Le Ciel offers up all the refinement and bombastic opulence that you'd expect from the in-house restaurant of the Hilton Beirut Habtoor Grand Hotel. Its situation on the 31st floor of the hotel affords spectacular panoramic views of the Beirut skyline, and the white tablecloths and chandeliers channel the sort of decadent colonial chic that's been mostly extinguished in the rest of the city. One for the nostalgics, then; but also for the gourmets in search of some first-rate French cuisine. Classic dishes and fine ingredients are the name of the game: a decent range of seafood, grills, salads and fromages is offered alongside a wine list à mourir. Sunday brunch is a treat, too – and under-12s get in for half price. Just make sure they're dressed in their Sunday best.
