The restaurant was below my expectations by 10 times, as it is located in one of the famous hotel in world, old frozen starters, very bad services, boring atmosphere and very expensive food menu which you can get same meals with much better tast in any lebaneis restaurant with ten times less prices

not recommended for anyone (bad service, no food, etc). no garden view, it is terrible. it needs more rennovation and work on to get it better for the near future.
