Used to be great when it was actually running, but due to the political situation and instability in Lebanon, tourism hasn't been the focal point for the country unfortunately, which lead to Buddah Bar (amongst many other places) permanently closing down.

I love this place since I was working in Lebanon, we used to go there twice a week, it still has its charm, but they need to catch up with the new market, especially in terms of service
