Al Balad

One of the best cheap Lebanese restaurants in Beirut’s downtown, Al Balad is an absolute delight whether you choose to dine alfresco or inside. Small, it can accommodate only 30 diners inside and another 30 on the terrace, but it is comfortable, with attentive service. The menu is a typical mix of home-cooked Lebanese mezze to start with and grills – chicken and lamb kebabs – to follow, with a surprisingly complete wine list. 

Al Balad stands out because of its service, the quality of its food and most of all its value for money. In the busy central area just off Place de l’Etoile, it is the perfect restaurant to enjoy a relaxing meal without feeling suffocated by the hordes of tourists.
