Liza

Liza Cafe is a fine Lebanese restaurant with exquisite Lebanese history and culture. 

It all started in Paris...Named after one of its owners, Liza Asseily, the restaurant has now stretched out and has recently opened in Lebanon. Known as a contemporary Lebanese restaurant, it is set in a beautifully renovated old 19th century Lebanese villa. This magical space was a family house, full of history and life, and the owners kept its preservation. Visually stimulating while remaining soothing due to the harmonious combination of colors, prints and materials, the restaurant is a celebration of Lebanese history and culture. Without a doubt, restaurants today are placing a heavier emphasis on design and atmosphere.

At Liza’s, modern meets traditional. It consists of several rooms, patterns covering the walls, creating an illustrated story. This beautiful place explicitly shows the true nature of Beirut and its history, especially since the old Lira currency, is the prominent wall covering which will bring smiles to faces of people from the older generation. The Money Room is a dimly lit space with simple wooden blinds, creating a sweet and nostalgic atmosphere.

The Banana Room is a beautiful room designed with large green banana tree leaves, for the large buffets brunches held on Saturday and Sunday. The Lebanese cuisine, which is known for its dynamic scene, is fresh, light, and generous. The mezze starters include lamb tartar and smoky aubergine puree topped with tangy promenade seeds.  Recommended is the Kharouf bi Khams Bharat platter or the Moghrabiye Bel Sfarajal.

Leave space for the irresistibly sticky baklava, accompanied with rosehip and pistachio ice cream. Designs that have been taken to new heights, romance interiors of Paris, and great Lebanese dishes create a distinct atmosphere one will surely love.
