“Great food in lovely decorated old Lebanese house.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant became my favorite in Mar Mikhael. Very authentic, tasty food in an artfully decorated old Lebanese house. Try the fatoush and take one of the best fresh icy lemonades I've had in Lebanon. You also need to get the Turkish/Lebanese coffee at the end.

“great food, great crowd, cute space!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to me by my hotel manager, so I went there on my own on a Thursday night. The space is adorable, really nicely decorated. It feels very cozy and comfy, and it draws a very attractive crowd of all age ranges. There were AUB students, middle-aged couples, groups of 30-somethings, etc. It's not a scene, but it's great for couples or groups of friends looking for a sophisticated night out.

The food was delicious and served in huge portions! So it's perfect if you're 2-3 people, and share a few mezzes and entrees. For me, I ordered a salad, a mezze, and a main dish and it was wayyyy too much food.

I recommend it.

“The hidden angle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I had the chance to dine there in my last summer vacation in my beloved city. Hidden and almost unnoticed at the beginning of Gemayze street, it is a beautiful place built with the old concepts offering comfort in the seats, tables and disposition of spaces unlike many other restaurants which promote old style. The food is also good at reasonable prices. However, be aware of the confused waiters at peak time.

“Enab Beirut”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Worst experience ever in Beirut! Over rated place with rude front desk employee, not to mention the bad service due to lack of staff! Won’t be surprised if they close down before the end of the year..
