It may seem cliché to watch the sunset over the Pigeon Rocks, but totally worth it. And you'll get a front row seat at Bay Rock Cafe. Photographers may have some challenge shooting between the glass half-walls and the sun screens, but you'll find a way. You can see the hole in the "donut" rock from here, which you can't... More

Go have your coffee with the best view in an open terrace. Pefect for during the day breaks. You do not need friends, you can go alone and enjoy your peace of mind...

Raouche is my favourite view in Beirut. Bay rock cafe is a two floor cafe/ restaurant overlooking Raouche. I went half an hour before sunset and the view just took my breath away, I was literally in awe for the hour I stayed there. The food was alright, but the service could have been better. We ordered Lebanese mezze which... More

The place is right in the main corniche, with a great view of the Rock and sea. The food is nothing special, but not bad either. Great place to go to for a shisha and juice and chat the evening away.

Other than the view of the rock everything else was below average. We decided to sit inside because it was slightly hot outside, but the AC was ineffective, it wasn't comfortable at all. Very slow response and service with lazy unfriendly faces although it wasn't crowded. Finally, the food, lamb chops and kabab, was below average. I recommend it only... More
