Description: Sydney's, located in the majestic Le Vendome Hotel Beirut is, once again, a gathering point for both the young and old generation. Because of the talent of the famous architect and designer French interior of Pierre-Yves Rochon, the restaurant's interior received a cosmetic facelift, adding more modern design touches and lighter colors choosing a very British setting, the latter are infused with modern and trendy breath. Tables Mixed Media Digital Art done by the young Lebanese artist Selim Attieh adorns the walls. The breathtaking view of the Sea continues to add a magic moment, whatever the time and season. Not to forget the undeniable flawless service and impeccable food with the signature dishes of Sydney's and additional mouthwatering plates for you to discover. The place is busy and ready to welcome guests starting 6am with a unique continental breakfast, followed with lunch, afternoon coffee and tea, then of course comes a romantic or business dinner, depending on your mood. Any minute in between, you're welcome to come in and enjoy the whole new set up... Named as a tribute to its first manager John Sydney, Sydney's has remained one of the most fashionable entertaining destinations since it opened in 1996. Celebrated for great food, drinks and wonderful cocktails, Sydney's is without a doubt the true culinary experience of Beirut all of which can be enjoyed 24h with a spectacular view over the Mediterranean Sea.

I stayed in Le Vendome InterContinental and one of the main highlights of my stay is simply Sydney's. The place is classically decorated and offers a superb view of the Mediterranean Sea.

I had the pleasure of having breakfast over there and a few drinks in the night and the place becomes completely different according to which part of the day you visit it.

I will make sure I come back to this lovely view and place.

First and foremost, the view from Sydney’s is breathtaking (For sea-lovers that is). Nestled on the last floor of le vendôme hotel, this place serves as a great location for conducting meetings, grabbing a cup of coffee, or having a nice lunch or dinner in a cozy atmosphere.

Further details:

Presentation/Décor: A simple and elegant outlet with nicely partitioned tables. The color scheme of the place is very uplifting, and I can’t stress enough how wonderful the view from the place is. The place features comfortable chairs and nice table-height. The espresso shot was served in a ceramic white cup which was perfectly clean without any signs of drip-marks. The coffee itself acquired a nice aroma. Score: 4.5/5

Taste: I have only had an espresso shot at the place during a business meeting. The coffee featured a good taste and was served at its ideal temperature. Score: 4/5

Service: Our waiter “Roni” (if my memory doesn’t fail me) was super friendly and helpful, he has also offered us some candy on our way out. Quick service as well. Score: 4.5/5

Overall Sore: 4.33/5
