You won’t stay hungry at جبيل, Lebanon – there are a lot of good restaurants located around the old harbour and in the old souk area. If you prefer a more quiet option than the Malena might be the right choice for you. It is a hidden gem located close to the harbour of Byblos (Jbeil) and you need to know where to find it. The restaurant has a roofed terrace with amazing views on the harbour and the sea, and it is placed within a nice garden with fruits growing around the restaurant.
At the Malena, they serve Lebanese and Mediterranean food starting with great mezze and nice grilled food. The staff is great and has a special sense of humour. 😉 As a surplus, it is a very short walking distance from the restaurant to the souk, the crusader castle and of course to the harbour – it is a good starting point to discover Byblos.
