I can still remember going to Mounir for the first time around 20 years ago; at that point, I had tried enough Lebanese restaurants to know the difference between real home cooked Lebanese cuisine..and the franchised touristic version.... Mounir provides the closest to traditional Lebanese cuisine, in the strikingly beautiful setting of the mountains of Broumana (at some tables, you... More

Even that the food was good, the service was clean, but you feel that you are just no one or else, you do not feel the personal touch, too much noise, it is not restaurant it is Factory

The mezze is great! especially their Fattoosh salad, I usually hate to eat it out cz it's so much better at home, except for this place. I love their shanklish too, and their hummos is one of the best. Really great food whatever you order, you can't go wrong. Their grill is perfect. Always juicy, especially the shish taouk (chicken...

This restaurant felt way too big for my liking and therefore it really did not have any atmosphere. The service was average - although we were a very large group of 40 people. The food again was average, we had a full Lebanese style meal, but the amount of food was way too much to the point it was a... More

Set amidst a garden with a gorgeous view, Mounir serves fresh ingredients with a wide variety of mezze. The restaurant is very suitable for large groups & special events

So, I go solo and say I want to spend a couple of hours and ask if they can change later the table to a scenic view. And with a smile, I get a NO which I can't really understand. Food was average; had better quality in other places. Seats aren't comfortable. Service was slightly below average. You could sense... More

Delicious Food with amazing view. A bit colder as it is 750m above sea level. Went at sun set and the view was amazing.

This restaurant offers great Lebanese foods. Food ingredients are always fresh. If you want to judge a Lebanese restaurant, try its main course grilled meets ( Kafta, lamb chops,& chicken skewers ).Usually you rarely find a restaurant that offers main dishes of refined quality. This restaurant is one of the rare restaurants that offers high quality main course dishes. For... More

Very nice place to taste traditional Lebanese Mezze. The location is superb. Its located high on the mountain, and the outside area features a beautiful balcony over the steep mountains. The flowery decoration and the water- fall make this place very special. However, I found prices in Mounir to be higher than many other similar cuisine. Worth trying...
