Al Mandaloun sur mer is located on the end of a small peninsula next to downtown, so you can look back at beirut and at night sat outside the view is stunning. It is just past the Biel exhibition centre and then its suddenly hidden around a corner with trees screening it from everything around it. Its primarily a fish... More

A nice and cozy ambience, a delicious selection of fresh and neatly presented starters and you get to choose your favorite fish from the display. The chef gave us a helpful hint on what and how much to order. Food in general was to our liking and we were lucky to enjoy an outdoors table with a nice bay view.... More

The food is fresh,... More

We have been there as it was recommended by Lebanese friends. The mezes were fresh and good but fish was below average. The deserts were not good at all. We paid $75 for a fix menu + drinks which ended up $100 per person. There are much better restaurants in Beirut where you can eat much better food at lower... More

But the truth was not as beautiful as what we heard. The restaurant was more than half empty which is weird... More

Excellent seafood, and friendly service. Mezze dishes are fresh and tasty. White wine was served fresh. The only tarnish unfortunatly, is smoking from cigars and chicha. Very unfortunate for such great place.

A old restaurant with no personality, service is average and not much help from staff when ordering, food is fine nothing really stands out at the end of the meal we got a set of about 8 little cheap desserts. OVERPRICED restaurant not worth the money. I would not recommend it and never going back again.

If you like fish straight from the Med, if you like a restaurant sitting at the sea, if you like excellent service and excellent food, then this place is for you. It ticks all the boxes. The choice of seafood is amazing. It was cooked to perfection.
