“Good pastry. period.”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Went there for lunch, at their Gemayze branch. The salad ordered came to be made of old duscoloured lettuce leaves, the sauce tasted "off". The chicken sandwich ordered for my friend was too simple, but costed like it was ordered from overseas.Service was average.

“Great ambiance”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

The garden setting is a welcome relief from the mayhem of the Beirut traffic and it is a very pleasant place to sit and enjoy the people and the ambiance. Service was impeccable and the food delicious.

“Great meeting place, great food”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

Sit outside among trees in the garden, great service and hangout area - the traffic noise can be a little intense, but hey, it's Beirut.

“Tartes et Croissant”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Yes Tartes et Croissant and that's it! Don't get me wrong their food is good but the tartes are mouthwatering and so are their croissants! Paul is a nice restaurant ( a bit snobish ) but with a nice cozy ambiance. It works best for a nice date, a girls brunch, or a important business lunch. Their menu is not so versatile but it has some decent choices. Their burger is very good chokingly , as it isn't the place that comes in my mind when you think of burgers. Their staff is professional, french style service, so some will find them a bit rude or not so friendly. I usually prefer to sit inside. You 'll find people of all ages at Paul. And every time I am there I stumble upon someone famous, from musicians, to writers, to politicians, to journalists ect...
