Just perfect

Without a doubt one of the finest restaurants I have ever eaten in. The dishes although alien to many are explained perfectly on a very assorted menu. The staff are exceptional and their house wine (red) is beautiful.. Please try this hidden gem

I'm not a meat fan so I had the vegetarian plate. It was delicious. The tabouli was the freshest and zingiest I've ever tasted. Great service. Lovely surroundings. Like the music, felt transported to another part of the world but without the airports and hassle. Great place for a night out.

Authentic food and flavours make for a lovely and interesting experience. The food is beautifully presented. Generous portions meant we were too full for pudding. The host was extremely friendly and helpful with our menu choices too. The un-oaked Chardonnay was a delight.

We are new-ish to Lebanese cuisine and so asked for assistance in choosing our meal. Our very helpful server read us just right and we had a wonderful meal. Delicious, fresh, expertly seasoned. Quaint surroundings and easy access made this a great choice for us after a busy day.

Hi folks, thanks for the kind words and you're constructive criticism, these are the things that I'm always keen to hear about. I have spoken with the chef and owner, Milad, and there was definitely one night there was a problem with the shawarma, a mistake was made in calculating how many people had ordered the dish and we are...

The very best food, flavours amazing, all made fresh so waiter advised regarding spice levels and changed individual orders according to taste. Intimate surroundings. Excellent value. Booked to return again before our holiday ends

We had our first visit here a few weeks ago and we will be back for sure. Food was amazing, atmosphere was great and the staff were very helpful. We had one of the sharing dishes and every bite was a fresh mouthful of sunshine :-)
