Upon your arrival on Friday evening, discover the local culture at the Casablanca restaurant. Located in a white and blue Beirutine house, it offers a magnificent view on the sea and delivers a fish-based cuisine, it’s a delight!

At nightfall, it is in the district of Achrafieh in the restaurant Liza where you must meet.
In a modern and chic place decorated by Lebanese artists, you can taste the local specialities. Our favorite dish? Yoghurt with eggplant and tomatoes, served with a spicy bread.
The ideal place for a convivial dinner with friends.

Our advice to discover Beirut?
Walk as much as possible ! The best way to get to know the city is to stroll around the different districts to soak up their culture and history.
But to get to the airport, you can always call an Uber!
