Very nice restaurant with great location in downtown. Food is good but does not come with any twist. The service is very good and friendly. Only negative: they play elevator music!

The restaurant is well situated in downtown Beirut with easy access for city duellers. I love the open huge hall that can fit easily over 200 guests. The service is excellent as well as the food. Their set menu formula is reasonable considering that it includes a variety of interesting fish appetizers like fish kibbeh, fish makanek and fish ras... More

I went to this restaurant with some colleagues on November 1 for dinner. We went to the downtown branch. The ambience is very nice. While the food was good and the fish fresh, I think it is far too expensive and the portions very small. Rockfish and Seabass were 90$ a kilo ( that is some 170$ per pound!!). We... More

Nice variety of mezze.Genereous dishes. They offer you at the end a rich table of fruits and oriental sweets on the house. Average... More

From the moment you enter, you feel welcomed and taken care of. Although the space is huge, it does not feel like that. The wait staff is experienced and make sure to give you advice about what fish to order and how much food. The fish is fresh and you pick your own. We were a group of 7 and... More

We visited the restaurant as we were invited to a wedding reception. The seating area is very large and accommodating. The table chairs are big and very comfortable with plenty of space between them. The high ceiling and the glass windows give the place a really grandiose feel. Comes the food: everything was perfect. There is a variety of fish... More

A very beautiful location, we chose to sit on the terrace, not a spectacular view but the whole design of the new outlet is really impressive. We had a lightish dinner and were treated with very attentive servers and the usual Lebanese generosity. We tried: Homos downtown: creamy with chunky pieces o chickpeas and a spicy sauce sprinkled with pine... More
