It includes a glass of wine, appetizer, entree and small desert. For each course there are several choices. I had the pork dish which was... More

If you are in Playa Del Carmen Mexico and want a change from Mexican or Italian food try Byblos. Very inexpensive menu if you have dinner before 7, reservation is recommended. Food is excellent, many choices, our favorite was the osso buco and Beef bourguignon, our friends had other choices and were very pleased. If you don't mind eating before... More

Atmosphere is OK at best, VERY snobby and rude owners. I had to wait 15 minutes for a glass of wine, 3o for an appetizer and 1 hour for my meal. When I asked about the time it was taking, I was scolded by the female owner. It is only the husband and wife and 1 bartender who run the... More

You ate an appetizer and an entree and were out of the restaurant in 50 minutes. The people around you were very sorry for how YOU talked to me when I told you after you complained about the time, that the escargot needed 20 minutes to be ready. You got your wine served immediately. You asked to taste first the... More

A friend recommended for the special menu between 3-7:30. Glass of wine, appetizer, entree and dessert for only 250 pesos. Many things to choose from, I had fish, very good. We will return to try other selections. Eat inside with AC or outside.
