Enchanting place right on the edge of a rock by the Mediterranean Sea , to get to this place u will be transported to old streets where ancient times stood still. Greeted by Maguy herself, tiny lady with a big heart, you feel like you are entering a magical fishing boat. The staff is warm and down to earth, the... More

If you are looking for a place that is different from mainstream Lebanese restaurant, but still serves Lebanese cousins and fresh fish, this is where you have to go! A private house turned into a restaurant it is Maguy's reign. Here you can have grilled fish sitting on the cliffs and facing the sea. Fish will always depend on daily... More

Get the grilled fish it was amazing! You pick your own fish and then they prepare it for you. The fattoosh was also delicious. Unfortunately the parking is terrible but if you're staying in the hotels nearby you can just walk there. Or park by the church. We even saw a couple swim up from the ocean.

The restaurant is located on the beach in batroun. Very nice location. It's a very nice experience, very nice to try. Very colorful restaurant. Maguy herself is so welcoming, as she turned her house to a restaurant. The food is good and the atmosphere is amazing.

Love to go there at the end of a long week, relax, enjoy the waves hitting the rocks just beneath us. Greeted always by a smiling Maguy, we enjoy the fresh fish and the quick service of her staff. Why not try the Lebanese 'sashimi' style fish, prepared with ginger and olive oil! Will be back again and again

The restaurant is located pitoresque at the beach in Batrun but this is the only positve aspect. 1. It was already difficult to reach the place, because somebody very clever had parked in the entrance way , that we had to squeeze between car and dirty wall. 2. The outside area was furnished with plenty of different plastic and wooden... More

Chez Maguy was discovered & put on the map of culinary ecstacy by the only & only Anthony Bourdain in his visit to Lebanon. Maguy is a short stout woman whose cooking has established her as a must visit chef in the region of Batroun by the sea, located near the phenicia wall, it is an amazing setting especially if...
