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

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.

I was there a few days ago and it was absolutely delicious. I was taken by family who goes there a lot, if it wasn't for that I would have probably never stumbled upon this hidden gem. The chicken hearts are magnificent as was all of the food. I would recommend this highly if you like Lebanese food.

This restaurant does not scream to be noticed, it's on a quiet street and discreet both inside and out but it has been quietly and successfully doing business for many decades . We had a very pleasant, not to mention excessive meal here. The tasting menu is large and although suggested for 2 or 3, would easily be enough for... More
