“Tasty Mediterranean food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This simple but elegant restaurant near the edge of Lac Leman has excellent Middle Eastern food and an interesting selection of wines including several vintages of Chateau Musar and other wines from Lebanon. It is worth a visit although it is moderately expensive.

“WOW, what a great suprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I like Mediteranian and Lebanese food. but I tried this place as recommended.
Let me tell you, it might cost a bit more than you would expect, but WOW every bite was wonderful.
Full of flavour and the meat was so amazingly tender. I just kept ordering more until i was packed full.

Just try this place out, and get the mixed hommos, mixed grilled meats, Taboule or eggplant salad, and the sampler starters.

Its a wonderful gastronomy experience.

“Chic place - great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Have dined here for business lunch as well as romantic dinner - and it works great for either occasion.

The food:
Very very good, refined cuisine, very well presented, good selection, mixes well with Lebanese and international wine list,

The atmosphere:
Stylish, sophisticated yet not arrogant; seating arrangement allows for romantic candle light dinner as well as smaller groups having a good time.

The service:
Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, can get busy at peak hours

The location:
View on the park and the lake - hard to beat!

Will be returning soon!

“Nice atmosphere, good quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

A chic Lebanese restaurant opposite the Jardin Anglais,Geneva. Generous portion for the tasting menu and good quality, although a little pricey. The desserts we had were not too sweet and different from the usual middle eastern sweets. Service is prompt and staff friendly and helpful.

“Appalling approach of customer service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Food is good, nothing to say about that. Kind of overpriced (such as USD 16 for some usual cream cheese), but good and refined nonetheless. The premises have nothing really special about them...absolutely OK, but nothing like posh or really avantgarde design, in contrast with what they surely believe about themselved.

The main problem is the service. One may be smiling at the customer, but *explicitely denying* "as per our policy" -as the waiter stated plainly stated, showing some sort of embarrassment- a glass of water after one has ordered a $115 bottle of wine (yes: hundred and fifteen swiss francs, the same in US dollars) is plainly *unacceptable*. Reluctance to serve a glass of water is pretty widespread among local (Geneva) restaurant-owners, but by no means when one has ordered a $100+ bottle of wine. That is just unheard of.

For this reason: avoid at all costs if you do not want you romantic and among-friends evening to be screwed by such an experience. There are many, many other places in Geneva with way less insane approaches of customer well-being.

In addition: the guys did not wait for us to finish to begin thoroughly cleaning the place, blowing off candles, etc...At 11PM on a *Saturday evening*, the is pretty rude, to say the least.
