I have been in this place many times and will go again. I love smoking hookah at the terrace. Great to see the cruise ships coming and leaving and watch other small boats passing by. From November till March you can enjoy a lovely breeze. The food is good, of a good quality (once though I was served a spoiled... More

Your options are limited in an area generally considered edgy if you leave controlled locations. The atmosphere was that of a cafeteria inside and outside loud music thumped and some smoked water pipes. The food and service were OK. What are you going to do? You can't leave the Radisson/shopping center compound.

Grand cafe has been around for many years now and I can say it's one of the most popular Lebanese food places. Indoor and outdoor seating , good variety , good quality good , decent service. Meat and vegetarian dishes make it an excellent choice of place in a mixed group . Their dessert is good too.

Prices were reasonable, staff very friendly service was a little slow but as the ship was delayed that was hardly a problem for us.

I have tried several restaurants in the area, but always enjoy the food at Grand Cafe. Not all staffs speak English, but the few that can a little, try their utmost to assist. They also have a menu in English, so that helps a lot.I like the way that I can choose to either sit inside the restaurant or outside... More

Colin was an interesting place and we happened across this place for a quick lunch stop. Ordered the arroz a la marinera, or paella as I've always called it. Got the order for 2. You could feed four with that amount of food. It was really good. I would recommend it, but be aware of how much you're ordering.

I Think the location of this restaurant is mislabeled. We tried to find it and were unable based on the map in TripAdvisor. I think it is on Calle 11 over by the Radisson Hotel which is across town. They may have moved. We will look again tomorrow as it seems like a great restaurant
