The Mzaar InterContinental Hotel is a great place for spending weekends during winter specially when the whole area is covered with snow. However, with all the snow gone and the hotel’s terrace open, nothing beats sitting outdoors, enjoying the view and the delicious open buffet.

I went there a couple of weeks ago and even though it was really hot, none of us was bothered as there was a large tent covering the whole terrace with ventilators all over the place. We had to call and reserve in advance as the place is usually fully booked (mostly families), even though it fits 600 people.

The buffet offers a large variety of food for all tastes. Grilled Salmon, Shrimps, Chicken and Steak, Italian Pasta Stand, Quesadillas, Pizza, all sorts of Lebanese Mezza, Sushi, Salads, Cheese, Raw meat, Salmon and others all for 45$ per person (Drinks not included). There’s also an exquisite dessert stand and arguile is available for those who want. Added to that, there’s a guy who plays the guitar and sings old rock songs and classics every Sunday and he’s not bad at all if you ask me.

Last but not least, the Mzaar InterContinental is truly a 5-star hotel and its service shows it. The waiters are friendly, quick and helpful, the stands are clean, the cooks are professional, the food is great and everything is just impeccable.
