U can’t come to Lebanon and. Not have Falafel sandwich!!!!
This is Great location for that. 10 min walk from Phoenicia hotel. Fattoush and falafel sandwich was perfect for late lunch...
A bit on pricy side but service was good and the food was just perfect.

For those who are vegetarians, great place to eat - this is 10 min walk from the Beirut yacht marina too...

I think this is the best Lebanese restaurant in Beirut.Always crowde, yet excellent service. Staff very attentive.
We started by houmous with pine, shankleesh on salad ,kebab nayeh and fattet betinjan succulent.
Then makanek with dips el rommaan the best I had ever.we also had kebba mashwiyyah and kofta very tasty and tender.
For the desert with had konafeh bil jibn and brioche with eshta and pistachio amazing.
Highly recommended but must book ahead.

Em Sherif Cafe is a stylish, classic quality Lebanese restaurant in down town Beirut. It is not inexpensive but the price paid is worth the plates served.The mint lemonade is particularly good though sweet while the taouk is succulent and the vegetable dishes rounded and filling. The figbirds - quails cooked in figs with garlic - may not be to everyone’s taste but an interesting experience. Staff are attentive and numerous
