Amazing food, amazing price

Amazing food, really good service and a reasonable price. If you like Lebanese food, this is the best in Mexico

I know the place since it was opened twenty years ago. When I was young I used to eat there a lot . For many years I haven't visited the centro and this amazing Lebanese restaurant. Last week I visited the centro with some friends and I was curious if this place still exist. The place is hard to find.... More

Dont miss it. You wont see a big entrance, as the usual mexican restaurants. Just go inside the house, take the stairs and wait for your table. Dont miss the "taco arabe" and I would recommend to order the "menu", that way you can try a little bit of everything! They close at 6 pm, so be there early!

We ordered the tasting plate for 2. The portions are huge so 4 of us shared the plate for 2. As a dessert we took a selection of pastries chosen by the cook and the arabic coffee. We enjoyed our sunday lunch a lot! Very tasty and authentic.

Libanese food, good quality, excellent service. Ask for a table on the inner balconies, here you can see the gardens. But above all you can enjoy the quiet atmosphere, so peaceful (even in the middle of the Downtown). If you do not know the names of the dishes ask to the waiter, he will be happy to explain and give... More

Excellent food at a decent price. Considering the fact that I saw many content middle eastern people I trust the authenticity of this place. Try the Lebanese plate and the ram shawarma.

​ My best friends in Mexico City are Lebanese. They took me to this restaurant (the Colonia Nápoles location it is on Nueva York #91), and told me the food is prepared the same way as it is prepared in any house in Lebanon; “like eating at home”. Since my friends are regular at this place they placed the order:... More

Nicely hidden away, well staffed, good selection. It felt a bit empty, with bad music and the hum of a refrigerator, yet the main dishes were all MX$ 120-150.
