Byblos is a true microcosm of the civilizations that have populated Lebanon over the centuries.

'''Byblos Fishing Club'''. This restaurant is located on the Mediterranean Sea. It's the perfect place to have a great lunch or romantic dinner. Decorating the walls are pictures of many international personalities that have visited the restaurant, including Brigitte Bardot, Jaques Chirac, Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra and Fraga Iribarne.
While this restaurant is written up in many travel guides, it is long past its prime. Be warned that the food is only average, and very, very expensive. If ordering the fresh fish, make sure you ask how much is in advance.
