In Broummana there are many restaurants and cafes with very nice views. I went to the nearest café from where I got out of the bus, to have something to drink before walking around. The name of the café was Les Pyramides and from there it was a good view of the valley below with houses and pine trees. An orange juice and a Nescafe was 7500 LL.
I went to Broummana with bus from Abdallah el Yafi Avenue (near the National Museum) in Beirut. The ticket was 750 LL. The problem was that it is not easy to know when you reach Broummana as it is built all way from Beirut. It turned out we had passed Broummana before I asked where to get off (I suspected that), so the bus driver stopped and I changed to a bus going in the other direction.
Leaving Broummana I walked several kilometres to Beit Mary. It was a pleasant walk and luckily very few cars on the road, as it was not weekend.
This restaurant has two branches(in lebanon),one is in Juneih and the other is in Brummanah,but I like the one in Brummanh better because it`s bigger and has a very nice view.
It has big screen TVs playing the latest music hits.
Favorite Dish: All of the menu is a great taste!
check thier web site for more details and the online menu ;-)
This restaurant is a must see in Brummanah,
it has the worth of the Lebanese hospitality and the good tase of the Lebanese cuisine.
It has a large terrace over looking Beirut.
smoking Sheesha(water pipe)and eating the Lebanese mezzeh(appetizers) is a very unique experience.
It has other branches in Beirut but i beleive this is the largest.
have in mind it`s always busy(in the summer time)so it might take you some time before you be seated.But it`s worth the time ;-)
Favorite Dish: Shish tawook(grilled checkin with garlic)
