Today was the first time I go to Byblos and it was to have Iftar. To my surprise, we were seated upstairs at Bubbles who has the same owner as Byblos. The ambiance and decor is among the best in Jeddah. I’ve heard about Byblos that it is known to host business meeting or high end customers because of their relatively high prices. So I knew what to expect and came in with a full wallet!
At Iftar time, the table was already set with many different plates. There was dates of course, fatoush, soup, sambousik, vigne rolls, labneh, small saucissage, foul, hommos etc. For the main dish, we had the choice between grilled meats or mloukhia. And finally for desert, we had melons and an assorted plate of Arab sweets.
The food was great! Service was at it’s best. Shisha was excellent. Price was expensive (with drinks, coffee and shisha, 225 SR per person) but well worth it.
I strongly recommend Byblos at least once during your stay in Jeddah.
