Nothing tasty about the food both my husband & I found our meal bland and tasteless. I ordered the chickpea falafel, it was dry and bland I had to ask for some sauce with it to try make it more edible. The Lebanese bread was cold and doughy and served in a dirty weaved basket, a real turn off. My... More

My father and I went to Ireland for a holiday and we stayed at Athlone. It was a surprise to see a Lebanese restaurant in the middle of the town but refreshing too. Walking in, we were welcomed and seated with no booking required. Our server for the evening was polite and didn't mind having a bit of a joke.... More

Go for the vegetarian platter. Stunning! Went with a group of six friends. 4 of us went for the veg platter and we'd all been there before and all adored it. I think it's famous in athlone. My other two friends got fish and as we do, we all had a taste....delish!! I have to say I was disappointed to... More

Not particularly impressive from the outside but a splendid place inside & wonderful food at very reasonable prices. Good vegetarian choice - I had a delicious aubergine & chickpea casserole in a fresh mint & tomato sauce (Є12.80) - but plenty of choice for others too.

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
