To go here and order a small amount of dinner and then get smacked with a bill for 3 for $180 is beyond a joke. $22 for pickles. $54 for 6 bits of kefta This is the first time I've gone to any restaurant and been absolute gobsmacked and had to check the bill 4-5 times to see if it... More

I did not particularly enjoy my evening at el phoenician. I ordered a mixed plate to share and found that the quality was lacking in comparison to places where the price was significantly cheaper.

This lovely restaurant has been one of our favourites for years and the quality of the food, the service, and ambiance are just wonderful. You're treated like family whether you come once or twice a year or every month. Lots of lovely vegetarian options....falafel, yummy lemony potatoes, the dips and salads and the best LLB's hands down!

So you know they are good. The customer service here is second to none. The staff are helpful and will bend over backwards to make your dining experience positive. One plant based eater in a banquet? Not a drama, they just bring me a separate plate of the vegan foods. The food is as good as you will get.

I went with a work colleague to this establishment. The atmosphere is very pleasant, the service was good. There was nothing 'bad' about this restaurant. We ordered a glass of wine each, pricey for the type of wine, and some dishes to share. The kibbi's entrée had only 2 on the plate, the chick pea croquettes were overdone and dry... More

We have eaten at El Phoenician so many times and we have never been let down. The service is always wonderful, the food and wine are top notch and the banquet always provides more than enough food. In an area where there is little to no free parking it's great to know that they will validate your ticket for the... More
