Nothing to enjoy starting with taste, extremely bad service and cleanness. the food has no meaning or identity, the waiters are making you a favour to serv you and above all extremly expensive for such quality. If you enjoy good dinning do not go there.

Consider yourself deprived of a unique experience if you don't get to enjoy a fresh fish (you pick) that then's grilled while you wait; several restaurants do that and the result is heavenly!

I went there last Friday to have lunch in it, and discovered that it has been removed and doing some constructions there. I don't know what happened and if they have moved it to another area!

I live not far from the place, it's amazing, delicious food. The avrage price is less than that, much les than that. I think it'd go for up to $50 pp. Depends on type of fish ordered. Best resturant is Al-shatt resturant I'd give it the star amongest all the resturants

This was my favorite place on a friday in Tripoli - choose your fish then have it cooked will be bought to your table with bread and salads if you choose. Some of the salads are a risk though!. We ate here many times- it's quite rustic and not very atmospheric during the day- looks better in the evening -... More

I went there with a Spanish man. I was very happy to hear that he was enjoying the meal very much as well as I. However, I believe the service there are nice, but no very much compared with other modern countries, but I am sure you will be happy to choose fish that you would like. I will go... More
