All home made, from humus to bread and falafel. The 1 kg of mixed grill meats was not comletely finished by four adults, despite the delicious tatstes. Lamb, kebabs, chicken. All... More

Great food, ambiance, service, decoration, location. Simply everything perfect. Let's talk about food; big variety of hot and cold starters, generous portions. As main course fish and decent variety of shrimps and lobsters (freshhhhhh).

Being vegetarian this place offered a wide variety of food. The views from the balcony were stunning, the supervisor was a little rude but the waiters and waitresses were very friendly and accomodating.

High quality cuisine expressed with each single bite of each dish. Must: BBQ and Mazzah dishes as much as you can eat. DO NOT FORGET: arabis sweets and especially Karabeej and Halawet Al Jeben.
