“Fully restored downtown center”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Go there, another must see. Many restaurants and shops, A bit quiet in the evenings, but maybe I picked a weak day.

“much better to have a cafe or lunch here”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

this is on the other side of the newer Souqs and much nicer. Just really a cafe row but at least it is located in the older and preserved area of town. So for a cafe, nargila, lunch or a glass of wine, skip the Souq's and head here

“lovely area packed with eateries and cafes”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

great touristic aura, many cafes and restaurant to choose from, my favourite is Albalad restaurant for good Lebanese Mezza and an "arguile". A pedestrian area with nearby parkings and accessible by taxis which drop you off at the end of the pedestrian streets coming out of place d'etoile.

“Very nice environment”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This area is full of little stores and restaurants that have good quality of food. They have French, Italian, and Lebanese food. Very close to Al-Omari Mosque.
