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.

I guess since this place is in an almost dead area its trying to get the monthly income from each customer that visits , that is if you find anyone else other than you there ! Paid this place a visit a while ago and was a bad decision from the moment i stepped in ! From the service to... More

Very good hummus but the lamb cutlets and the fattoush was average. Nothing to brag about. Service was fast. Place was empty as people eat late here.
