Em Sherif Restaurant is an institution in Beirut and a must visit.
The food is simply amazing, for Lebanese food is absolute top.

Service, ambience everything is what you would expect. There is no food menu, basically you sit and they starting bringing food. The charge is for person and for European and US standard I found the restaurant very reasonably priced, especially having in mind what you get for it.
The quality and the quantity of food is sublime.

You need to forget your diet visiting this place; I’m not sure how many dishes we got they were more than 30 for sure.

“Only” 8 kinds of deserts for 2 people ☺.

You can smoke nice shisha with your meal both on the first floor (the music is on the first floor) we were in the second floor, which was a bit more private.

Some famous Lebanese designers were in the restaurant the night we had dinner.

Surely this place is for the rich and famous in Beirut.

Important note, you need to book this place way in advance. When we dined in the beginning of August, they were taking reservations for September.
