Interesting and attractive view

Excellent choice of fish and well cooked. The usual mezze. A nice place to eat lunch and good views of sea, city and mountains.

A hidden gem, in the middle of that extra reclaimed square km in the sea. Right over the Mediterranean. Grand service. A huge variety of quality mezzes and deliciously prepared fresh fish you pick yourself. But the killer are the very original complimentary mini assortments of sweets, which are a delight to the palate. Be ready to spend a lot... More

This place has a marvelous view if you get to sit outside. The lights are dim which gives you a great view of the bay and Beirut. The presentation is good. However, the taste of the food could be improved. We only had mezze and drinks but enjoyed it very much. The deserts were good. Last but not least, it... More

The Mandaloun sur Mer is a good place that serves seafood. It has a great view of the waters, tasty food, and good service, You get to see and pick the raw fish/shrimps etc before it is cooked, as it is the norm of many other sea food restaurants.

The food was excellent, the service very good, the terrace a most pleasant place to have a long dinner enjoying the view. I will recommend it, particularly for business meals --unobstrusive yet diligent service-- or large groups.

The place is right on the seashore of new Beirut. Its terrace is pleasant in moderate weather, but in hot weather one have to eat inside where the hall is air conditioned. The interior is nice and they got valet parking, like most restaurants in Lebanon. The food is delicious, the fish is fresh, but the presentation can be made... More

I used to visit this place in its good days, everything was up to what you expect from food and service vis a vis the price. This time it was very different. I wasn't impressed about any of their starters, usually Lebanese seafood starters come in rich and tasty flavor. The main seafood dishes were sultan brahim and a grilled... More
