If you like Mexican food, this is the place to be. From the decor, the menu and the food display, you'll feel the pure Mexican mood. The food is great and delicious, the is amazing, the service is very quick and the staff are very friendly. Do not miss their margaritas...

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.

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

A really nice mexican restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. Nice view over the bay and the inside is well decorated typical mexican. Very welcoming staff and helpful. The food was amazing we had takitos,mixed fajitas,specialty salad, tequila shots and strawberry margaritas. The prices are really reasonable compared to the quality of food, a quality you will not find in most... More
