Few spots in town make you feel like a celebrity while still offering affordable (a bit high but still affordable for what they offer) dinner experience! The clientele is refined, the food is great and well presented, the service is good (can be better for such a venue, waiters and managers tend to be rude sometimes), and the setting is... More

As a food lover and spend 3 meals a day and 6 days a week in the kitchen, the best thing is to have great home food in a homey restaurant like al Mandaloun. Friendly service as usual and excellent food, all you can eat salad bar with daily freshly baked baguettes and cakes. Once that I complained way too... More

What can I say other then a nice place,cosy atmosphere if you choose to sit indoors,eventhough the terrace is great on a sunny day,service is good,food quality is average with a good value for money. if you want to meet & greet someone over a hot beverage & a quick nibble,this is the go to place.

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!

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.
