Description: Restaurant La Paillote The Sea Food Place is overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and provides the perfect setting to enjoy the freshest seafood caught daily. "I've never thought of our restaurants as temples of gastronomy, they're just places where the fish is fresh and exhilarating and the atmosphere is alive and full of fun. The way we cook and the relaxed way the staff look after you in the restaurants is our idea of what seaside holidays near the saint georges bay in beirut downtown on the Cornish coast are all about." Jean Daou Our menu uses the freshest fish and seafood that is often landed right here on our doorstep by local fishermen...

“Atmosphere and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I spent my birthday there last night with family whilst visiting Beirut. Enormously helpful staff, excellent food and wine and the sea breaking just below the windows make for an atmospheric and warm feeling. The singer who came on, with his excellent Sinatra covers, finished a lovely evening full of laughter and good cheer. I would recommend it.

“Best seafood ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I never had such a good seafood. The entrance to the restaurant some scares, but the interior! Photos of Beirut before the war, sea view as well as menu. Fast and efficient service, offers a choice of fish straight from fridge exposed - you can select a specific one fish Lebanese wine with dinner and you feel the pre-war atmosphere of the city. Awesome!
