Description: CRO MAGNON marks the triumphant arrival of the boisterous American glamor steakhouse to Beirut's Zaitunay Bay Marina. Aptly named after the caveman era this carnivore haven specializes in gargantuesque portions of USDA Prime Beef, bold cabernets, premium cigars, live jazz and an impressive array of fresh seafood. Manned by Montreal pit master, Joey Ghazal, CRO MAGNON is pure theater, with a cast, a stage and a meal that unfolds in three, sometimes four acts.

“For the lovers of quality”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

The local reviews were exciting and couldn't wait to visit. We went for lunch, their lunch menu is value for money at 45$ for a three course meal. We had the tuna tartare and the carpaccio for starters, filet Rossini for mains (perfectly rare with a deliciously cooked foie gras on top. The mash with roast garlic is addictive. I would have it as a meal in itself anytime. The creme brulee with a hint of rosemary with a delicate finale to a beautiful lunch.

We were offered two glasses of a champagne cocktail with grapefruit juice - refreshing but pricey.

The waiters and the service were just perfect, I even had Jad who attended our table offer to clean my eyeglasses!

The setting, the interior design and the bar are worth the trip. Cro Magnon ticked all the elements of a first class restaurant. I will definitely be going back

“If you like to eat like a king... Core is the place”
Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

Outstanding scallops.. Fresh... From Tokyo... And the sirloin was introduced by the Waiter as 120 day grain fed USDA prime and they age it for 15 days... The best I have tasted in Beirut... Reminiscent of Smith and Wolenskies in New York! Been back 5 times already and looking for an excuse to return.. The waiters wear real uniforms and are professionals
