We visited this place on recommendation on Trip advisor. We were not disappointed at all. The food is wonderful the service was amazing. The place has a very positive vibe . Though it was a bit difficult to track the location. Few signs on Main road would help. Must try TAWLET when you are in Beirut.

We had the chance to experience the Tawle in Beit el Qamar. We were a group of 12 persons for dinner. The food was excellent most of it, and the service was so fast and the waiters were extremely professional. I would love to go there again.

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

Description
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.
