El Mina, Byblos, Jbeil, Lebanon


The fence of the historic city of Byblos forms the main wall of the 1188 Restaurant; it's about a several centuries-old stone house turned into a restaurant, where distinguished French cuisine is served in a serene setting.

“1188” is one of the symbols of the seven millenniums of the City of Jbeil age.

Good ambiance. Cosy. Good and friendly staff. Food is below average. The sauce of the blanc de poulet platter smells and tastes very bad. Even the steamed potato is bad! Overpriced comparing to food quality.

Average-. Food is oki. But the bechamel sauce is like creamy water. Service slow. They are working like zombie. Ambiance is cheesy especially on friday night. No. I did not like it.

Had dinner on the rooftop. Really nice place but music had no identity, no style, it was too loud although we kept asking them to lower the vol. food was very delicious.

Nice place and nice atmosphere, but we got a SPIDER in one of the platters we ordered. And yes, a real spider around 7x7 cm in dimensions cooked with the meat. The managers tried to justify and apologize, but we will never go again!
