Description: An escape from the dreary restaurant grind, St. Elmo's serves elevated pub grub in a retro-urban seaside setting. Packed with 'crowd pleasing fare', the look is simultaneously rough and quaint, in a struggling-artist sort of way. The restaurant owes it's name to St. Erasmus of Formiae, the patron saint of sailors who is affectionately known as St. Elmo's. Attempts at culinary categorization are futile since St. Elmo's is more seasonal and inventive than Beirut's best brasseries but cheaper and more accessible than what you find at the great bastions of haute cuisine. Specializing in down-home dishes like rich and gooey 'Mac & Cheese', the 'Classic Fish & Chips' and a plethora of other sudo-traditional foodstuffs, St. Elmo's has managed to capture the elusive mix of style and spirit of 'the perfect day at the beach'.

When the weather is nice it is always good to have a drink at St Elmos, especially the shangrila. However food wise, it is really average and has got nothing special to it. It is also overrated. gave it 4 stars due to its nice location, friendly staff, and really good shangrila ;)

This is a place that you attend to for a drink and tasty sangria, the service is friendly and warm.the manager Ahmad attends to all details to make sure all restaurant attendees are fine. I remember that the grilled calamari was ok but small. Anyway, this is the place with a very nice setting facing the marina, with good margarita... More

Lovely location down in the new marina, great service from very friendly waiter. However it is let down by it's food, we had a Swiss cheese mushroom burger which was rather small though the flavour was fine, but it was served with the smallest portion of chips I have ever seen, we had to order a second portion. Why do... More

Located in the trendy and upbeat Zeytouna Bay, I walked down from my hotel and ventured onto the waterside terrace because the place looked unpretentious and had a mix of mellenials and baby boomers. Staff were very attentive and friendly, even gave me the choice to have a couch table instead of a smaller table, since I am dining on... More

St Elmos brasserie in Zaytouna bay in Beirut is not impressing. The service is very slow and i have to remind the waiters all the time of your order. The food is expensive and quality is average. Only the seating is good
