Bay Rock Cafe

[color=#333333][font=tahoma][size=2]Bay Rock Cafe, located off the Corniche perched high up on the cliffs of Raouché's biggest asset is its location. This is the view in daytime:[/size][/font][/color]

Atmosphere: Well, as you can see from above, a good candidate for 5/5[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#333333][font=tahoma][size=2]Hookah: 5/5. Excellent. Big selection, ordered a sweet melon, and not only did it smoke really well, but I noticed on the argileh that there was a little tag saying melon in Arabic - this place clearly dedicates not just hoses to certain flavors, but whole pipes. A+ for effort![/size][/font][/color]

Service: 5/5, pretty much as good as it gets in Beirut -decent, competent, if not always gracious. This place is huge and they have a lot of waiters.[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#333333][font=tahoma][size=2]Food: N/A - again, didn't eat. They have a full menu of Lebanese food, and a full bar. Drank a "Mexican" beer with it, which is local beer with lime juice added and a salted rim....like a beer margarita. Only in Lebanon.... Along with the beer they give you nuts, carrots w/salt and lemon juice and these little nutty things called tirmus which are actually a kind of bean, sort of like edamame, but yellow. Fairly traditional beer snacks that should come free when you order a drink in Beirut. [/size][/font][/color]

[color=#333333][font=tahoma][size=2]Price: 4/5. On the high end for Beirut, but for Western standards pretty good. Mu'assal about $10 (15,000LL), Beer about $5 (8,000LL).[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#333333][font=tahoma][size=2]Overall: Really cool place to go at sunset or after dark. One of the more expensive places in Beirut to smoke, though not more than the places downtown or at Falamanki. And the view really is amazing....Plus, unlike Rawda, which is also right on the sea, you can have a beer or a cocktail here, which is VERY nice[/size][/font][/color]
