To say dinner here is an assault on the senses is an understatement. The sheer amount of food is almost unfathomable. In fact, it’s impossible to finish everything you are served! Every conceivable Lebanese specialty makes an appearance from salads, dips (mezze) and grilled meats.

The interior is wonderfully Arabesque, with some clever preservation of the original building design in the ceiling pieced together and propped up with a modern structure. Service is impeccable as you would expect of such a fine establishment and the dinner is more of an experience than just eating out.

At around 10:30pm a 3 piece band take to one of the corners of the restaurant and play local acoustic versions (oud) of Arabic hit songs.

Definitely worth making time to visit during your stay in Beirut

Em sherif restaurant became number one recommended Lebanese restaurant in Beirut, so you should reserve your table well in advance, we faced some difficulty to get our table, about the food, Lebanese specialty fusion mixed that deserve to be one of the best, although the variety and quality is more than enough, but the price is a bit high. It's a place that you shouldn't miss to visit
