Chez Sami, despite its legendary brand, is losing momentum. The clientele is shrinking, quality of its fish supply isn't consistent the way it use to be. I still go there once a year to remain a familiar face.

On the terrace, tables are directly facing the beach. The restaurant is big, you have some space to stay with your friends/family. They have the best seafood ! It's a bit expensive but it truly worth it. The staff is very nice and available.

One of the best restaurants in Jouneih. Go for the whole fish cooked in sea salt. Spectacular! Wonderful night and good staff.
