Huge restaurant with a grandiose style

Zalka, Kaslik


Between 18$ and 25$

Review by Souad

Huge restaurant with a grandiose style in Zalka and Kaslik. The restaurant is always full of life. The cuisine tries to satisfy a large scope of tastes: you can find Lebanese, Italian, Japanese, American plates.

Republic Zalka’s rooftop offers a different concept with its cool design and its trendy atmosphere.

Just a tip: don’t forget to visit the ground floor toilets, you will be amazed!

    Well, whenever there's an outing, Republic is our first stop! The atmosphere is lovely and the service is amazing! The managers are so friendly ! It's a nice place to hang out and have good time with friends or family!

    When this place opened, it was really great, now with the Arghilé and the noise it is sometimes hard to stay long. I love the decor and the toilets! Check out the sweet pizza with chocolate and banana!!!

    I love this place. Whenever I want to go out, I sit in my car and it drives me there. The food, service, and of course argileh are exceptional. I tried the facing cafe (square) once and regreted it. You will feel like at home with their very good service.

    I went there with my family on Sunday and had the best experience ever in dinning, I think the owners are 24/7 on the floor insuring each guest is 100% satisfied BRAVO. One of the best.

    I've worked there for 9 months. Extraordinary service and team. Moreover, soon there will be the opening of the rooftop: Skybar in Zalka, check it out!

    Went there today, very nice place with a perfect decor and view where you can have fresh air wherever you sit .. Average food though, the pizza was very crusty and a little bit burned and the arguileh was too 5afife .. Good for an outing with a group of friends

    Worst valet parking ever, I recommend to not give them the car. They bumped mine because they park in an irresponsible manner.

    Visited Republic restaurant last week with my friends. The menu items were all over the place, my friends and I couldn’t establish an identity for this restaurant.
    The variety of the food was beyond comprehension! The quality of the food was terrible lacked creativity and flavors. Food took over 30 minutes and was cold!
    Servers were arrogant and inattentive to the needs of the guests.
    The restaurant is way overstaffed some servers just bumping into each others.
    My friend ordered a pizza and there were ants on the board!!! Disgusting!!! mixed grill was way overcooked and the artichoke dip was like a soup. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
    The manager was nice though, he kept apologizing.
    He offered to bring one of the owners to the table and the owners.
    The owner approached the table. He ate from our plates with his fingers… He kept apologizing like a broken record then he offered a complimentary dessert “One” and we were Five lol Terrible!
    I won't recommend this restaurant to anyone. Such a waste! Beautiful building, very poorly operated.

    The Sushi is as fresh as can be. Service with a smile. Hospitable staff followed by a more than friendly Raphael. A place where you can wind down after a hectic day at work or a night out with friends. Keep up the great service, great menu and especially the great staff. Well done Raphael...3 hat Restaurant...

    Worst service! Water took 30 min after asking for it 4 times! The manager explained about shortage of staff which is not an issue we should understand! No one came to clean the table! The waiter ignored us several times! It's a shame but I would never recommend such a place.

    We went there one time, ordered well done steak and it came raw with no sauce. When I asked for the sauce it came freezing. The AC was bad, it was so hot there. And to makes things worse the waiter was very rude and unprofessional. Bad place, I don't recommend anyone to go there.

    I went only one time, we got a worm in the salad and 2 sandwiches with raw meat. We did not even get an apology from the manager who was near, all I heard was the owner ranting about why people stay at the table after they paid. There are far better and more respectable places in Lebanon.
