So this wasn’t my first visit to Catina Sociale, but I am happy to say that they are persistent in quality food and still have a friendly staff!

While still buzzing with life, the ambiance was chill and relaxed as is typically expected.

The food was on par and well prices & the wine selection is unparalleled!

And thankfully the venue still allows dog owners to have their favorite legged companions accompany them so my friend & I got to pet a few friendly furry friends!

Over all, the food is tasty, the staff is helpful & the patrons are also friendly and it strictly humans haha which is refreshing and very welcomed.

My sister took me there for brunch and I was pleasantly surprised by the concept and how charming this restaurant is. You pick your dishes from a menu, pay upfront and choose a table. They have a wide variety of dishes (breakfast and lunch) for everyone including gluten-free items. I had the avocado toast with scrambled eggs and the sandwich with fig, goat cheese, thyme leaves and honey. They were delicious and nicely presented.
I really liked the laid back feel to this restaurant. The staff are pretty nice; the location in central Ashrafieh is ideal since you can walk if you are staying close by.
Would definitely recommend for breakfast/brunch and I would definitely go back.

It is true to it's name - it is a cantina, no waiters you order and get buzzed when your food is ready.
Has a good selection of sandwiches and you can make your own salad.
They specialize in wine & often have wine & cheese nights

Love the place and the concept. It's a self service cantina with very good food and wine. It's a pet friendly restaurant where you can work, meet friends or simply have a glass of wine or eat. Different from ai the other places in achrafieh and centrally located. A very nice place to go chill and enjoy your time. The turkey and cheese caake is a must

There's wine on tap, amazing little gifts (local post cards, wine to Lebanese food pairing suggestions, souvenirs, etc...) and really good study place. Highly recommend.
