Nice pool

We eat here once or twice a year and let the kids swim. A big, clean pool with a diving board. I've always enjoyed the food as well.

The restaurant was recommended to us by the taxi driver when we discovered that the place nextdoor was closed. Starter: Mussels. Many were broken and there was not much sauce. Main: The main was decent but nothing too specia. The dessert, a fondant au chocolat was amazing. For the quality, the restaurant was pricy.

The atmosphere is great but the quality of the food is only average. personally I didn't receive good service. I payed for an overpriced water bottle, only for the server to try and take it away after my dinner.

We enjoyed the food so much we came back a second time. The menu has a variety of Middle Eastern food, pizza, and seafood. The kids really enjoyed the pizza, while the parents liked the mezza and the seafood. The servers are always around without being pushy. The owner makes a point to great every guest. The servers have enough... More

We selected this restaurant because of the location and view, and were pleasantly surprised by the food and service. The location near the American Embassy seems to make this a restaurant catering to employees and visitors there...which was fine with us. As we ate there shortly before Christmas, I can say that we appreciated the Christmas décor and being able... More
