“Bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

It is too bad that such a great location has very bad service. Besides the below average quality of food/drinks, the waiters are unbearable and very rude.

“Great View, Decent Taste, Bas Dervice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

What makes this place to visit is its location. Directly in front of pigeons rock, you will admire the sea and the great sunset with your freinds, date or family.
The staff though is rude, smelly, and not into restaurants.
If you can handle that, give it a try

“Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

First tip : Do not allow the people outside to park you car , you have the full right to park it yourself , they do not have a parking they will just put it on the road side as anyone can do.

Second tip : It is more nice during the day , specifically go in the morning , waiters will take good care of you.

Location is really great and you will enjoy , prices are relatively high and that's annoying.

“Enjoy The View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

I think it is fair to say that there are much better restaurants and cafes in Beirut but few have such an impressive view. The food is okay and the table staff were very good (contrary to other reviews). If you're driving then parking is a major problem at any time from mid-morning until late at night. Expect to park some distance away and walk.
