Ranked #15 of 462 Restaurants in Beirut
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Lebanese
Dining options: Late Night
Description: A wonderful Lebanese restaurant in downtown Beirut. The food was wonderful, our favourites were the grilled halloumi cheese, cheese rolls, fatoush salad and moutabel (as well as dessert with white coffee - hot rose water). The wine was also good. The decor is quite simple and modern, not a great amount of atmosphere but it was all made up by the delicious food and wonderful service which constantly looked after us. You can also smoke shisa if you wish to. Greatly located in downtown Beirut, near the central mosque. Prices are about average for a restaurant dinner in the centre of town. It was recommended to us by Hotel Albergo, and I was very much satisfied with my evening and will definitely go back.

If anyone would ask me where did I have my best meal in beirut, I'll directly reply: at Karam. I enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the service. It is worthy every penny spent in there. All my friend who went there as per my recommendation have spent great times. I am looking forward t being there again. Hopefully soon.

Went there yesterday for family lunch and we enjoyed it a lot. Perfect set up for families gathering. Nice decor. Mouthwatering LEBANESE food (meza and barbecue) every dish was tasty. The service was efficient and quick. Polite and skillful waiters. Dishes portions were fair. Good value for money Not overpriced at all. Even though the place is not that big... More

I love Lebanese food and I don't mean the fare served at Beirut's international hotels. Karam is an interesting 15-minute walk from the Phoenicia and St. George's, and the food is delicious, authentic and plentiful. I had a table outside for dinner in October and although the place is upscale, it is not a pretentious, plastic, pseudo French meat market... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night upon our visit to Beirut in June. The location is quite good, down town, at the end of a quiet pedestrian street. The food was delicious, traditional lebanese. The atmosphere on the outside area of the resaturant was beautiful & very romantic. If the weather allows I strongly recommend the outside area... More
