FAB-U-LOUS

Visited Jafra on a day trip to Albi. We found this little gem of a restaurant just down the hill from the cathedral in a quiet street. Four of us ate on the terrace at the front & were given an excellent Lebanese meal. One of us is a veggie but we all had the Mezze starters followed by a... read more

I booked a table for 11 of us for lunch and we had a very relaxed and long lunch. We had 3 vegetarians amongst us but we were all well looked after by the owner Jamal, who speaks excellent English. The food was great (not London 5 star) and plentiful - in fact too much as we are not big... More

We had an amazing meal, we started with a mezze which was fantastic. We lived in the Middle-East for a long time and the food was authentic and tasty, added to that we had a marvellous bottle of Lebanese red wine. Various meats followed and then a cheese with a sugar syrup which doesn't sound great but tasted divine. The... More

Our family is good friends with the owner and we dined here a few times. The food, wine, especially people make this restaurant an incredible place to visit

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 were tiring of eating duck and more duck and we run into this Lebanese-Syrian-Palestinian gem of a restaurant. Delicious food tasting freshly made came out quickly (wife and I got a 5 mezze combo each) with lamb and chicken kabobs. Plenty of bread for dipping; let the (very friendly) owner suggest a few to try as well. When in... More

This area of France prides itself on a meat-based diet, featuring duck and foie gras. It is hard to find vegetarian courses let alone vegetarian restaurants. 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
