Its trendsetting décor - designed by Architect Issam Barhouch - is seamlessly and flawlessly integrated into a restored historic building located on 752 Gouraud St. The visual surroundings are enhanced by the unique selection of music and presents connaisseurs with a most satisfying sensory experience found nowhere else in the region.The menu of Mediterranean, Asian and Peruvian fusion, designed by Chef Maroun Chedid, sets Gilt apart from other restaurants of its caliber. Each signature menu item is a perfect balance of color, texture and flavor intended to make each mouthful an elevated gastronomic event.Gilt’s subtle, metamorphic nature confirms its position as the go-to place for all those seeking an experience unlike any other and ensures that one will return to witness this transformation time and time again. The exuberance of the space, the cultural integration, the food, drink and functional comfort rapidly cements Gilt’s reputation among Beirut’s trendsetters.

“Very nice place!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

The food is very good, and the drinks are amazing! You'll find it quite expensive but the atmosphere is great, it's always full and the music is very nice so it should be worth it to spend a night with friends there for dinner and drinks !

I remember the burger wasn't bad and the quinoa salad was delicious!

“Indulging your senses even for Lunch!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Been to Gilt several times already for Dinner & Drinks, and let me congratulate them for the consistency of the food and the service. It was not until last week that i discovered that Gilt opens as of noon and serves lunch... For once, i did not feel "Guilty" ordering their delicious calamari salad, Steak Tartar, Truffle Risotto and the mouth watering Banana Pie!

“AMAZING!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

One of the best restaurants in this crazy city! The food is wonderful, the atmosphere is fantastic and the music is super chill. The new menu has a variety of items so you'll never be disappointed with anything that you choose; that said, I highly recommend the shrimp carpaccio, quinoa salad, and the burger (YUM!).

“excellence!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Unmistakably one of the best places to visit in beirut. Marvelous food, drinks and atmosphere. And the music! It cant get any better! Too bad for the place's acoustics caused by the high ceilings, the owner is working very hard on that, the music is too good to echo!! Still, the place is not to be missed!!

“Funky restaurant in a funky neighboorhood”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Gilt is a successful new addition to the eatery scene in Beirut both in terms of design/ambiance as well as food quality. The chair sculpture at the entrance is exquisite as well as the layout and the space utilization. The modern/sober colors works well with the traditional architecture and gives the place an atmospheric ambiance that the resident DJ puts to good use. The menu is eclectic and the food is good. The ceviche was fantastic and the foie gras was good. The dessert while creative needed some work especially the caramel au sel de mer which lacked both the caramel taste and the saltiness as well as the pain perdu. Maybe next visit.
