No covid procedures or sporadic and inconsistent, starting from owner to supervisors, kitchen, and delivery staff. Imagine that due to lack of standards the cashier could also fix drinks! Manager, one of the two supervisors and owner no mask at all, mingling with customers checking...the ops in kitchen and deal with admin staff also with no masks. Hair in food, plastic in drink, they make you pay the full bill, and they become cranky at you, and so very dirty toilets... the same maid who morning cleans the toilets cleans the floor tables and couches, serving us whatever bacterium we missed from the latrines. have lot of witnesses and victims too. I won’t go there not even for coffee. Besides, it’s excessively expensive compared to same pool of restaurants and by far less tasty. This restaurant is a danger to public health and black spot to hospitality. That might be the reason why the company holding Bou Melhem Restaurant has the name of virtual hospitality.More

Having arrived late in the evening to the place we were staying down the road, we walked in here for no other reason than proximity and serendipity. We came in as the last other guests were leaving but were welcomed with a smile and ushered...in. We ended up staying almost an hour after closing. Since, we’ve had breakfast here twice and decided to take the final dinner before heading bach to Europe here. The food and staff here is just wonderful! Don’t be put off by the size and brightness and somewhat lack of coziness of the place - the food and staff make this place memorable and one to come back to! If you don’t want to take chances at a Lenanese foodplace elsewhere - this place is a safe bet!More

We had a great dinner today. Georges, our server was kind and thorough. We ordered mixed grills, lamb chops and Mille-feuilles fish were all delicious. Portions are satisfactory.

We visited on a Friday night, quite late, as we had just arrived in Beirut. It was clearly a popular place, with (very loud) live music and dancing. The food and service were great and the waiters made some very good suggestions. We enjoyed it...so much we went back on Monday night, when it was much quiter, but the food and service remained of the highest quality.More
