Everything is unique. And I mean Everything: ice tea peach prepared in a special way, top wine selection (musar jeune as a wine by glass), rich salad bar, sandwiches... My unique negative comment remains the over-price of the sushi pieces.

Located in Dbayeh away from the hustle and bustle of Beirut, Mandaloun Cafe is really a gem in every sense of the word. The Mandaloun brand in Lebanon has become synonymous with excellence and this place is no exception. The food is really out of this world along with the service which surpasses some of the best restaurants I have... More

Indoor venue in addition to a beautiful garden. Now for the breakfast. The formula they offer is a tiny buffet placed where they put the salad bar items for lunch... More

Nice location, good service medium high quality. However, does not justify the overpriced bill in any way. 6 USD just for 50cl water or more than 6 USD for an Edamame on a paper table cloth. In the past was not like this (I go every year since a while). Maybe the success well exceed the current performance.

Great for business lunch in the heart of the city in Achrafieh, good selection and plat du jour every day. I recommend this restaurant for lunches mainly and service is great. Valet parking is a must since you are in achrafieh and there is no where to park

The best salad bar in Lebanon! It is really great with all the wide varieties on the station. The plate is big enough unlike other places where the plate is tiny. The service is great as well and the staff is really friendly. The setting is very nice...In addition to this, they have a delicious Siyadieh done every Friday! I... More

Beautiful café located in Dbayeh. It has a cozy setting although it's quite spacious and gets very busy in the evening. It has a very comprehensive menu, but we ended up choosing salad bars. The salad bar is very fresh and has a very generous selection. One tip is to go a little early as they don't take reservations and... More
