Beautiful bar and incredible steak with lovely views of the sea. Worth a visit if nothing else but for the view and a drink, but wonderful service and food as well.

Splendid view. But the service became slow. Waiter justified the overcooked meet, but the manager intervened nicely and wanted to change. I refused. They did not charge the coffee and the desserts. A taste of style long gone.

Me and Wife just keep going there over and over again. Our first romantic dinner was there and each time it brings a beautiful reminiscent and it is our favorite place for a dinner or just having a cup of coffee over a beautiful roof top with nice views. Highly recommended

A must if you want a feeling of how Beirut was in the good 60s and 70s. Bar is renovated with superb service. No doubt the Intercontinental hotel service standards. However, very expensive even if it is a five star hotel bar .

Description
Sydney's, located in the majestic Le Vendome Hotel Beirut is, once again, a gathering point for both the young and old generation. Because of the talent of the famous architect and designer
French interior of Pierre-Yves Rochon, the restaurant's interior received a cosmetic facelift, adding more modern design touches and lighter colors choosing a very British setting, the latter are infused with modern and trendy breath. Tables Mixed Media Digital Art done by the young Lebanese artist Selim Attieh adorns the walls. The breathtaking view of the Sea continues to add a magic moment, whatever the time and season. Not to forget the undeniable flawless service and impeccable food with the signature dishes of Sydney's and additional mouthwatering plates for you to discover.
The place is busy and ready to welcome guests starting 6am with a unique continental breakfast, followed with lunch, afternoon coffee and tea, then of course comes a romantic or business dinner, depending on your mood. Any minute in between, you're welcome to come in and enjoy the whole new set up...
Named as a tribute to its first manager John Sydney, Sydney's has remained one of the most fashionable entertaining destinations since it opened in 1996. Celebrated for great food, drinks and wonderful cocktails, Sydney's is without a doubt the true culinary experience of Beirut all of which can be enjoyed 24h with a spectacular view over the Mediterranean Sea.
