The restaurant is next to water cascades, so you can hear the waterfall as you eat and it gives you a sense of coolness and freshness. It is a family restaurant, so expect children to be playing around. They have they own playground, though. The food is very good, they have all the traditionnal mezzé dishes such as hommos, foul, tajin, grape leaves, etc, but also trouts, kebab choices and frog legs, if you like this delicacy. The service, as always in Lebanese restaurants, is fast and efficient.
Favorite Dish: Trouts are a specialty in the region, they are worth trying for basic healthy food.

To go to Aanjar you take a minibus from Cola station to Chtaura, where you change to a service taxi. To go to Cola station I paid 1000 LL for the service taxi (I said alf (1000) as I stopped it but thought the driver was going to say 2000 LL, which he didn't). The minibus from Cola to Chtaura was 3000 LL and it took about 1 hour. The service taxi to Aanjar from Chtaura was 2000 LL (and that was what everyone had told me). Leaving Aanjar the man at the ruins said I should pay only 1000 LL for the service to go back to Chtaura. To get the service back I walked down to the main road and there I just waited a few minutes before a service came. Back in Chtaura the bus was just about to leave for Beirut.
Back in Beirut I wanted to go to Hamra. From Cola there are three city buses going there, number 1, 3 and 12. The city bus cost 500 LL.

When visiting 'Anjar , and any archaeological site for that matter, it is not ethical to remove anything from the site.
When we were at 'Anjar one of the party picked up a piece of broken pottery , a potsherd, and was holding when when one of the site guides, not our guide, was giving a short lecture. He noticed she was holding it and started shouting at her, saying it was forbidden to take anything from the site, because at some future date archaeologists might try to put things together.
The poor girl was mortified.
Tour guides should warn their clients of this beforehand.
