What a beautiful view with super yummy food. The BBQ fish is delicious. Appetizers were very tasty. The view on the beach was extra ordinary. We all were taken by the gorgeous setting and great food and service

The restaurant is located overlooking the sea with amazing view, the terrace is very beautiful to be when the weather allows. The food is more than delicious, large variety of fish. You choose from fish on display and choose how to have it cooked.

The quality of food is good and the service is very efficient. If weather is good you can seat outside and enjoy the view over the citadel.

Saida Rest House has a very nice location by the seaside and with a view on the fortress. The architecture is very unique, the dishes are delicious, the portions are small and the prices are high. Staff are friendly and welcoming.

Restaurant located right by the sea which gives him an enormous advantage over its rivals in the area. Food if gd quality, service is up to the expectations. However, restaurant needs major uplift especially the bathrooms which are overused. Overall, enjoyable moments

We had lunch here as part of an organised tour so weren't expecting much, but we were served fresh, tasty Lebanese food and plenty of it. Service was suitably attentive as well. Since the price of the lunch was included in the tour price I can't comment on whether the normal prices are worth it, but the position of the... More

The location is amazing, the food isn't. Its simple, bland and overpriced. I've been several times and was never impressed.
