Perfect for tourists who want to experience a true authentic experience. Prices are fair, location in the heart of Beirut and the food is very tasty! Try asking the waiter for raw local white fish.

A very good option for a seafood restaurant in the capital, all the other choices are far. Reasonable prices, a la carte or formula eatery. Prices are reasonable, food is good

If I wanted to eat a fish filet, I would have bought it from the nearby shop. When you go to a sea food restaurant you expect to eat all kinds of fish and sea food!

At the front of the Mediterranean Sea in the heart of Beirut. Fish restaurant. Price above average for under average food. Fish are not very fresh, the cooking need a better chef. Friendly staff .

A poor restaurant. The food is more of a scrambled fish than fish. For me, it could have been much better.

been there for lunch, read many things regarding the sea food served and decided to check it out. Impression is very mediocre. Fish is very average and without anything special. Wine list is ok. Service on the level. A positive thing is the octopus they serve for starters, that i could recommend. price - value is acceptable, considering Beirut prices

Thank Сергей Ю

Restaurant La Paillote The Sea Food Place is overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and provides the perfect setting to enjoy the freshest seafood caught daily.

"I've never thought of our restaurants as temples of gastronomy, they're just places where the fish is fresh and exhilarating and the atmosphere is alive and full of fun. The way we cook and the relaxed way the staff look after you in the restaurants is our idea of what seaside holidays near the saint georges bay in beirut downtown on the Cornish coast are all about." Jean Daou

Our menu uses the freshest fish and seafood that is often landed right here on our doorstep by local fishermen...
