You should visit this place with an empty stomach... because you are going to eat a lot! And every dish of meze is, to put it simply, divine! But it is not just the delicious food, the whole experience of this place is amazing. Great setting, excellent service and nice live music complete the package. A bit expensive but totally worth it.

Em Shareef cafe down town is a real change in Lebanese restaurants style. They offer Lebanese food in their own style still while they really keep the traditional flavor. They have the most smiling faces in their shop especially one waiter called TARIQ as he contributed to make our visit a memorable one.

Very good selection of mezes, nice environment but be prepared to eat a lot as menu is fixed (at least 12 cold meze, 5 hot meze, 7 desserts). Better to go there as a group. Some of the food not particularly lebanese related (such as 5/7 of the desserts were basic). Price at $45/ person.

I started going there since 2012 when it first opened. Amazing set up in an old vintage high ceiling property, lavishly decorated with a nice relaxing color scheme and background. The food is scrumptious. Their concept here is to inundate you and bombard with a variety of Lebanese specialties from the moment you arrive which vary from time to time, one doesn’t have to pick or choose, you are literally offered everything you can wish for, every dish served is to die for...so flavoursome, so delicious. It’s an impeccable professional service. I learned how to pick, choose and prioritise to avoid overeating since every dish served is just divine.
This restaurant is a must. The best in the world. I have tried their branch is Dubai but was disappointed. I way much prefer the Beirut original including the Cafe!
