We had dinner there on a busy evening and the place was packed, with not much room to maneuver as the tables are so close to each other. We had cold meze and mixed grill/ falafel main course and the portions were huge. Staff was welcoming and helpful just a bit rushed as it was so busy. The food served... More

We've tried a couple of things , all tasty and well done, you can feel the taste of real Charcoal grilling but our favorite will remain them Chicken Wings with freshly cut fries and garlic sauce. In Summer is the perfect place to get a sandwich to go.

It was nothing special the staff was not courteous at and was running around, the bill was placed on the table even before we finished our food, the food was very basic and I think it is Very overrated even on TripAdvisor

We saw the restaurant several times as we walked thru the alleyway during the day. It has a great window so you can watch as the meals are prepared.

My husband is Lebanese and when we travel we use to search for Lebanese restaurants. This is the perfect place in Koln. High quality food, perfect place and super familiar treatment. Will come for sure another time.

We took a fast dinner at Beirut on Monday afternoon. The restaurant was empty. The food was really good and the staff very nice, taking care of us all the time. The prices are rather high for this kind of food but the restaurant is located in Koln old town so - understandable.

A small place just of the busy path. The food was fresh and tasty. A nice place to eat espcially if your're looking for something other than German food.

Went for dinner. I ordered hummus, baba ganoush and chickpea tomato stew. Pitta bread is included which was a bonus. The beer was ok - could have been better. The food was delicious though - some of the best hummus I have ever had. Relatively expensive, but all very good quality. The waiters speak English too.
