Full of smoke, not suitable for families with children.

Very crowded, expensive and average food. Location is the only advantage of this place. Nice view if you get 1st row table.

The beautiful view and a great change for a good picture of the bay rock at Rawsheh in Beirut is probably the main attraction of this place. The food is average and the prices are probably high for the view and surely not for the quality of the food. They must do something about air conditioning in such a big... More

I am disgusted with this place. If you are not a local, do not go to Bay Rock Café because they will charge you more than 150 euros for a sea bass that feeds three people and the price of your bottle of Ksara blanc de blancs will be practically double the price stated in the menu. Even if the... More

Good Typical restaurant with an excellent view on Pigeons' Rock and Mediterranean Sea. My suggestion is to have lunch or dinner outside just in front of the Rock of Raouché.

The view is amazing mainly at sunset if you are the romantic type. The food is not good and the price is not average. Service can be much better.

This was one of my favourite spots to visit in Beirut. The first time we went just for Sheisha and tea, the next day we went for a late lunch. The food was fantastic - we ordered the Fresh sardines - 16500.0 LBP and Hindbe (Dandelion) - 7500.0 LBP for starters, Chicken escalope “Viennoise” - 19500.0 LBP with french fries... More

Took a group of 8 for dinner. The food is very good with your traditional Lebanese fare but the restaurant does also serve a mix of international foods. The service is ok, a little reserved though. It is pricier than usual Lebanese restaurants but you are paying for the location which is exceptional with views of the Pigeon Rocks.
