Update restaurant details
Ranked #19 of 445 restaurants in Beirut
Certificate of Excellence 2013
Cuisines: Lebanese
Dining options: Late Night
Description: A wonderful Lebanese restaurant in downtown Beirut. The food was wonderful, our favourites were the grilled halloumi cheese, cheese rolls, fatoush salad and moutabel (as well as dessert with white coffee - hot rose water). The wine was also good. The decor is quite simple and modern, not a great amount of atmosphere but it was all made up by the delicious food and wonderful service which constantly looked after us. You can also smoke shisa if you wish to. Greatly located in downtown Beirut, near the central mosque. Prices are about average for a restaurant dinner in the centre of town. It was recommended to us by Hotel Albergo, and I was very much satisfied with my evening and will definitely go back.

Everything is nice about this restaurant : the food , the location , the service and the taste. We noted that no much innovation in the menu even if the food is great but they should try to be creative..... We also noted that the price could be affordable when you choose the formula (when you are many people) but... More

Just average .. Food is fine yet many Lebanese restaurants could offer much more delicious Lebanese cuisine. Service is OK, Staff are so and so.. I didn't like the decoration.. The price was not expensive (based on Beirut's Down Town price range) yet you can get much better food quality and service for the same price...

Though the location is in the New Down Town (Solidere) area , you need to ask to find your way there. The food consisted mainly of traditional Lebanese Mezza and grills. Do not miss the traditional Lebanese Arak alcoholic drink, raw lamb meat in various forms, small fig birds, tabbouleh, Hommous, chicken liver, and lamb balls if available. Smoke Shisha... More
