  • We just visited and tasted... and bought then. The visit is done fairly quickly with relatively brief explanations. We learn Ixsir vinifies in Batroun grapes from different parts of the Lebanon, but not possible to know the geographical origin of the varieties advertised in the bottles. It seems that Ixsir does not press its red... What first seems implausible but surface and production figures are used to calculate a yield of about 30hl per hectare, really low! Then, press or not press? Honest numbers or not?

  • I come to Ixsir whenever I come to Lebanon, it really is a great spot for lunch with friends or family. The food is great and the wine wonderful! Definitely worth the drive.  more »
  • I was there with 3 other friends. And they said the group was too small and we had to have booked a week ahead.  more »

  • We visited the winery with a group of 15 people. we booked for lunch at their restaurant with a formula of 45$ excluding drinks. The food was basically mini portions of lentils and grains in every possible way you can imagine! from salads to soups...cheap ingredients and tasteless dishes. very poor dishes for such a price!!! we were very disappointed. The winery tour: here comes the BIG hit! While we were walking with the lady guide tour, she asked rudely to keep quiet because of some "VIP" guests doing some wine tasting. we just paid 800$ at your restaurant, and you ask 15 educated well behaved descent people to SHUT UP just because of some VIPs?? just reschedule your tour Lady! this is not a way to treat their guests. we regret putting our money at your winery!
  • The building is beautifully renovated and the underground extension is very nice. I would recommend booking for the tour of the winery as you will learn some interesting facts about the wine and the building. The food at the restaurant is really good, the chef Nicolas Audi suggests a wide selection of Lebanese dishes. Much recommended for all tourists visiting Lebanon!
  • Beautiful renovated building, entrance and landscape. The space is very picturesque. The restaurant has an amazing outdoor area but not an unpleasant indoor space. The service was bad and the staff were not very friendly.
  • Over priced, rude staff, you need to order something in the restaurant you will have to wait and ask for it many time. You get charged for soft drinks and water (that we didn't even order) while you are taking a formule of 45$ per person for which you get a very poor amount of food presented in ashtrey like plates that are too small. The area is nice, the wine tour is short and not much informative, all you get to know is that you need to shut up because there are some VIP personnel that are tasting wine, they are VIP and we are not? I guess an 800$ restaurant bill can make us much more respectful. This is not acceptable. As a summary, if you were to go have a get away either simply go there with a check book in your pocket or a belly full of food. This was a huge waste of our time.
  • This place is a little piece of heaven but the food is average and pricey compared to what is offered. The winery tour is exceptional! Don't miss the wine tasting.
