If you've got older kids, this is a great place to take dad on Father's Day.

STOUFF BEIRUT OPEN FIRE KITCHEN

WTC MALL


Stouff Beirut has become the ultimate family dining destination for parents with kids of all ages - and a brilliant option for Father's Day. The Lebanese food is innovative and well-executed, with some incredibly good meat options as well as a load of lighter fare. But we also give them a gold star for realising that small children need something to do while their parents are eating: enter, the massive, supervised soft play area. Parents can rest assured their kids are safe and contained while they enjoy the rest of Father's Day lunch and a cheeky shisha.
