Sitting on the rooftop is a must, nice weather. Probably one of the best Shisha places around Beirut and some very good cocktails to go with it. I have not tried the food there but a friend enjoyed his dish. It is a nice place to relax, late in the evening with a group of friends.

large variety of international food ...its good but unfortunately the restaurant has no identity .. but to be fair ..the food was good with nice presentation ....the service was good ...some waiters are great but some of them forgot that guests are around and start yelling to each others from side to side ...should be trained to be more discreet !!! but overall it still a good address in the area
and work a bit on the music :)

Went there two weeks ago with a girlfriend of mine for lunch. The calamari appetizer was good the presentation looked good also, The restaurant itself serves shisha so if you don't like smoke I dont recommend it, I personally don't mind it, because it's spacious and the air circulates well. Our food was good, the taste and presentation. They do not have a specific menu they have everything from hamburgers, to sushi, to platters, to salads, to arabic food, something for everyone. the prices are average, not too expensive and not too cheap. The service was excellent and fast, the waiters and manager were on the floor making sure the customers were satisfied!

I visited republic restaurant couple weeks ago with my friends. we didn't know the type of its cuisine, seems like the restaurant doesn't have an identity, his menu is all over the place. The cuisine had nothing to be proud of. the variety of the food was beyond comprehension, the quality of the food was terrible lacked creativity and flavors. The service employees were far too arrogant and inattentive to the needs of the guests. seems like they picked up this personality from the owners of the restaurant, I hear they are too arrogant and full of themselves.
the restaurant is way overstaffed some servers just bumping into each other like headless chicken running around.
Friend of mine ordered margheritta pizza and there were ants on the board, my mixed grill was way overcooked and the artichoke dip was like a soup. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
I won't recommend this restaurant to any of my friends. What a waste.
