“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

I love this restaurant

If you like Lebanese food then this is the place to go

The mezza and main dishes are equally good

The restaurant is located very close to the beach with indoor and outdoor seating

If you look for a good smoke their Shisha is very good

“Run of the mill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

Al Mayas is a decent choice for Lebanese-Arabic food, with something of an Armenian twist. Maybe I'm spoiled. I have lived in Jordan and visited both Lebanon and Syria, as well as Turkey and Georgia, so I have experienced the best of this cuisine, compared to which Al-Mayas fails to impress. I have been there twice (it is walking distance from my hotel) and each time it was just OK. The person who recommended it to me said we had to try the kebab with cherries, yet both times they didn't have it (maybe this is a seasonal thing, but in that case they should put it on the menu only when it is in season). Otherwise, there is the standard set of hot and cold mezze followed by grilled meats, distinguished only by different names. I tend to judge a Middle Eastern restaurant by its bread, which should be freshly made in a wood-fired oven and come to table hot and slightly charred. The bread at Al-Mayas doesn't come close.

If this were a low-priced joint I would consider it a good deal, but it is fairly pricey. If I couldn't walk there, I would never again go.
