Nice concept. Green building and nice settings facing a good view. A special room is dedicated for children so you can go with family. Food is healthy. Variety of deserts and drinks ! Light music and ambiance should be added to the place for more fun. Reserve of "mostanqa3at" next to the restaurant recommended by the owner over the phone... More

I was at a conference, and this was where the welcome dinner was held. Splendid food, excellent Lebanese wine, and great ambience. The back story is that the chefs here are brought in from the countryside to introduce Lebanese dishes and cuisine beyond the mezze version that most people come to expect. We had a buffet of amazing dishes, both... More

While very tasty, the most important ingredient for such high price flat price should be meat. Most of the times, meat is not the main ingredient. Either you end up with Sujuk, tongues, makanek, etc... I hope they break down prices and allow for people to buy one dish, one salad and one piece of sweet, instead of making us... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant ideal fro brunch or a wonderfully varied lunch. Souk el Tayeb started as a farmers market in 2004, and now offers a range of delicious regional Lebanese dishes and desserts, as well as preserves, jams and sweets that can be bought in the restaurant. The concept is to offer fresh, organic food, with dishes changing weekly, so that one can savour different dishes from around Lebanon. Brunch is offered on Saturday, and during the week a wonderful lunch buffet is offered at a set price, including main courses, appetizers and salads, as well as desserts.The food is nothing short of delicious and the service impeccable and very friendly. The space is light and laid back, with a mixed crowd of lunching ladies, young professionals and some business men, all seamlessly blending in together. There is also a little outside space with a couple of tables.
