“Same names - different sizes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

When you hear about "Place de l'Etoile", you immediately think to Paris' one, with its very big buildings and the obelisk. In Beirut, the place is on average of the country itself, small but beautiful. You shouldn't miss it for any reason.

“Lacking in local colour a bit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

I visited in night-time and daytime and tried different restaurants. One, on a side street and offering regional cuisine, was very good if with the service appearing a bit tired. The other, offering French cuisine, was run-of-the-mill. This pedestrian area has a number of shops with a variety of goods, including a nice one for cigars. It is walking distance from the modern malls as well. This area is good for a relaxed stroll and perhaps for some browsing of shops - for better value for money, I'd look at Hamra, though the big brand names are better represented around here. I'd sit somewhere here with a nice cup of coffee and watch people pass by...

“Full of army soldiers”
3 of 5 bubbles 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
