I took some colleagues for dinner here the night we arrived on a work trip. We came to the hotel to check out the options and ended up in Li Beirut. We were escorted down from the hotel lobby and then from the restaurant entrance to our table. It was all very close.

It was 10:30 on a Friday night so the restaurant was empty but for one other diner. Didn't matter to us but it did mean we had incredibly attentive staff. The restaurant itself is beautiful and overlooks the hotel's large pool which was nice at night. We sat outside but still seemed to have air conditioning - oh the wasteful Gulf.

I expected the menu to be pricey but it wasn't too bad. The wine list had plenty of options from reasonable to very expensive. We found a bottle which was around US$40 which was a pleasant surprise. The menu is made up of a mixture of hot or cold mezze and a page of full entrees. The helpful waiter suggested we had a set selection of the cold mezze to start with which we did. It was presented in a very modern way and tasted great. The signature bread and freshly made mini Arabic breads are fantastic too.

We then opted for a selection of hot mezze for our main course which arrived very quickly and was very good, the kibbeh in particular. The service was attentive throughout and surprisingly the restaurant filled up with locals after 11:15. I suppose it's never too late for Lebanese food!

The only thing missing was music. It was very quiet and it had an impact on ambience.
