Stove Restaurant & Terrace, located in Ashrafieh, serves delicious French cuisine. Stove concentrates on its menu and offers a refreshing no-nonsense approach to dining in Lebanon. Elegant, sophisticated French food is the order of the day, with dishes like pan-fried forest mushrooms, caramelised pork fillet and salmon in a cream sauce. The interior is tastefully decked out in plain cream and mahogany hues, though there's a lingering grandeur in the columns and vaulted doorways of the building, formerly a residential villa. The garden dining area is one of the city's loveliest.
