am the kind who might go again to a place just because of the staff there , this place is a good option for wine lovers , the owners are so welcoming , the food is well served and delicious , it’s a place that you can visit anytime either for a drink or for dinner.

Intriguing wines. Some excellent, some extraordinary. And that's just the wines. The food, reasonably priced for its amazing quality, is always a treat. To top all that is the friendly service I receive at Cru. I have been to many restaurants and wine bars, and Cru is by far my favorite. They make you feel like part of their family.... More

It's gives the impression to be a cool place or as they want it to be a wine bar. Good collection of Lebanese, rarely equalled, however, rarely well presented and too expensive for a serious wine bar.

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.
