We are in Beirut onky for a short easter holiday. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice and simple, clear and comfortable. We liked the place immediately. No touristy frills with the compulsary rip off feeling (though the location in the beautiful but slightly soul lacking rebuilt downtown area might suggest) but straight forward attitude with typical lebanese flair. The service was friendly, but mainly professional and attentive. We had some cold starters of Hommos, stuffed wineleafe, extremly fresh and clean raw salads and vegy to accompany and some of the typical inflated breads that were all delicious. The best part was the spiced lamb chops as maincourse together with some local Ksara Redwine, which was a cuve of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah. It is a light but intense lebanese wine which may not compair with its french or italian peers but which goes well with the food and is a good choice if you like to try a local flavour.
With the lamb we also had some grilled chicken wings with a typical charcoal flavour which was a bit plain to our pallets but nevertheless enjoyable.
We would recommend the place anytime and will probably go back. To us it seemed a good value for money experience.
