Steak frite and a glass of cab for a quiet meal on a Sunday night. Attentive servers that can manage in all three languages well. A kitchen that understands what medium rare means (a rare thing in beirut). Fabulous

This is a safe bet if you feel like good food, great service and nice ambiance. This restaurant is always full and it has kept its standards! I love everything on the menu, especially the crunchy goat cheese salad and the famous "steak frites".
