Genuine mexican cuisine! Cozy place...good food and reliable service! The only negative thing is that the meal portions are small comparing to the prices! But still worth a visit for Mexican food lovers specially with the lack of competition around!!

Very nice location, few minutes walk from Byblos port. Better to visit evening time. Food is just ok and quite pricey.

Byblos is my lovely place and now it comes much nicer since El Molino Mexican Restaurant is located there, near the port and the sea. Very cozy, worm and very welcoming. Staff very helpful and will provide you advice about the available menu. Thanks Charbel.

My brother in law suggested we have lunch here and about was. El Molino was totally empty at the time of our visit. The beer we ordered were regular local almaza's but what got our attention was the ice frost that encapsulated the top of the bottles...Never seen that done before. The lunch was a mix of faghitas and tacos.... More
