“too crowded for comfort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

this resto had its glorious days for sure. it is still one of the busiest and most reasonably priced places, BUT... lately it is turning into something more like a cantene. You go there, you are seated at your table at the outstretched terrace, the waiters Hurry to take your order, they Hurry to bring your food, they Hurry to change your plates...you feel like you are pushed towards eating quickly and moving on, specially with thall the hustle bustle that is going around . Between customers and waiters it is becoming toooo crowded and noisy for comort, In addition the quality of the food is not what it used to be, although the plates are well presented with generous portions for sure.we also missed seeing the welcoming face of the owner in the kitchen.

“Best Lebanese Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

I love it! very tasty and diverse selection of Lebanese food and certainly great service. If you visit Lebanon, make it a point to go up to the mountains (Brummana) and have lunch or dinner at Mounir!

PS: It is highly recommended that you make reservations as the restaurants tends to be full most of the time.

“Absolutely fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Only three words: Oh-My-God! The food is amazing, the view is beautiful, the service is great. We had the luck to go with a lebanese family who use to always go to the restaurant, so we were delighted with the best seat and the "mezze" ever!!

Every ingredient was fresh and tasty, and the dessert area was also great. Not a single complain. I look forward to go there again soon.
