Perfect for tourists who want to experience a true authentic experience. Prices are fair, location in the heart of Beirut and the food is very tasty! Try asking the waiter for raw local white fish.

Restaurant La Paillote The Sea Food Place is overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and provides the perfect setting to enjoy the freshest seafood caught daily.
