This restaurant has already established a brand known for quality. I prefere it for business lunches more than casual gatherings

Auteur asking around as to where to grab a Lebanese dinner, we ended up at Karam. Lucky predicament. At first, we were clearly the 'tourists', but by the end of our meal, we felt like regular locals. The hummus is incredible, but I could eat the spicy potatoes all day long. We liked it so much, we nabbed some take-out... More

Location is so easy to get to! Just a few minutes walk away from the Beirut Souks, behind Herve Leger. Authentic Lebanese cuisine that tastes great!

The reference Lebanese restaurant in Beirut. In a beautiful setting, they serve delicious mezzes but, over and above, very savoury different meals of the day. Their wineleaves were exceptional.

Description
A wonderful Lebanese restaurant in downtown Beirut. The food was wonderful, our favourites were the grilled halloumi cheese, cheese rolls, fatoush salad and moutabel (as well as dessert with white coffee - hot rose water). The wine was also good.
The decor is quite simple and modern, not a great amount of atmosphere but it was all made up by the delicious food and wonderful service which constantly looked after us. You can also smoke shisa if you wish to.
Greatly located in downtown Beirut, near the central mosque. Prices are about average for a restaurant dinner in the centre of town. It was recommended to us by Hotel Albergo, and I was very much satisfied with my evening and will definitely go back.
