The sweets are not that good. The place is not welcoming a lot of negative vibes. I feel desperate when I go there. I stopped going there after 3 times

A nice and small eatery in a quiet neighborhood. The food was good and affordable, but would be better if the portions were a bit more generous. The greatest setback was the potato chips offered with some dishes instead of real fried potatoes. The place is mainly suitable for breakfast or a quick lunch.

You go out to eat better than home, but it is not the case here. The food was so bad I could not continue my meal.

Tucked away on a main street in Achrafieh, this while very much in the city will make you feel like a world away. The food is to die for, you can go for a destination (large portion) or discover (small portion) , to reap benefits of the food go discover all the little places you would never thought you would...

Its a very nice and relaxing place that was realy enjoyable . Food was great and the waiters greeted us in a very warm way . The only problem is that we sat outside and the waiters kind of stayed indoors... We had a hard time to get their attention... But nothing serious... A nice place to hang out

Dear Gou team, I also had the same "joe" experience. I reviewed your below response to Joe and it's good to see that customers' comments are taken into consideration. However, i have always wondered how come restaurants in Lebanon never offer a discount or a free meal to dissatisfied customers, especially when the flaw is clearly the restaurant's. This is... More

If you like waiting for 10 minutes alone in a small restaurant without any waiter greeting you, this is the right place.
