La Gar­gote

“This restau­rant spe­cial­izes in French cui­sine. I’ve been go­ing to La Gar­gote (aka Le Gar­gotier) in Broumana for the past 40 years and they still sus­tain their qual­ity of food and ser vice. The am­biance is re­ally nice – it’s cozy; per­fect for win­ter and a fa­mil­iar restau­rant where you’ll al­ways see fr iends. I al­ways have the Poulet a la Proven­cale.”

Chez Sami

“I con­sider Chez Sami to be the best fish restau­rant in Le­banon. I’ve been go­ing there for over 25 years, from when they first be­gan as a very small restau­rant. It has a great lo­ca­tion by the seafront. My Fa­vorite dish is the lo­cal Sul­tan Brahim fish, Merou and fat­toush.”

Bur­gundy

“Bur­gundy has the best chef in the countr y for his cre­ativ­ity and the restau­rant uses the best prod­ucts. It has mod­ern dé­cor and at­tracts a high-end clien­tele. My fa­vor ite dish is the wagu beef as a main and the frog legs as a star ter, which they are known for.”

Fadel

“Fadel Bik­faya is one of the clean­est Le­banese restau­rants with ex­cel­lent ser vice. The set­ting is fam­ily-ori­ented, mak­ing it per­fect for a fam­ily lunch on the week­end. Their meat dishes are ex­cel­lent and the meat­balls in par tic­u­lar are amaz­ing there.”

Al Sul­tan

“I dis­cov­ered Al Sul­tan by ac­ci­dent and have been there over 15 times. When I in­vite friends they al­ways tell me that I’m crazy for tak­ing them, but once they’ve eaten there they all end up tak­ing the card. It has the best birds that you can eat in Le­banon – they’re my fa­vorite dish along with the hum­mus. The olive oil they use is also great. The place has a head­waiter that has been work­ing there for the past eight years, who gives great ser­vice.”
