A huge progress in service and food

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.

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.

One of the best view, anything else is to be reviewd. Sitting areas, tables and chairs are old and un easy. Food is average and less service is fine. Price is high for the quality of place and food. Just think before going.

All their tables overlook the famous Raouche and the view is amazing, especially during nice weather. The food is excellent, always, my only problem is with the number of shisha smokers, though having been one myself until recently, I cant complain! The service is excellent too.

Quite a large restaurant located in one of the fancier neighborhoods of Beirut, but the restaurant itself is not too much fancy and more relaxed. Football showing on television, shisha smoked on the terrace, and nice Lebanese food served. The view however, is the most important reason to come here. Stunning.

The best thing about this restaurants is the great view overlooking the rock. The place is good in terms of atmosphere and we had some juices which were all average. Service was not exceptionally good but I would definitely recommend this place if you wish to enjoy the view of the rock with an affordable price.
