“Always good”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

It's true that the food is a little old fashioned, but the atmosphere is great and the service fantastic. It's always regular and a great place to eat in a lovely town! We go there every time I'm in Lebanon

“Old but food still tastes great”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

One of the best tables in the area. Nothing fancy, but the meals are very good. The beef filet with herbs is to die for. The Maitre has been there for over 20 years, and treats every customer like a vip.

“Since 1971 its time for a change”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

For a legacy to change it should adapt abd evolve, dinosaurs are extinct. But vintage is revived

The place looks amazing and so real and vintage. The owner is welcoming

However i would suggest that it is time to change the FOOD

What I had yeaterday was a meal prepared in 1971 and was reheated now.

The experience is unique and a must.

“Very average and overpriced”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

My partner and I went for lunch on a Sunday around 2 30, very busy and tight place, service is slow. Food is average and overpriced. I would have much preferred enjoying a lunch at a Lebanese restaurant in the area nearby where portions are much bigger for the same price.

“Average food, great service”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We are UK family living and working in Broumanna/Beirut for 2 yrs. Been to this restaurant as a couple on a busy Saturday night. The staff are very welcoming but the place does feel like you're sitting inside somebody's house as oppose to a restaurant. Garlic mushrooms were good, steak average nothing special. Customers constantly smoke inside and out so all in all an average experience. Pricey for what it is. We much prefer the Buffalo Steakhouse opposite the entrance to the Grand Hills.
