What a great concept! Wish this existed in other cities as well. Others have described it well here but basically they serve breakfast (8am-10am) and lunch (1-4pm) M-F while on Saturday they do a brunch only (12-4pm). Each day there is a new chef from...More

The chef’s proud (and welcoming) smile from behind the buffet display says it all. My son works in Beirut, recommended it, and took us there. He knows what is what and enjoyed his selection. My wife, through previous visits, asking questions, and a Coll’s observation...More

Really good, fresh produce but on the expensive side. Would be fun with a large group and a huge appetite.

Tawlet is a foodie paradise. It offers home-cooked Lebanese food at a daily lunch buffet. The cooks and the menu change daily. The setting is lovely, light-filled and contemporary. Don't balk at the "buffet" part--the dishes are fresh, closely monitored, and beautifully presented--this is not...More

This is a wonderful little restaurant ideal fro brunch or a wonderfully varied lunch. Souk el Tayeb started as a farmers market in 2004, and now offers a range of delicious regional Lebanese dishes and desserts, as well as preserves, jams and sweets that can be bought in the restaurant. The concept is to offer fresh, organic food, with dishes changing weekly, so that one can savour different dishes from around Lebanon. Brunch is offered on Saturday, and during the week a wonderful lunch buffet is offered at a set price, including main courses, appetizers and salads, as well as desserts.The food is nothing short of delicious and the service impeccable and very friendly. The space is light and laid back, with a mixed crowd of lunching ladies, young professionals and some business men, all seamlessly blending in together. There is also a little outside space with a couple of tables.
