It has the most amazing view on Umayad Mosque. I highly recommend it at night.
This restaurant offers a beautiful and fresh terrace overlooking directly the southern wing of the Omayyad's Mosque. The place is lovely at sunset, when you can enjoy fresh air and a wonderful view over the Mosque the old city and also part of the new city. The restaurant has a wide chioice of good mezzas and grilled meat (kebab). Don't... More
It's true that Leila's is a bit of a tourist trap and that the beer is overpriced. The terrace itself really is nice though, so for drinks (only get beer if you're prepared to pay 250SYP) and maybe just appetizers it's really not that bad. Service is somewhat mediocre. I gotta say that the Chicken nuggets were pretty good! The... More
This restaurant lives on being included in the Lonely Planet guidebook. It is very nice to sit on the terrace and the view is great, but that is about it. The food is not bad, the grilled chicken was tasty and the salad as well, but we were 3 who ate together and we all got severe food poisoning from... More
We had a similar experience to the other reviews here - we went to Leila's as it was recommended in Lonely Planet and found the food fine but nothing special, the service supercilious, and the bill unexpectedly high. It's a bit of a tourist trap as it's located so close to the Ummayad Mosque, and I think they really are... More
Good service, very good food, nice view of the mosque. Listed prices are decent. However they offered us beer and we forgot to ask the price (which usually works out quite ok in Syria except for taxi's). How stupid of us. They charged 250SP per beer making our meal cheaper then the beer itself. Obviously they know most tourists will... More
We also went to Laila's because of the Lonly Planet and they told us the empy tables were ‘reserved’, although no one appear during our visit. I ordered fresh Orange Juice and they brought orange juice from the pack. Then I made a complaint about it and they brought a new one but it was not a fresh one either.... More
We’d read in Lonely Planet that the Leila’s restaurant had a roof terrace and was great for watching the sunset.If Damascus has a flaw its a lack of bars/restaurants where its possible to sit outside for a meal/drink. We therefore headed to Leilas. There were a couple of tables free at the edge of the terrace which gave a view... More
Despite the gushing description from Lonely Planet,we found this restaurant most disappointing with appalling service,grim food and high prices.There are so many more to choose from.
When we entered the restaurant, it was filled with tour groups of people, and was very busy. We were given a table and basically ignored for about 10 minutes. We had to ask for the menu, and as it was 4pm, we just wanted something light to eat, and not a full meal. We ordered some hommus, soup, tea and... More
