Luscious Lebanese

Beirut is fabulous. Great food, friendly staff. Order the "mesas menu" just don't think it's over When the mesas are gone. The entree is still to come and its great! Don't miss it if you're in Cologne.

Great price, great waiter, great food. We couldn't finish it all so we asked him to give us the rest to go. The food was amazing, really. Will definitely come here again!

Good food, nice experience to eat libanese food. ..a bit overcrowded, but ok. We choose the masa menu - many different plates allow to taste many things...

We stopped here for lunch. The restaurant looks a little tired but the food was excellent. There was a wide range of dishes. All very reasonably priced. We tried a few of the mezes and had some of the mains from the grill. Everything was lovely, authentic, fresh and tasty, the portions were generous and the service was good, welcoming... More

This place is fast and furious. Food arrives faster than your Ferrari will be got stolen. :) Stuff is professional, I got waiter who was very polite and even got good suggestions about food. Also as it was my fist Lebanese food, he did not make a number of that when I asked him to explain how to eat all... More

It was worth the 45 minutes wait for food .. we really enjoyed all the dishes they served (I recommend doing an Al a Carte instead of their set menu which is expensive @ 32 Euros/person and one doesn't enjoy so many different dishes). The food is real authentic Lebanese and the staff is extremely friendly providing great service! A... More

A man stood in the middle of the restaurant the whole time barking out orders to the servers, and it made us feel uncomfortable. He would ask us if we wanted anything and then tell someone else to get it. When we asked to pay, a man brought us tea that we didn't order. We thought it came with the... More

There is no doubt that the food at Beirut is good but overall we were left more than disappointed with our dining experience. We didn't expect a cozy romantic place, we had read other reviews so we're prepared for a busy cafe type of meal. However there were a number of things that were done very badly. First the cheapest... More

The place was a little hard to find, but the food was really good. I think we enjoyed most the pastries filled with meat. The falafel was a little overdone...too crunchy, but everything was overall yummy and the portions were big. Good value and service. I would recommend and come back again!

We booked a table in advance but when we came, we were offered a table next to the toilet, in some type of corridor. Not the best place to enjoy meal. We didn't agree to sit there and asked if we could sit somewhere else. So we were given another table at a condition that we had to leave it... More
