A dining concept by El-Phoenician
Jounieh by El-Phoenician is a contemporary approach to the Middle Eastern culinary tradition.
Perfectly positioned on the Walsh Bay harbour foreshore, this waterside venue takes you on a journey through the distinctive flavours and tastes of its famed namesake – the coastal town of Jounieh in Lebanon.
From the pickles and spices of the bustling ‘Souk’, the grandeur of its luxurious oceanfront resorts, bustling nightlife and numerous promenade eateries, Jounieh by El-Phoenician is an all-encompassing slice of Lebanese culture.
So grab another round of dips and pile up the pita; time moves slowly when you’re eating this well.
Jounieh’s fresh and flavourful menu emphasises the use of fresh Australian produce, the application of French technique, and the traditional flavour bases of the Middle East. Jounieh complements its robust culinary flavours with drops from the world’s most acclaimed vineyards. It’s a list that journeys from Australia, France, Spain, and Lebanon, and embraces the bold and the beautiful, the soft and fragrant, the luxurious and spicy. There’s the addition of Middle Eastern-inspired cocktails, traditional arak, smoky whiskeys, and fiery spirits – all thrown in for good measure.
Jounieh’s aesthetic pays homage to the area’s rich blue collar history and its nautical surround-ings. Drawing on natural elements – wood, stone, and a colour palate inspired by the sea- this 100 seater creates the perfect setting for a premium culinary experience, or a larger group function.
