I’ve been to Riwaq for breakfast, following the Monocle guide suggestion. The place is cozy and the owner is very nice, speaking English and French perfectly. I asked for a typical Lebanese breakfast and it was very good. Hummus, cheese, homemade jam and other small...More

I had breakfast in Riwaq and I have to say I was stunned. It was rich, beautifully arranged and most importantly extremely tasty. The guys here are very friendly, the music is good - what more could one want?

Really amazing atmosphere - I went to a poetry reading there and it was just beautiful. The bar staff are great and there are loads of interesting people and a lot of internationals! It had quite a hipster vibe!

A small bar close to where we were staying at Zanzoun in Assad Street. We came for a night drink before going to bed. Good service of Hendricks based gin tonic. A small minus for to loud music (or maybe we were to old.....)

I went here three times during my week in Beirut. Fun crowd, good food, excellent drinks. Nice bartenders. Added bonus: live rap show across the street one Sunday evening! Was such a memorable night

Cozy space in the heart of Beirut and very sociable staff. And the fact that it is off the main road is a big plus since it results in a quiet ambience during the day. It surely can get crazy during nights with events.

Almost impossible to review Riwaq. People, location, food and coffee are superlative. Ideal for focused study as well as intense jam sessions! They host gigs from time to time and if you attend the happy hour you will meet a bunch of interesting people, a...More
