I heard about this place long time back, but didn't expect that the food is like this. Unfortunately all fish was not tasting good. Only the one made in the oven was good but fried just forget about it. The mezza was really bad. The only good thing is the service & the location with view to the see. Price... More

One of the best sea food restaurants in beirut with amazing views over the Mediterranean Sea . Best service and quality of fish which come at a price. Some specialties and shisha is also served on the terrace . A must .

The location is next to the water which is nice and in a peaceful location. The drive to the restaurant was a little strange going past a dirt road, lots of industrial sites etc but then we realised we were in the right place. The staff are friendly and we got a table on the waterfront, which was peaceful other... More

Well to be honest and fair this review is gonna get a 2.0 JUST because the location is perfect (with a bit of garbage smell) and the service is up to the expectations , But when it comes to food , well the seafood cuisine market is a fierce competition and if you're not able to maintain that , a...

Nice place to visit if you enjoy a sea food meal. Great service but most of all a very nice view over the sea! Recommended.

We sat with a fabulous view of the twinkling lights along the coast. The fish here is excellent - you can go to the 'fishmonger's' counter to pick your main course and it is prepared to your instructions. The food was good but not spectacular and the first courses and puddings were tremendously generous. The main course (grilled fish) was... More

This restaurant has probably the best location for a restaurant inside Beirut. Right on the waterfront... It was splendid especially that the weather was ideal for sitting outdoors. I was not very satisfied with the food and the value... Compared to other fish restaurants in Beirut they give much better food quality, variety and quantity for the same value... Some... More

This is not a place to visit if you're in a budget. The food is great, from variety to presentation to taste, although the fried calamari needs an improvement. It's the place to see the who's who of Beirut, great place for a Sunday family lunch with an outdoor playground. The setting by the water is so relaxing. Love this... More
