Description: If you want to taste real Lebanese food, this is the place for you! At Beirut Resto-Cafe you can enjoy the wraps, mezze, salads, grilled meat, and sweets that you love so much, but with a modern twist in presentation, taste, and concept. Traditional spices and flavors make each offering an opportunity to experience classic and delicacies in new and exciting ways. Our concept is a quick-service, one is a Shawarma Style Cafe for those on the go, but we also offer a relaxed area in an atmosphere true to Lebanese culture for those who choose dining and lounging. Enjoy your food, lean back, relax and puff on our famous shisha. Savour this fantastic food and drink, and you'll feel you've stepped into the heart of Beirut.

Been here 3 times, food is ok, but I go there for shisha. A little overpriced shisha at $8 but worth it since Harem Lounge down the road is too noisy (shisha for $4 there).

We've eaten here many times and had plenty of takeaways delivered too. Normally go for lunch and have one of the delicious wraps, if there's a better lunch to be had on the riverside for the same price($3) I'm yet to find it. While the wraps are amazing value, some of the meat dishes are on the higher side of average for the sort of place it is but not too bad and very tasty. The humous is delicious, as are the pizza, falaffels and stuffed vine leaves. The only thing I've had that I wasn't too keen on was the mixed vegetarian mezze platter, although my vegetarian wife enjoyed it. There's a shisha lounge upstairs but I prefer walking down to the other end of the riverside and smoking a different type of tobacco instead.

Yes, it's Lebanese food, but without the fragrant and distinctive flavours you'd expect from a high quality establishment. The beef sambosik was dry, and lacking in meat (the pastry was ok) and the lamb shawarma wrap was acceptable, with stingy fillings but lean lamb. Given the outstanding culinary delights that the city of PP offers, unless you've got an uncontrollable craving for Lebanese, you can do better elsewhere.

We have eaten here at least five times over the past eight months and it never fails to impress. Must haves to order are the smoked baba ganoush (ask for an extra pita bread) and the vegetarian falafel for $3. We take all our visiting friends here and they are also impressed and glad they listened to our advice.

We are no experts on Lebanese food but we know quality, freshness and flavor..and this place was spot on.. plus great variety and great service by the wait staff... the only point I will share is that the person who appeared to be managing the place sat in one of the only lounge positions.. We would have loved to have sat there.. She didn't smile and did not acknowledge us at all. I saw her approach one table to rattle off beers but the encounter was short and sharp... Guys service a key element to running a restaurant..The customers expect more these days and see everything..
