When you visit Lebanon you have to go to this place; great view of the rocks and the sea. The café is very nice; we had desserts and lemonade there, very good. I'm sure the food is good too, cause I saw people beside me...More

Bloody Mary came after 20 mins, which made sense when I realised it was made with lots of ... tomatoes! Arak was a safer bet.

This is the perfect restaurant to go to if you are around the Rouche Rocks. Much better view than the Petite Cafe location. The food is not expensive and really really good. A lot of food for the price. Highly recommend going there around sunset.

The food is good, but not the best in Beirut. I believe the best thing about this restaurant is the view.
