Though expensive, but it remains the best fish restaurant. Better to go when the terrace is open. Food and service are always up to expectations. Recommended for Lebanese fish cuisine.

It just isn't worth going there. The place is overpriced and food is not that special. They don't have anything that you can't make yourself at home. Also we went on a Sunday and was overcrowded and very loud to the point it became annoying....More

This place has the greatest seafood in Lebanon. Everything with delicious; the calamari (baby, fried, hot and spicy - many different kinds) was superb and the raw fish as well sultan Ibrahim- all excellent. Their desserts are also exceptional. Love it.

Been going to this place for years and it never failed to please me. The seafood is fresh and the selection is wide.

One of the most famous seafood restaurants in Lebanon , focusing mainly of fresh local fish. Serves also Lebanese mezze. Sea view with direct access to the sea. Nice decoration and outdoor terrace. Good service and excellent food. Known to be expensive.

My family and I love having fish for Sunday lunch, and believe me I've tried almost every fish restaurant in Lebanon. Chez Sami remains the best. Taste, generosity, service, presentation and setting are not to be compared.
