This winery is worth the trip from Beirut. Well tended lawns, roses, and laurel trees make it an oasis in summer. Lebanese rent the premises to stage marriages and an occasional birthday party. Kefraya wine is a must to take back home.

Their buffet lunch is rich, delicious and versatile The open wine formula is sure to leave some memories The ambiance in winter is cozy and warm but go in the summer to fully appreciate the premises, especially if you have small children (summer kids' animation)

Garden is nice. The restaurant seems an autogrill (those we have on highways). Food less than average with redoundant names of the dishes (taboulette dans sa berceuse... for a spoonfoll of taboule served into a leaf of cabbage!). The rest... better to forget. Not worth at all the money you will pay!

We arrived just before 6pm on a weekday, so perhaps it was an odd time to visit/dine as there was no one else there. In spite of the fact that we hadn't booked a tour, the staff were very amenable in giving us a quick tour of the winery and a tasting. We ordered medium ("a point") steaks with frites... More

We went to eat here at lunchtime on a Sunday, to find that for an incredibly good value all inclusive price, we could eat and drink as much as we liked! I don't know if this is a regular event or a seasonal one, but it would be worth checking this out before travelling. The place was packed with Lebanese... More

After wine tasting in Bekaa, and stopping by Clos St Thomas and other good wineries, this is a fine place to have a lunch. The garden area is nice and you can taste wine at Kefraya, needless to say. Safe bet for taking people out of Beirut on day trips.

This place was recommended to me, so had quite high expectations and drove all the way from Zahle to come here for dinner. It's nice to drive down the Beeka valley and the wooded grounds and gardens when you arrive are encouraging. We first sampled some wine in the Chateau Kefraya shop behind the restaurant and bought a few bottles,... More
