I have been here at least once every time I have been in Beirut, this visit I was there twice. Great Lebanese cuisine, great atmosphere right on the seafront and the famous, much photographed rocks. A great place when in a large group given the variety of starters that arrive and good main courses. great for both meat and fish.

This was my second visit to Bay Rock, and I may say it was a risk that I was ready to take. Actually my first experience in this restaurant seven years ago was so ugly, but according to a friend's recommendation last month, I decided to go again and check myself. Indeed, there is a great qualitative leap in service... More

Definitely it has the best view of the sea. The rest you can argue about. Tables and chairs are not the best, but the food (fish) and all types of Lebanese salads were very good.

I had some of the nicest freshly squeezed and prepared juices I have had anywhere. It is directly above the famous rock island in the bay below with great views of the ocean.
