Feniqia: a restaurant you have to visit in Byblos Jbeil.
Byblos is the most beloved city to the Lebanese people and a touristic hub for the Arab countries.You can't say you visited Byblos without having lunch or dinner in it's iconic restaurant Feniqia in the old souks facing the castle.
Feniqia is one of the best restaurants in town and it serves delicious Lebanese food with a remarkable medieval presentation.The restaurant is always full so expect to wait around 30 minutes since it is a first come first served concept (we love this concept). But no worries as you can roam around and enjoy the old souk.
• First they welcome you with an extraordinary tabboune that is on the house and that includes labneh, zaatar, olives, saj bread and a small grill to heat the bread. The concept is amazing and you will be able to heat the bread during all the food experience so you will surely enjoy the hommos.
In case you are on a diet, we advise you to have their grilled halloumi platter with vegetables as it was very generous, delicious and light on the stomach.
• Now for the main platters we had a taouk sandwich and meat shawrma. They were both packed with fries, and salad. Not only the portion was plentiful but they were both excellent and for 9$.
We will definitely come again very soon.
Average price: 15$ per person.
Location:Jbeil,Old Souk, Facing Castle.
