Upon visiting Edinburgh on our holiday, my husband and I were trawling the internet for restaurants and stumbled upon this restaurant that was not part of a chain. We generally love Lebanese food and we were not disappointed at Beirut. The service was impeccable and friendly and the food was brilliant value for money and very tasty. We really enjoyed... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal with friends. Food was delicious and the staff great. My chicken dish, which could have been dry, was juicy and fresh. However the decor is tired and worn and definitely lacked atmosphere. I have to say the entrance to the dining area to the toilets could have been cleaner. Come on Beirut, don't rest on your... More

The food we had was nice and the prices were reasonable. It was BYOB and having never been to one like that we didn't quite know the etiquette. But they were done with that and either changed no corkage or £3 can't quite remember but either way no a lot. The major down side was the table layout. It felt... More

I visited the restaurant on a Sunday evening and it was very quiet. I hadn't realised it was BOYOB so good to know before you go. I wasn't sure what to expect but the setting was very relaxed. The staff were very efficient and the food was served in a good time. The menu had a lot of choice including... More

Good selection of middle eastern food, all the favourites plus a few specialities of the house. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and the service was great. This was our second visit this year and it was a real pleasure to eat here again. It is a byo place and they charge £3 per bottle corkage.

As the title says, don't expect impeccably dressed waiters and in fact service can be a little slow at times. Having said this, the food is well cooked, great tasting, good looking and reasonably priced. Especially good value is the set menu we tried which will defeat all but the hungriest of diners. Our selection of starters was interesting and... More

We absolutely loved our meal here last night! There was 7 of us and we ate just About everything on the menu and it was all delicious. The service is good and they brought us whatever we asked for. My only very slight qualm was that when we booked they said to bring bring our own booze but didn't advise... More

Well we were lucky enough to walk in and get a table on a Friday night but it soon filled up after us. The service was prompt and polite and the food was just amazing. I ordered lamb chops and they were cooked to perfection and as tender as I've ever had. I was pleasantly surprised with the price as... More

We ordered our takeaway online for a fixed time. When we arrived at the restaurant to pick it up we had to wait about ten minutes. But the ambience of the restaurant was lovely and we liked the decor. Staff were friendly. But the most important thing was the food was delicious - a myriad of flavours and very tasty... More

The food is amazing, delicious hummus, falafel, tabbouleh.. And they have every Middle Eastern dish you could ever want! The location is great, and it's tastefully decorated although on this occasion the service was very slow. It was a busy evening so I understand, but there was a massive wait between food and the bill, which was annoying. On the... More
