Massaya is a fabulous winery in Faqra. We visited on a Sunday and enjoyed their scrumptious buffet. Although fog rolled in over the mountains, the scenery was still great. The winery tour was interesting and a great prelude to the buffet. There are board games...More

Not really knowing what to expect we pulled up the Massaya met but beautiful dogs and a stunning view. As we entered Karen introduced herself and let us know what our options were. We opted for the tour and 5 wines. I don't eat cheese...More

This is a beautiful space to enjoy a lovely Sunday. The wine is the best in Lebanon, and perhaps anywhere in the world. The buffet changes every time and never disappoints. The staff are incredibly accommodating, especially the owner with his great hat and cigar....More

What is nicer than driving over the mountains to reach the Bekaa valley and within a short drive you are transported to a haven of peace and tranquility. In beautiful gardens amid rows of lavender you will find a lovely spot to enjoy local produce...More

I loved the decoration. Every bit of it talked about wine. The location is on top of the world. The place has good vibes.

The setting is beautiful, however there is no value for the money paid. The long queues for the buffet, the choice of the food offering, the bad quality of the red wine, make your experience so unpleasant. The management has no appreciation to customer feedback...More
