Mediterranean & Lebanese Cuisine by Byblos Cafe & Lounge @ The Hive TREC KL

Byblos Cafe & Lounge @ TREC KL

A contemporary cafe & lounge named Byblos is located at TREC, The Hive, which is the same location as Zouk KL as well as the new Le Noir KL. The interior of this Mediterranean & Lebanese Cafe & Lounge is really nice and chilling.


The staffs are very light-hearted and warming and they always take care of customers’ satisfaction.


Byblos is a new Mediterranean/Lebanese concept in Kuala Lumpur that aims to put a new spin on Lebanese cuisine.

Byblos is the name of the most ancient in city in Lebanon, and by all possibilities, the world. It is a city steeped in history, and its origins can be traced as far back as 7000 to 8000 BCE.


The outdoor seating is next to a garden and it’s very relaxing at night where you can have Shisha/Hookah and chit chat with your friends.


By looking at the environment you might think that it’s a very expensive restaurant, but looking at the menu, the foods and drinks are nicely priced at an affordable standard.

There are several food menus from Cold Appetizers to Hot Appetizers, Mixed Grill to Raw Meat, all sort of Mediterranean and Lebanese foods you can find it here.

The menu contains traditional favorites such as Hummus, Moutabal, and Tabbouleh, honed and perfected from over two decades of cooking and made all the more distinctive through the use of the freshest organic ingredients.


Other items on the menu include Shawarma, Falafel, oriental lamb hot breads and desserts, all of which are homemade and prepared fresh daily.

The drinks menu include soft drinks, juices and coffee.


Not to forget, they also serves alcohol beverages for weekend party goers or a night meeting with friends and colleagues!
