I have been a couple of times to the Kaslik branch of Republic. During the summer, there's outdoor seating which is nice. As for winter, indoors is large as well but the problem is with the hubbly bubbly which can become suffocating. Downstairs there's a play area for children which includes a bowling alley. Food is average, prices are average.

As far as it goes for a shisha café like Republic, they really did a good job raising the bar, the food is tasty (mixed grill is simply the best), desserts are generous (try the profiterole!!! Its huge), they have outside and inside seating and a rooftop for a more in lounge music type of experience, so yeah its nice... More

This is a good spot to recoup, smoke hooka, and simply relax. The food is consistent and good. This is not fast food but good food and nice atmosphere to chill out for a while.

Visited Republic Jbayl for a dinner, service was good, however the food needs more attention. Big menu which affects the identity of the restaurant and creates a confusion to the guests. We couldn't know what to order or what is the restaurant specialized about, is it Lebanese, Japanese, American or What?? GREEK Salad looks like everything except Greek Salad. Location... More
