Great Service! & Friendly Environment

Had coffee and Sheesha here during a rainstorm - we were all seated inside. I must say the service was top notch! We were always being cared for constant being tended to. The indoor view of the Rock was as great as the cafe has window searing right on the edge of the cliff. Didn't eat there is... read more

I had my family coming over to visit me, and while checking out the rocks at Raouche, we decided to try out Bay Rock due to their fantastic view and nice prices. Unfortunately, as we would find out, the service does not do the location justice. First, we wanted to sit at a vacant table by the window, with good... More

A goto, must stop cafe, resto for anyone visiting Beirut. Highly recommended. The seating is a bit basic and the did overpriced for what it is but the overall ambiance and availability of wifi makes it worthwhile.

Well I must say that the waiters are selective with the people for seating arrangement...They leave the tables that have a good view for the big families' and often say they're reserved-when they are not reserved at all...The water / drinks glasses are hardly washed-they smell dirty. The waiters try to push clients to making orders on a big ticket... More

What makes this restaurant / café special is its close proximity to the Mediterranean and Pigeon Rocks of Raouche. Otherwise the food served including salads, starters, and grills, are the same as elsewhere in Lebanon. It was delicious food. At this time of the year, the weather was hot and humid. Fair service, although you may need to ask for... More

You can only dream of views like this. Perched over the Mediterranean with the Raouche rocks standing in front of you, you feel it is unreal. Just has drinks and nuts and looked at nature in amazement. At sunset, you would not want to be anywhere else in the world.
