A nice change of food. But really there wasn't much flavor to the dishes. Salsa was fine. All the food was fine, not bad, but not "wow, that is excellent". Window sears have good views. Margarida was quite good and strong.More

Attentive service in a family atmosphere, but pretty average, overpriced Mexican fare. That said, I would definitely go back for a pitcher of margaritas and endless chips and salsa. That in and of itself is a treasure to find for Mexican-food lovers living overseas.

If you are in Jbeil and crave some mexican food, then head to El Molino and enjoy the real mexican taste! Don't miss their margaritas too!

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.

Nice Quality Mexican food, the mixed fajitas were great along with Tacos. We had chicken quesadillas it needed some sort of dressing or salsa was a bit plain. Service & overall atmosphere was great. Thank you
