A really good restaurant with very good value I think. We ordered the sample platter and it is very good. They don't serve any alcohol so bring you're own!

This was our 1st visit to Beirut and we were impressed with the food and the service. It was very reasonably priced . Certainly hope to return soon. It is a B.Y.O.B. The selection of food was excellent and good portion size.

I have been to Beirut several times now and have recommended it to so many people. The food is amazing! It's so fresh and tasty. The service is great, I was recently here with my mum and we only had 40 mins to eat as we were off to the ballet at the festival theatre. We told the waiter and... More

I visited Beirut with a bunch of 5 (very noisy) girls last Thursday 22nd December 16. It's 1 of only 5 halal places in Edinburgh which we were impressed with. The food was scrummy, mainly chicken shawarmas all round. Baclava and mint tea to finish off was a touch. Service was good but not amazing, waiters weren't always attentive but... More

Really enjoyed first and last course of our meal. But been disappointed with mix meats for main, as all meat was dry and hard to chew.

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighbourhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighbourhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
