“Cafe at any hour from breakfast to dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Nice cafe where you can have a rich buffet breakfast,or morning coffee,nice lunch at noon,or afternoon tea/coffee with nice choice of cakes,or afternoon or evening drinks or a nice dinner.The buffet breakfast in the morning is very rich with a variety of jams and nuts, fresh croissant and rolls,all kind of bread,yogurt,labne, eggs,olives,cheese and ham.Fresh orange, carrot and pomegranate juice is also on the buffet table waiting for you.at lunch you can have the plate of the day like delicious Sayadeyeh or your own choice from the menu.it is very difficult to choose your cake out of the rich choice of the cakes platter.Good food in a nice atmosphere.

“Decent food and setting, but very poor service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

We went there on a business dinner and the atmosphere and restaurant setting was very nice. Food quality is decent and they offer a wide variety of dishes. The biggest downside is the very poor quality of service and seemingly untrained staff. We asked for menus in English (all menus there were in French) and we had to wait for 15-20 minutes and go and follow-up with them for 4 times before they came back and said that they do not have any (very embarrassing in front of our guests). The waiter did not even apologise for having us wait for so long, and then brought a plate of mashed potatoes to "compensate" us for the bad service (again, this was completely out of place given that we had ordered sushi). Overall, we would think twice before going there again.
