“Fabulous Crepes, Fabulous Staff”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

This french-influenced petit creperie is a must for any new traveller to the Gemmayze area who just wants to sit with a cup of coffee and google things in a safe, comfortable and unpressured environment. The crepes are a must (I highly recommend the mushroom and cheese one...mmm!) and the sweet crepes are fabulous...if not slightly dangerous. If you ever have a NUTELLA craving whilst in Beirut, come here to get your fix!!

This place is not mentioned on the map on tripadvisor...but it is at the eastern end of Rue Gemmayze just before the intersection/fork with Pasteur Street.

The staff and particularly the fabulous owner Jean Marie are what make this place. When I first arrived, a staff member even kindly offered to assist me in obtaining a mobile phone. Truly caring staff, high quality food, ambience, location and...of course....wifi access are what make this place tops.

Four stars!

“A good table for a cosy and friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

If you're searching for a little piece of France in an atypical place, Le Barathym is your address. Located in the now renown Gemmayze street, it welcomes you for a drink, lunch, dinner and even a Sunday brunch. Whether you're up for a delicious sweet crèpes or a yummy savory one, there's a wide range of choice to fulfill your appetite as well as daily specials. The place offers animations at night, from Karaoke to 80s night music.

To sum up, it's a great value for your money and a very nice and cosy venue for a friendly reunion or a little stop after a crazy Beiruty day.
