If you're looking for a warm and intimate setting then Al Mandaloun Cafe should be on your list of places to go. My family members and I ordered several dishes and shared them while some of us had the salad bar. The food was okay and the salad bar had a good variety and plenty of fresh items but the... More

I went to Al Mandaloun for a business lunch, and it had all the elements required: Great and fast service, good menu, served fast, so easy in easy out. I was however the first time I had a square cordon bleu instead of the most common wrapped shape, nevertheless it was very good with wedges. Recommended - Will visit again!

Great place for lunch, nice high ceilings and decent good food. There is a Salad bar, good for a club sandwich.

I just love this place, especially the one in Dbayeh. I think they have one of the nicest settings ( outside for summer and inside lovely for the winter, very nice decoration). The food is really good, I enjoy their sushis and I believe their salad bar is the best one in Lebanon. Moreover the service is good and I... More

I thought it was a lebanese when I came and by having a read of the menu I realized its a pure french restaurant. Overpriced. The venue is really nice, but I went to have some houmus and I end up having just a coffe not too leave disappointed, because the menu is just a redundant french monologue.

On the Tabaris - St Nicolas road , hopeless to park but a valet service is available . a chic and warm atmosphere , usually packed specially lunch time , staff are kind but sometimes overwhelmed in work and lack professionalism . A bit overpriced place , but in Ashrafieh it is the normal range !!!

The setting is quite beautiful but that's it. The food is not the best you may find especially for the apple crumble where you feel you're digging in a cinnamon pot. Can do better

It is the right place to meet friends and talk for hours over good food. The service is great, the food as well; the salad bar is highly recommended.

This is my second time at Mandaloun Cafe and the restaurant was packed for lunch. We walked in and there was no one to greet us nor help us to be seated, which we did and caught the attention of one of the waiters who then called the hostess who in return chose to approve of our table, all smiles...
