“Full of army soldiers”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Visited Beirut in July 2012. When we get to Place de l'Etoile it was full of army soldiers guarding it. To enter the place - you have to go through the post where you must show your bag. Due to the number of soldiers - many places are forbidden to photo. We didn't like the place

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.
