Very nice Sunday outing

At Arnaoon you can enjoy a whole day with your family/friends in a. Nice setup. You start with a breakfast and some activities, enjoy a generous buffet at lunch and plenty of activities for the whole family thereafter. Really nice place to enjoy a Sunday

The food is really bad. There is too much noise. Kids are happy there. Can go elswhere eat good with a place for kids for the same price or less.

Its a very nice place with a very good buffet with wide variety of dishes but the concept fits well if you have kids.outherwise its not a perfect place for friends gathering !! The kids animation is held more then 60% of the time ...on the mic...so not enough music to enjoy....and relax but overall its a nice clean place

The drive to the place is beautiful. The people are super friendly and helpful. The food is excellent in taste and variety. The place gets a bit noisy because of kids running around and shouting.

Great landscaping, yummy buffet and prime location. Arnaoon village is a fantastic place where you can leave your kids to safely play while you enjoy authentic lebanese food. Reservation is a must, as it gets really crowded especially on weekends. But the buffet is well supervised so you won't feel it's crowded or short of food. There is a small... More

Very nice nature, and the natural decoration fit in with its environment. We were in a group of married couples. But, if you are looking for a quiet environment within nature, don't try this place. Not recommended on Sundays, Very crowded, and like a kinder-garden; the result, waiters are very busy, and after many reminders, they make you wait very... More

It is a great place to spend full day with your kids. Make sure to arrive early enough (12: 30 pm) in order to have some drinks before lunch. ( on a summer Sunday, it may take 1:30 mins from Beirut). Lebanese food buffet is excellent quality, with some international food as well. ( open regular bar ). They keep... More
