A piece of Lebanon in Mexico

This is a great restaurant. My family and I go al least once every five weeks. I have several Lebanese friends and they all agree is one of the best since food really tastes as it does in Lebanon and Siria. A girl passes like every 10 minutes giving you freshly made pita bread, they have nice... read more

We visited Gruta Ehden on a quiet Saturday afternoon. It is obvious that their busy hours are later in the day. The food was delicious, the service very attentive, and the atmosphere very pleasant. I highly recommend the Calamari Gruta Ehden, which is served in an amazing lemon sesame sauce. We'll definitely be back again.

This gem was located 2 blocks from my apartment and it's one of the best lebanese restaurant I have been to. Service is excellent (domicilio = delivery is a must) and please ask for the second menu (menu for sharing plates).

For true Lebanese food, try la Gruta, shared appetizers can make most of your meal. Ambiance is very familiar on the weekends and it's walking distance from parks and hotels in the area.

Situated at the south of the city (very far if you are staying in Polanco). The food is made with original recipes, and excellent quality ingredients, their service is very good, and the price is relatively just. I love to go here when possible or I am in the zone..

A very old and traditional lebanese restaurant. Mezzas are ideal for 3 or 4 friends, with superb quality in food. Service is kind and knowledgeable. Weekends it gets really crowded, to have a quiet lunch is better from monday to thursday.

If you like Arab food, this is the place. Small and hidden within Polanco the place itself already saw its best days gone by, but the food is bar none. If you like traditional Arab dishes like Keppe, Olive leafs, Tabule,... you will be delighted. Price is extremely reasonable. The only downside is the wine list which is rather limited.

It was good and when I want a tasty, inexpensive meal I will go back. The service was good, the portions just right, and the ambience was that of a relaxed but still nice restaurant.
