“Good food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

A group of nine of us ate here after reading the reviews. We all had the mezze at 29 euros a head. The food was plentiful and of an excellent quality. Service was also first class. Afterwards we turned left out of the restaurant and visited Papa Joes Jazz bar which was awesome!!

“Wonderful evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

We visited Beirut on 31st October. Absolutely fantastic service, friendly staff and amazing food! The restaurant is hidden away but is a real gem - we visit Cologne as often as we can to visit our daughter who lives there. We will certainly be visiting again on our next trip. A great night!

“Bad experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had gone to Cologne to celebrate my daughter's 25 th Birthday and wanted it to be a special occasion. We zeroed in on Beirut after reading great reviews on Trip Advisor and as it also had wide choice for vegetarians. It turned out to be a big disaster. We first ordered a platter of mixed vegetarian starters along with Bear and Juice. We wanted to order the main course after savouring the starters. Hardly had we taken a bite from the starters, when the waiter started hovering and asking what we wanted to order further. He made it very clear that we can't take our time in deciding further courses when the Restaurant was full. It was a different matter that the Restaurant was quite empty by the time we left. We were almost forced to order a no of dishes before we had even tasted all the starters. We wanted to leave the Restaurant there and then but did not do so as it would have spoiled my daughter's mood. We couldn't finish all the dishes that we had been forced to order and got them packed to carry home. The taste of the dishes was also nothing to write home about. All in all it left a very bad taste in our mouth and spoiled my daughter's big day.

“Completely over rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went to Beirut based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and was dissapointed. The food was mediocre at best, nothing special at all. If you are after ethnic food in Cologne then you are spoilt for shoice with the many, excellent Turkish cuisine available on every street corner. The service was non discript, the plate did come filled to the brim with salad and if quantity is what one is after then give it a go.
