Cantina Sociale is in the heart of Ashrafieh, Beirut, only a few meters away from Sassine square. It’s a self-service restaurant that’s all about creating your own salad from their menu.
What’s not to miss is the various selection of good wine; either by glass or even buying the whole bottle and taking it home (it’s not something you will encounter in other restaurants in Beirut).
I enjoy the chill, cozy atmosphere, especially in winter time, as well as morning meetings for work or anything else! I just love it there!
This place is also perfect for work or casual meetings with an iced americano on the patio/terrace.
Bare in mind that they don’t take reservations, but don’t let that stop you, it’s really a must-try!
The prices are super reasonable, and the staff is friendly. Even when it’s crowded late in the evening, you will always be welcomed with a smile on their face.
