a shisha wafting through the air.

    Went to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It was very quiet restaurant but the ambience was good. The food was okayish, ordered soup, mix platter, sujok and hummus and pomegranate juice. Although the menu said mocktails they didn’t have it and said they only had 2 juices. They did not share the drinks menu which we got to know only later when we saw other table ordering wine etc. Would have been good if they told us earlier. The good thing was they had arranged for a small cake at the last and the cake was very tasty. Hope the service to be better.

    The service and ambiance was perfect, the food was very good except the desserts. Much too much and in a way that it was not at all tasty for Europeans. Especially the pistachio-Cream-dessert was awful.

    Nice location by the sea but the atmosphere and decoration of the restaurant were very poor. Nice food. Service was slow with no experience. Starters and main courses, all came together. Almost all wines from the wine list were missing.

    Lovely location, food was good, terrible service. Booked table 7 weeks in advance for a small family reunion asking for nice outdoor seating. Restaurant was full of business dinners, no nice table for us. Manager proposed to sit us alone on the upper terrace that was not even prepared for guests. They they gave us a table Literally at the entrance to the sisha preparation, which was back side and everyone was just running past. Food was good, though Beirut sur mer was better. We asked for salads to be served with the grill, they arrived even before the starters. We asked for drinks they had as cocktails on their menu, after three different attempts the right ones arrived. All in all would not return. For classic Lebanese dinner there are many options around Abu Dhabi - so one is not dependent on this location. View normally is lovely, and the reason I had booked it, as during previous visits it was nice. Never again!!

    I do not recommend this restaurant. The food is nothing exceptional, the music was too loud where you could not talk. I chose this restaurant because of the good reviews to celebrate my 2 year wedding anniversary and I regretted it.
