Not a place I'd rush to

If you fancy seafood, this isn't the place to go. I ordered the mixed seafood platter. When it arrived, it looked like they pulled a leftover plate off someone else's table. The amount of food was small and the flavor just wasn't there. The lentil soup was quite good though, and tasted homemade.

Stopped in with some friends and sat upstairs. The view is great and the dinning atmosphere was authentic. I tried the calamari to start and the lamb for my meal. Both were very good.

We took a table upstairs, wonderful on the terrace and You get out of the crowding souq. We enjoyed our lamb, shawarma and tabbouleh with some drinks. Many waiters but nevertheless it takes some time but we had vacation so we don't care.
