Lebanese food with a twist

Lovely atmosphere, unique menu for lebanese mezza with a twist. creative presentation. The carmalised walnuts used as garnish for most dishes are the best I ever tasted.

An outstanding menu of lebanese cuisine that comes alive with a unique twist as every dish is made to delight your tastebuds. The price range is a bit high but it's every bit worth it as this is not your average lebanese restaurant and makes for a great experience.

if you are in Jbail, this is the place to have an out of this world lunch (what I did). The food presentation is really way better than anything else in Lebanon, you must try the vegetable mukarmashat. didnt try the mains as the portions are huge on the apetizers.

Perfect for.romantic dates for being a quiet place in the middle of byblos! The menu is huge with hundreds of options, tried almost everything in the sea food section and wasn't disappointed at all, the personal favorite was the breaded potato shrimps and the mussels.

Although the restaurant looks normal and has nothing special, but the atmosphere is nice. The food is great with so many specialties you would be confused what to choose... Very nice experience.

We had our last meal of our trip here for a late lunch/early dinner and were amazed at the food, settings and ambiance.
