Cavalli Caffe, dinner with the stars

Cavalli Caffé has been open in Beirut since 2 years and I finally got the chance to try it and have a say about it. The place is located in Down Town facing Zaitouna Bay near the Beirut Souks. The decoration of the place is beautiful and the sofas are too comfortable that you might just fall asleep. The menu is rich with different types of food, from salads to appetizers, pastas, pizzas, and of course main plates. 

We started our experience with the famous quinoa salad, then as a hot appetizer we ordered traditional eggplant parmigiana, and the main plates consisted of grilled salmon and entrecote steak. 

The quinoa salad was very delicious! The ingredients were well mixed together.
The eggplant parmigiana was also very tasty! Served hot and creamy, I really loved it.
As for the main plates we didn't like both of them. The entrecote was so chewy and greasy but the risotto served with it was very yummy.
The salmon lacked taste. I would have preferred if it was seasoned with some spices before grilling.
For dessert we tried their macarons, they were delicious. Each one has a unique taste and is filled with either ice cream or jam or cream.
Before visiting Cavalli Café I thought it was one of those so expensive places but it was not as most items range is between 22,000 and 30,000 L.L. I should say that it is not the perfect place to have lunch or dinner but instead it's great to grab a bite and gather with friends for a coffee, or a cocktail. One more thing Roberto please focus more on desining dresses and let the chefs take over the food.
