It's ok, but I couldn't see what the fuss was all about. Lots of students walking around (the American University is here) getting food from chain outlets - a lot of them global brands. Am sure it was all lovely, but not the authentic experience...More

This street is full of standard chain restaurants, just serving AUB students. I found it hard to go wrong, but hard to be dazzled.

Struggling to maintain its traditional ambiance amidst highrise upmarket apartment blocks. The cheaper restaurants and stores are in pré-war buildings of which there are not many left, but enough to ensure some sense authenticity.

I don't know why Bliss Street would be an attraction which is why it only gets 3 stars. But I went to AUB which is on that street and I loved it. It had lots of small restaurants and shops. The vibe is authentic.
