The wine list is great although the first 2 bottles we chose were out of stock. but dont let that put you off because the experience all in all is fine. beautiful interior and located in... More

If wine is your thing, very few places in Lebanon can offer the wide variety of Lebanese wines Cru offers. The food quality is consistently decent (though some find the food menu to be of little variety. Highly recommended.

This is one of those Beirut places where you can go to see and be seen. The crowd is young professional, people in their late 20´s early 30´s or so. They offer great drinks, excellent music and food. I have been here with good friends and I have visited more than once.

What I loved about Cru is how warm and friendly the owners are! The food is also great, the grilled calamari is the best I have tasted in Lebanon. There is a wide variety of Lebanese wine available which is another great plus point as you get to discover new and really good wine in Lebanon.
