My wife and I had a great lunch at this great place. The location is gorgeous. The service was very good and the food was delicious. A bit pricy but I would certainly eat there again.

This place has one of the best views in Lebanon as it overlook the bay of Byblos. The food is nice but expensive though... Drinks are available. The service is average. The interior walls are filled with photos of the owner of the restaurant with world recognized celebrities. Overall you feel a nostalgic charm to this place that you won't... More

Very nice view, people are very welcoming. We had drinks ar the underground bar, where we could put our own music, and then slept at Pepe's fishing house as well. The view is really amazing. I would recommend for anyone coming to byblos, this is a must-see

Pepe's has been around for a long time and is famous in Lebanon. The view of Byblos harbour is beautiful and the decor of the restaurant is very interesting. I would say the food is good but the spoiler is the prices. Very expensive.

The patio is situated right over the old harbor for amazing views. The food was excellent and the service friendly and attentive without hovering. They have a boat as a full bar inside. A little pricey, but generally worth it.

I had lunch here twice during my visit to Lebanon. The food is delicious and fresh. The staff are friendly and helpful. The view and location is just amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant. A window seat overlooking the sea is just the best!

You can't ever beat this's location in Jbeil (Byblos). Overlooking the harbour and the beautiful fishing boats, Pepe Abed offers excellent and fresh seafood cooked to your liking. Their menu offers ofcourse the classical Lebanese Mezza. I found some items on the mezza section to be a bit overpriced compared to the portions.

Thank Jadzo
