I do like having the opportunity to try different dishes from different lands, so the chance to experience Lebanese food was too good to miss. Situated just more or less opposite the cathedral down a little side street, we chose to sit outside in front of the restaurant as it was a warm evening. Wanting to eat fairly early meant... More

We often go to Jafra, the owner is friendly and welcoming, the 18 euros menu offers a selection of 6 different mezzes (starters) and a main dish (meat or vegetarian), the food is fresh and delicious and the Lebanese wine.... excellent!
