Lovely architecture, great lebanese food, and the beautiful view of Saida castle. Highly recommended. Also this place serves alcohol, the Arak baladi is very smooth. Good service too.

Very well situated with nice scenery and excellent food. The service is fine, and the old castle adds to the nice ambiance.

Great spot for some modern Lebanese food. Beautiful setting both indoors and al fresco on the waterfront. Excellent view of the chateau de la mer. Recommended- freekeh salad, mouhamara, and all the mezze.

What a beautiful view with super yummy food. The BBQ fish is delicious. Appetizers were very tasty. The view on the beach was extra ordinary. We all were taken by the gorgeous setting and great food and service

The restaurant is located overlooking the sea with amazing view, the terrace is very beautiful to be when the weather allows. The food is more than delicious, large variety of fish. You choose from fish on display and choose how to have it cooked.

The quality of food is good and the service is very efficient. If weather is good you can seat outside and enjoy the view over the citadel.

Saida Rest House has a very nice location by the seaside and with a view on the fortress. The architecture is very unique, the dishes are delicious, the portions are small and the prices are high. Staff are friendly and welcoming.

Restaurant located right by the sea which gives him an enormous advantage over its rivals in the area. Food if gd quality, service is up to the expectations. However, restaurant needs major uplift especially the bathrooms which are overused. Overall, enjoyable moments
