  • To be clear from the beginning, this review is not about the wine that they make, but rather about the winery visit. We drove out from Beirut, and followed gps instructions to 'Ixsir'. But gps got us ...  more »

  • Very bad outside sitting area, unorganized, no outside fans ( if u are only 4 persons the table will be at the end of the restaurant square in the sun, Very normal food nothing special. It's all about the photographer who know how to take attractive pics.
  • The architecture is worth the tour alone. Also, the wine is quite good and reasonably priced.
  • The winery, its location, the wines are great. The tour is short and the guide's knowledge is limited. It's nice to see a modern winery but don't expect too much. The big disappointment is actually the restaurant. Firstly, why is the menu only in French? They serve Lebanese cuisine and dishes which have common Arabic names and yet everything is in French. That in combination with the prices, you get high expectations. You'd think you're in a fancy place, yet nothing about the place says fancy. The decor is boring and cold (literally cold with the marble tables). The service is not up to par (when ordering one fattouch, the waiter didn't bother to say that it's not enough for 4 people). The portions are ridiculously small (the aubergine and coriander is a joke at 9000LL) and the quality is average at best. The wines on the menu are more expensive than the shop. Why? It's their own wines! Visit the winery, do the tour if you want, drink the wines but skip the restaurant all together.
  • Great Quality Time
  • Very bad reception, they didn't let us enter because we didnt book, they didn't took in consideration that we came all the way from beirut , this is very unprofessional , and I advice no one to come here.
