The setting is really nice by the sea. Service was ok but the food was really average. Tried the cookie and ice cream dessert but nothing special and too sweet for me.

Our experience at St Elmo's was probably the worst experience we ever had in Beirut. We paid 200€ + for a low quality dinner. We ordered the signature burger and the Mac and cheese that apparently were the signature dishes of the restaurant. The burger...More

While not crazy-priced by Zaitunay Bay standards, you don't get much for your money here. More a place to be seen in the afternoon sunshine. Beware the horrible clouds of smoke from massive cigars being smoked by men who should know it's really not a...More

Yesterday I went to try St. Elmo's for the first time and brought with me my date and some high expectations. The reception was good and the setting on sunset was perfect. Their table and couches were meant to be stylish-rusty but no one was...More

An escape from the dreary restaurant grind, St. Elmo's serves elevated pub grub in a retro-urban seaside setting. Packed with 'crowd pleasing fare', the look is simultaneously rough and quaint, in a struggling-artist sort of way. The restaurant owes it's name to St. Erasmus of Formiae, the patron saint of sailors who is affectionately known as St. Elmo's. Attempts at culinary categorization are futile since St. Elmo's is more seasonal and inventive than Beirut's best brasseries but cheaper and more accessible than what you find at the great bastions of haute cuisine. Specializing in down-home dishes like rich and gooey 'Mac & Cheese', the 'Classic Fish & Chips' and a plethora of other sudo-traditional foodstuffs, St. Elmo's has managed to capture the elusive mix of style and spirit of 'the perfect day at the beach'.
