My wife and I came across this restaurant by accident. Aside from low-volume broadcasts from two wall-mounted televisions (a pet peeve of mine in any establishment that wants to be respected as a quality restaurant), we were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter was excellent and our food was delicious. When we declined coffee and dessert, the hostess provided us with a... More

We are at the sister restaurant the week prior in downtown Panama City- was wonderful food and fun to hear the music and belly dancers. After our week in Buena Ventura, we decided to do Beirut again in this location. It's a very clean restaurant and nice staff- the service was prompt and polite- we just felt the food quality...

I had been there several times, because we live around the area. We found the place good enough for the choices in the beach, and the waiters staff very friendly, so never had a reason to deal with the manager. But in my last two visits, we had problems with the food ordered and asked for the manager to clear... More

It is a bit of a surprise to find an authentic Lebanese restaurant inside a tourist resort. The food at Beirut is delicious, serving sizes are very generous, and very good value. We especially had hummus and freshly made steaming pita, lamb kabobs, fattoush salad, chicken shwarma and grilled salmon, and all were excellent. We hope to return before the... More

We just spent 3 months in Playa Blanca and ate at Beirut at least twice per week. The Greek salad and pizza were our favorites but their chicken menu items were also excellent. A lot of the staff spoke good English which helped my experience there. The decor and lighting are amazing. We were also impressed that the servers would... More

Inside Playa Blanca resort, Beirut is the best place for dining. Constant quality food, Libanese style, and attentive staff make it a great place. There are 2 points only you may dislike: - location without a great view - the Libanese cuisine after some time.

This restaurant is on the way to JW Marriott where we are staying. May be about 2 miles away in a condo complex. We were delightfully surprised how good the food was and plenty of it. We took our own bottle of wine and enjoyed it with our meal - no questions asked. We had a fish dish and to... More

We had eaten at the Beirut Restaurant in Panama City and wanted to try this one in Farallon. Same menu, same prices, same good food. We were really impressed by the size of the portions for each item. We could have had lunch just on appetizers. Needless to say, we took food home with us. We ate at the outside... More
