Driving passed Dbayeh's seaside road, you'll notice a stone house by the Corniche. "Al Mandaloun" has expanded its business to include Mandaloun Beach Club, a place that has taken its share of hype this summer. The place boasts a pool, a fish restaurant and a Lebanese cafe... We chose to HAVE A BRUNCH BY THE POOL AND SOME SNACKS at the fish restaurant... to the sounds of crashing waves and a view of Dbayeh's seaport, this restaurant will take your breath away.
THIS SUMMER, the fish restaurant promises local cuisine with a touch of modernism. Take the elevator up to the first floor. Four displays of fish welcome you as you open the door... a beautiful setup. Four masterpieces of colors...
one can't but stop to snap a picture. Orange, grey, white and brown, I felt like eating the fish on the spot.
Inside is a beautiful restaurant inspired by the summer season and the sandy beaches of Indonesia. A low ceiling, stone walls and lots of wood with decorative lamps that reflect lines of shadows all around the space.
White colors and light wood with a wide facade of glass provides an open view of the beach. The bar transports you to Santorini, the balcony to Napoli and the main dining room to a cottage house up in the mountains; beautiful decor indeed.
CHEERS TO THOSE MEMORABLE SUNNY DAYS BY THE LEBANSES COAST.
