One of the top Lebanese restaurants! What distinguishes this place is that it has no menu! You pay a flat rate and the food is served according to the traditional Lebanese Mezze! Except that they serve everything with their in-house twist which gives it a yummy special taste!! A must to visit this place if you're in Beirut and looking... More

The building itself is designed in a historical style and the ornate decorations add to the ambience and style. If you have special guests or are celebrating an occasion, Em Sherif... More

This is one of the local's favorited spots. It was over whelming too much food, but I guess they decreased the selection on my last trip. I would still go there for lunch but I'd think it's way too much for dinner. Service and food are first class.

If you are looking for a refined and high-end Lebanese culinary experience in the heart of Beirut, em sherif is the place to be. A set menu composed of dozens of mezze and main dishes will keep on coming. Delicious flavors and signature items. Leave some room for Em Ali desert :) 10/10 remarkable service
