I went to Batroun the past weekend to drop a friend and decided to pass by Jbeil and have dinner there. I haven’t been to Jbeil souks for a while, so i thought i take a walk and see what’s happening. To my surprise, the streets were fully renovated and packed with restaurants, pubs, shops and lots of people.
Turns out i’ve been missing out since the past summer!
I was advised to go to Ã©cafe and so i did. The place was big and beautiful and was more of a cafe trottoir than a restaurant. The food was also delicious and affordable and most importantly the service was quick and professional.
The only problem i faced were cats, as my gf hates them and i had to interrupt my dinner many times to scare them away lol!
Over all, i will definitly be going there soon to try the pubs and see how’s the nightlife picking up there.
Ã©cafe rocks! I was also about to post something about it on +961. They serve very good entrecÃ´te, and are very fairly priced compared to other restaurants.
Yeah I had a wonderful time in Jbeil when I went there a couple of months ago..have you been to Locanda restaurant? It’s amazzzzing..
i have heard about locanda? is it expensive?
I heard about Locanda but haven’t been there yet. I was planning on going there first before i hit the souks and changed my mind.
I don’t think its that expensive Karim.
Surprisingly, its very average..the price..not the food though! I ate like a queen and drank like a fish (top shelf liquor too) when I was there..and was shocked that my bill was around $50..not too shabby considering an average meal at Roadsters is around $20. Well worth it, and the place is magical itself. They brew their own beer, and you can see the distillation process taking place..I highly recommend you go!
