The location of this eatery was absolutely fantastic. Service was average and so was the food. Attention to details was non existing. Price was a bit on the high side for the quality that we got.

Chez Sami is definitely the best fish restaurant in Lebanon. All dishes are amazing. Prices are on the high side but it is worth it for the service and quality you get.

Well, there are no surprises. Good Lebanese mezze with fresh ingredients. Fresh fish to your choice, but a little overpriced. The service is adequate. And that's it ... you would expect more uniqueness from a restaurant that is renowned to be the best fish restaurant...More
