The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. I asked them to make my pasta al dente (had to explain what that meant) and it was perfectly cooked. The waiter Camil really looked after me which was nice being a female solo traveller. The restaurant is on an open air rooftop and from most tables you can see the harbour. They had quite a few wines on their wine list but I would have preferred a better choice beyond the basics. In any case it was a wonderful experience.

We had a wonderful experience at Malena while visiting Lebanon and highly recommend it. The food and service were excellent as well as the view. The pasta dishes and the calamari were delicious. Overall, a great experience!

after I finished from the Beach I went to that restaurant (15 minutes walk). I ordered fried and barbecued shrimps with green salad. the food was so good. the outdoor seating was perfect where you can watch the sunset over the sea.
