Knafah!!!! A million exclamation points is how you feel after you have a slab of knafah and a coffee at this legendary place. Knafah is the pastry with melted sweet cheese in the middle of two sort of crumbly layers. There are squeeze bottles of sugar syrup on every table--nuts. You can't miss it--the building is painted up to look ...Popular withFoodies
This is the place to go to see the Lebanese living the good life. The clientele here is glamorous and certainly know hows to enjoy live. They've also been through enough hard times to really believe in carpe diem. The food here is good -- a mix of pasta, salads, and upscale versions of local food but the real draw ...Popular withLuxury
This is basically ground zero for Lebanon's artisanal and regional foods. The great thing about the country is that it's so tiny, it's feasible for kindly old grannies to trundle into Beirut once every couple of weeks and cook up an enormous lunch, then go home the same night. Tawlet serves a lunch that changes daily to focus on a ...Popular withGreenVegetarianFoodies

For a delightful daily continental breakfast buffet form 8:00 til 12:00 or just to sip some coffee after lunch, Mandaloun Café is the place to relax instead of that afternoon nap. This well decorated 'hotel-lobby-style' bistro is worth visiting at any time of the day.

The nice touch, that makes a Lebanese chicken sandwich, is they roll it up in the pita then toast it a bit, so you get ...Popular withFoodiesBudget
This is a semi-fancy restaurant in the downtown area, just off Place d'Etoile. It has some nice sidewalk seating, and prices are pretty reasonable. I was exceptionally excited about it because the menu is a bit broader and has some dishes you don't see very often in restaurants--eggplant fatteh, for instance. And the guys next to me were eating some ...Popular withVegetarianFoodiesFamilies

Luxurious seafood restaurant at the tip of the Jounieh Bay with magnificent view of the mountains, and the interiors are as well. The typical Lebanese Meza and the fishes are very tasty. the one comment i can give, the service isn't stable, sometimes they're perfect and others negligible.
Bargain! This place cooks a few mains and a bunch of salads every day, and you just point and mix and match a little plate. It is totally casual and sweet, and on a very nice tiny side street in Hamra. Very veggie-friendly, and nice for solo travelers too--you don't run into the portion-size problem you do at typical Lebanese ...Popular withBackpackersVegetarianFoodies

DO NOT EAT HERE!!! If you are drunk and do not look at the prices they will cheat you! (Out of 5 dollars or so.) If you must eat here, count your change afterwards.
