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

This one gets close - as it is based on Lebanese cuisine that has a high vegetable content - I'd guess about 80% of the menu is vegetarian. A bonus is that Lebanese wine... More

I have traveled in Mediterranean countries for a long time and I love Lebanese cuisine, so when I've seen this restaurant I didn't hesitate and I wanted to try it. It's still the best Lebanese restaurant I've tried so far. Staff is friendly and the owner us great advice about the choice of our dinner. We took the "menu" and... 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!
