Loud place, always crowded, ice cold beer, with plenty of nice snacks. Specialties are the middle east foods, combined played and the 'kibe', rolled fried ground meat with wheat. Have fun! Never mind the waiter that some times are tough to get hold of!

I have been eating at Beirut since the early 1970's. And though I no longer live in Brasilia I never miss going here at least once a visit. The oldest middle eastern restaurant has really good fried kibe. I measure all other kibe against theirs. The babaganoush is acceptable if not great. The Beirut sandwhich is tasty but it takes...

The mood is very cheerful with ice cold bear (as you would expect) and food to match .. I would recommend without hesitation

Great place to go with friends and taste their unique drink Batida Verde. Food is simple and well done. The only strange thing was there were very few people on a friday night - none if compared to its ever busy North-town counterpart :p

Well, I have to say I'm not quite a fan of deep fried food - mainly because it's not at all healthy.. But this one it SO worth it! Must say that it is huge! I'd say 3 to 4 people could have a nice lunch ordering this chicken milanesa a la napolitana. Besides, Beirute is a nice place to... More

Were at Beirute because it was recommended by friends from here. The food was ok, not very Lebanese, but good. The atmosphere and the local beer was fantastic, must be one of the oldest places in Brasilia. Is more of a local bar/restaurant than a restaurant.

Nice Lebanese style food although there were not proposing some fundamental specialties you would expect in such place. Locally brewed beer was good. Nice place and atmosphere Friendly service

Went with high expectations because I was dying for some lebanese food. It was nothing spectacular. Some of the staples (pita bread, the hummus and baba ganoush) were not great. I'd definitely eaten much better, and for better prices. The kibe was okay and not over-priced. They offer a "lebanese" menu and a "national" menu. In summary: Pro's - charming... More

The restaurant has a certain quirky charm - and the portions certainly are generous - but if you are looking for good quality Lebanese food you'll have to adjust your expectations or order selectively from the menu. Two core classics of Arabic food - tabbouleh and the bread - were really, really poor. If you come from a town or... More
