L'Escroc is a restaurant located in Ashrafieh and well known among the youth … It is an easy going restaurant, good food at good prices. The opening of its second branch in Antelias was held a few months ago. I was invited there once and I think my experience was interesting enough to write about.
The moment we had our seats, the music and lights went off. This is more than normal in a country like lebanon, but when the power failure occurs three times in less than an hour and each time lasts at least 15 minutes I start asking myself don't they have their back up electrical current? We ordered a Diet coke: That's something you can get wrong! The waiter told us we had to order something else because they didn't have diet coke… so i satisfied myself with a cup of water. Ten minutes later another waiter comes and asks again, what would you like to drink? I said I wanted a diet coke but I've been told there was none, he was surprised, denied, then came back with a can of diet coke. Weird!
The food was cold and tasteless.
And the worst is offering Arguileh inside this cube with no proper ventilation although they had an outdoor terrace where one can smoke without disturbing others.
In my opinion, L'Escroc Antelias is one of the worst restaurants on the strip. You can read on their website: (I wish it's true).
