This restaurant is on the "corniche" and has a very nice seaview. If you are non-smoker you may have to seat outside on the terrace as inside there are a lot of "pipe smokers".

The location is great because of the view. The food was very good and the service was also good. But if you are a non smoker, you're going to be bothered by all the shisha smoke.

If we are rating the view I would give more than 5 stars but we're not... I find that even 2 stars are way too much for this place due to the poor attitude of the staff. You have to show off or know a waiter to be well seated and taken care of. One waiter made the exception in... More

I would have to say the location of the restaurant is amazing. You can sit in front of the Rouche rocks and enjoy an awesome view. However, the service needs to improve. We went during eid (so maybe the service wasn't so good because of the crowdedness). The manager was very kind, but the waiters were frustrated and didn't seem... More

The mezze selection was good and pretty tasty. And it's a nice view for sunset. But don't stay for dinner. Out of 6 meals - one was good - it was a salad. And hands down the absolute worse pizza I have ever tasted. Do stop by - enjoy the view. But cannot recommend you eat a main course here.

Expensive, and cold service. Not great argile either. The location is right in front of the Raouche rocks so the view is good, but everything else leaves much to be desired. Find another place to enjoy spending your hard-earned money.

Very poor service, pricey, poor food - slack attitude of staff Paid $100 for a snack for 3 and it was like they were there for the big spenders and the rest of the punters were just 'pond life'. Would not go back there for the food, but perhaps the view and the shisha if I had plenty of time... More
