Gorgeous restaurant with a beyond stunning view. Food was a little bit pricey but totally worth it when you’ve got such a beautiful view in front of you. Very clean and beautiful decor. Would definitely return on my next trip to Lebanon

The food was good but could be better i've liked the grilled platters meat and kafta. Hummus and warak.enab are tasty but could be better. They have wonderful view for jounieh bay from harrisa.

We took the goat labne and fattoush and they were tasty. Spicy hummus was a disappointment. I recommend reserving in advance on weekends(and on weekdays if you want the tables with panoramic view).
