Lunch By The Mediterranean In Byblos

One of the best features of Lebanon is that it lays on the Mediterranean sea shore. The blue waters crashing on the rocks, make the most beautiful scenery for a picturesque lunch, or any activity really… It’s really a shame visiting Lebanon and not having a meal or two on the gorgeous Mediterranean shores.

Byblos is an ancient sea-side city, dating several thousand years BC. Its charm has stood the test of time, invasions, wars… etc. The ancient feeling and the fact that it’s located right on the Mediterranean makes it one of my favorite places to visit. Before we stopped for lunch in this beautiful city, we strolled the rocky pier, basking in the beautiful spring sun. As you walk along, you get a little mist of the waves crashing on the rocks, dying to come greet you. You can almost taste the saltiness in the air. Fisherman throwing their nets into the water, hoping for a good catch.

It doesn’t matter that you’ve been here many times before, each time you will be amazed by Byblos’s beauty.

Right on the pier, a few restaurants stand side by side, serving Lebanese mezze and freshly caught seafood. Although they’re all similar, Pepe Byblos Fishing Club stands a little differently. Opened in the 60’s, the world’s biggest cinema stars, intellectuals and even presidents have frequented it. Head over to the side wall, covered in framed pictures of the most famous people that have visited it throughout the years.

The maritime theme is dominant with the blue chairs and white tables. We picked a table right on the edge of the terrace, overlooking the pier and the ancient castle.

From octopus to shrimp to local fish, the meal was exquisite. 

We finished off with a bowl of pudding before saying goodbye to Byblos, promising one more visit before going back to San Francisco.

    I have a lot of friends and professors visited Lebanon and they said that it is one of the most beautiful places they have ever seen, so you are lucky that you were raised there.
    I missed you from Youtube this week, hope you make it on time the following week.
