by call_me_rhia

Le pecheur is a posh-ish fish restaurant on the corniche: great food but quite expensive. Walimah is owned by two lebenese ladies and you'll get home-cooked traditional meals. it's in Hamra. Istambuli is popular with lebanese families and has a large selection of kebabs: it's in Hamra, too

Favorite Dish: Le pecheur: mixed fish platter or fish kebabs
Walimah: great kibbeh (but menu changes daily)
Istambuli: shish kebab and fruits

Address: in beirut
Directions: see above for general directions, or my Beirut page for detailed addresses
