Description: A restaurant has opened at 14 rue de la Banque in Paris and carries the name of its originator: LIZA. Liza Soughayar is very much like the place she has created; from a different Lebanon, one that is oriental and modern, simple and sophisticated... Contemporary. To express this particular image of Lebanon, she worked with her husband Ziad Asseily for his creativity and love of food. A simple menu and fresh products... Her cuisine renounces nothing; however, she reinvents the Lebanese table in a space conceived for her, in the new interpretation of old partitions. We also have a bakery sandwiches next door L de liza and we do catering upon request

“Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Visiting Paris for the weekend, I found this restaurant recommended by Time Out Paris and rightfully so.

Except for the fact that they accept bookings for Sunday brunch at 12:00 and do not open a minute before (beware on a cold winter day!) everything else was outstanding: the service friendly, helpful and speaks English to explain the food. The brunch buffet is divine! I am a fan of Lebanese mezze and travel to the Middle East quite often so that I have a reference of the "original" and Liza's food holds up to the comparison. Creamy hummus, fantastic Tabouleh and many more tasty dishes. Only the falafel were a little dense and dry.

Last but not least, the atmosphere is nice and the decor tasty, with an Arabian touch yet not overdone. I will be back on my next visit to Paris!

“Horrible food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Waited outside till 8 pm. They saw us waiting for 10 mins before 8 but still did not care to let us in. Atmosphere and decor is great. Service too was fast and easy but horrible food.
This is not true Lebanese food at all. Ordered hummus, babaghanoush, fatoush and lamb kebabs. None of it tasted true Lebanese.

“Liza is back among the very good libanese spots!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

After a period of time quite dissapointing regarding the food quality, liza is great again: its kibbe naye, its moutabal and its shrimps are delicious.
For entry go for the fish Daurade Royale, awesome, and its lamb on rice that has cooked for hours and just waited for you to melt in your mouth!
