It's a very nice looking restaurant, with internet connection, nice story in the menu.. Still the food isn't wow, the service tries it's best to be fast, i think it needs lots of improvements and all...

Great service, super tasty food. always a nice experience especially outdoors in the garden. On the overpriced side, but always worth coming back for a nice experience.

It is the best place to go for an after party get together. It is not a cheap place, but then again, the location is very convenient. The food is decent, but sometimes the prices are byond market averages.

I visit this restaurant every time I fly in to town. The only gateway left to Beirut in the 60s. The food is good and the ambiance is cosy and nostalgic. You don't even hear the bustling sounds of the city while sitting in the vicinity. Unfortunately some of the waiters this time were a little indifferent to the service and to our table at least. It wasn't bad. It wasn't however the warm service I usually receive from the staff. It felt like the staff didn't need to make an extra effort to make the extra buck by being warm and nice to customers because the restaurant is fully occupied either way. Nonetheless, the food, the music and the vibes were good as always.

A terrible place to go to!! I dont know why a lot of people still go there. They have the worst staff, service, small portions, and high prices compared to what they serve. Went there a couple of days ago and wont go ever again

I don't recommend it and I wish if I can just give half a star. Very poor place and shifty service where I've never seen it go that bad before.

Its a nice place espacially after clubbing as they have good security in case of crazy drunks. Food is good ( love their keshk and saj). The setting and chairs outside are beyond amazing, the chairs in the middle are not comfortable, the sofas inside are nice. The setting is a lebanese traditional house, nice music. Shisha is ok , prices ate high but its high everywhere in lebanon. Not a place to take ur kids or if u dont like alcohol. Waiters are ok not rude but they deal with rude people so they have to b a bit patient. Lots of celebrities( i spotted few) ladies who go there at night are barely wearing anything ( dont know why) even in winter i felt like being on a beach not a restaurant. One night i was there, there was a table full of guys singing for bashar al asad and hizbullah and they were trouble material. Security left them which wasnt right! Lots of rude rich men go there with there women to show off so u have to mind ur own business to enjoy. I like the atmosphere

Falamanki is a typical lebanese cafe , playing cards, shisha , and crowded most of the time . the service is average , shisha is good and mankoushy jebny bell foren is awesome , but the prices are high and the cold beverage are presented in plastic cups which is bad for costumer and for the environment .

It's either we didn't get the concept, or they failed to deliver it to us, you dont know if you're walking into a restaurant or a magasin or to saba2 el kheil, also the food & service are very ordinary, nothing special about it, you can visit it only if all the others were reserved.

Service was okay & fast, food is good but just way overpriced. 10,000LL for orange juice that isn't even fresh, really? & the waiters running around with the charcoal need to be careful & slow down, I almost got burnt a few times.

Food and service is below the level of okay. Not really recommending this place. Besides, this place is filled with arguilettes creating such white smoke clouds across the rooms. Yugggg. What about the law that banned smoking in restaurants, while this restaurant is permissible? How come?

Very very very high prices for such an atmosphere. A can of cola for 6500ll and in a 5 stars hotel it costs 6000ll. Baring in mind that this place barely reaches 3 stars level. Do not leave ur cars for the valet parking they are very aggressive with the cars.
