“Not coming back anymore”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

As we all know Mondo is or at least was very well known for its famous salad bar fresh and diversified. Well last time we actually wiped the plates trying to gather bits and pieces from the ingredients since the management decided not to replenish as the place wasn't crowded and ingredients weren't the quality which we are you used to have.
Too bad the place is from the past now

“Caffe Mundo”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I've visited Phoenicia's Caffe Mondo so many times over the past many years. Although the variety offered by their salad bar has become less diverse and no longer includes meats, the Italian restaurant remains one of the my family's go-to places for a nice Sunday lunch as well as a casual venue for birthday/celebratory gatherings with friends.
The variety has changed but the quality & the freshness of the items as well as the great service all definitely haven't... They continue to maintain their high standards!

“Fabulous Birthday”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

I did not regret choosing Caffe Mondo at Phoenicia Hotel to be the venue of my 45th Fabulous Birthday. Exclusively reserved for the evening for the officers, staff and family members of the Philippine Embassy in Beirut. The evening was fantastic with the head chef serving us sumptuous homemade Italian pizza and pasta. Cocktail drinks were made special plus the Martini Gold by Dolce&Gabbana were extremely unforgettable! Next time guys you celebrate any special event, try Caffe Mondo it's irresistibly fabulous!
