Goiod and high variety of food. You are forced to consume and to buy a beberage instaead of tap water. Good portions, nothing fancy. Arabic origin service expect the men to order gthe food and would not ask women on the party.

If you like Lebanese cuisine, this place matches the savors of fresh local Nicoise produce with Middle Eastern style. Excellent foule, tabouli, and falafel. Service is typically French: Slow. The location in the Notre Dame is wonderful any time of day.

We ended up in this place by chance and it was a jackpot! We were received by two friendly and well mannered young gentlemen. The food was great! I am a vegetarian and I ordered several items from the starters. Make sure you try the "muhammara", the slightly spicy starter with roasted pepper and walnuts. And don't forget the dessert!... More

First ever Lebanese meal - we chose 12 dishes between 6 of us with some assistance from our very helpful waiter. The food was delicious and the service friendly.
