At first I was not sure what kind of place this was going to be. I had heard it was Lebanese and I have had a little exposure to Lebanese food before. I would best describe this as middle eastern fusion food - fused with European, even some Asian or Arabic touches. The starters, I think they say mazza on... More

We chose this place because of the excellent reviews. I'm not a massive fan of Lebanese food but if I choose the right dish myself, I usually enjoy it. Four of us arrived and were greeted warmly and had drinks. The place is pretty basic with simple tables but very accommodating staff. It was full on a Wednesday night. Unfortunately,... More

As a person who lived 20 years in the middle east i am able to judge a good from a not good lebanese food, i went today with my wife to enjoy a good lunch after all the fantastic ratings here on tripadvisor, but was really disappointed, the food had nothing to do with lebanese, or even middle eastern...We ordered...

i went to this restaurant because of what i read in the reviews and was not disappointed. The only thing I would change is to make a reservation, but that was on me. Despite that, they were accommodating. The service was great, the drink options were also diverse, and the mezza I ordered was also fresh and gracefully presented, arriving... More

They fully deserve the effort of writing a short online review. Great food, really appreciable sizes of servings, friendly and really professional staff, great value for the money (they do charge regular restaurant prices; not low-budget, but nothing out of the ordinary). Desert is included as an amenity, free of charge. The cinnamon ice-cream was memorable. The Falafel (part of... More

This is definitly one of the best restaurant i've been to. The food is absolutly delicious, service is great and so is the ambiance. My boyfriend and I just fell in love with that restaurant and their food. What is even more fabulous is that it's not too expensive. If you have just one restaurant to visit in Hamburg, go... More

What can be said about Lebanese cuisine, it's in the top 5 best with Italian! This little restaurant sports the fragrance of a proper Lebanese kitchen from the second you step in. The servers are ubber friendly. The initial salad spread, from the starters is excellent with a fine 8 dish assortment of the flavors of the middle east. The... More

L'Orient is a must every time I go back to Hamburg. The food is always great and the service as well. We always have Mezze to start with, which are small plates of different starters, they are amazing!!!! There are always specials for main dishes, as well as great dishes on the permanent menu. The desert is a great end... More

This popular Lebanese restaurant is located a short walk from a metro station, about 10 minutes from the centre of Hamburg. The interior, as the pictures on the website show is fresh and modern. The service is excellent and very polite. We started with a table-full of mezze, including baba ganoush, house made lamb sausage, olives and many others. It... More
