White Coast: Classy Mediterranean Seafood Restaurant

Joining the list of delicious fish restaurants in Lebanon is the new White Coast Mediterranean Fish restaurant, overlooking the coast of Jal El Dib. Not only is it the first in its area, but it has differentiated itself from all other restaurants in its genre with its special platters, classy yet comfortably fresh décor, and professional staff.

The indoor area, seating 90 people, boasts a spacious and freshly colored setting, with blue cushions and the effect of white clouds reflecting the sea and the sky. During summer, an outdoor terrace welcomes an extra 110 seated customers to a breathtaking view of the ocean.

The food is nothing less than spectacular, with a wide variety of cold and hot platters that will surely surprise and please even the pickiest customers. The staff is very friendly and punctual, and will describe White Coast’s specialties with such passion that you cannot resist trying them. Starting with the Cold Mezzé, the Octopus Carpaccio is not a platter to miss; not only is it scrumptiously fresh, but it is marinated perfectly! I must admit, it is one of the most delicious seafood platters I’ve tasted in Lebanon and abroad. The Fresh Crab Salad is also very refreshing and tasty. Following with the Hot Mezzé, I suggest you try the Sizzling Sea Bass which has a great flavor but is a bit dry. After that, the Shrimps menu has a list of deliciously prepared platters, from which you must try the Avocado Shrimps and its delicious combination of ingredients, and the Mediterranean Shrimps which you will find strange but delicious – if you are a fan of spicy food, you will love this. Your table will not be complete without the Off-The-Menu items which I absolutely loved. The Squid in Ink is wonderfully prepared with a twist of lemon, and the Calamari in Wine is truly a celebration for the taste buds – one of the best seafood platters I’ve ever tasted, and will be the reason for my return visit. For the fish, no matter what grilled fish you decide to choose make sure it is prepared with the Egyptian Chili Sauce which is absolutely fantastic; for a little extra something, add a dab of Honey Ginger Sauce to it. Bursting with flavor, it is the perfect choice to complete your meal. Desserts and a fruit salad are complimentary but nevertheless mouthwateringly delicious! I especially loved the caramel dessert; I cannot really give it a name since it is a specialty, but I crave it every time I think of it. Shisha lovers can enjoy ordering one during their meal. After all this food, you will not feel any discomfort since the food is light and the portions are great.

Whether you’re on a date, with family, or with friends, you’ll love the White Coast restaurant. The best part is that you can dress up or dress down casually for your lunch or dinner. Feel comfortable, grab a group of friends and enjoy trying their very special platters all for 50 – 70 USD per person (including wine).
