“Nice playground, food good but a bit pricy and service has improve”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We spent a Sunday afternoon there with friends. The playground is very nice and the lady taking care of the kids does a great job. The garden is nice, though no view and it can get quite packed. We were quite rapidly seated but, the table cloth was (very) dirty. That did not seem to matter for the personel even if we did mention it. Waiters seemed to be tensed! To order drinks took forever and when asking about the food, no recommendations came. Menu covers a wide range of standard and less standard lebanese food. We ended up ordering Mezze for 8. Too much food for 8! This is food for 16! The food was nice but the price was too high for what it was. And it was that issue about service. It just took too much time and we had to ask, ask and ask again.

“Hassle-free eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

After the "Carnivore experience" we wanted to go low key, with more vegetables and less theatre, so we chose this restaurant. We were a group of 5, ordered the half mezzee (for 4) and could have filled one more person at least. I can't say the food is special but some of the mezzees were really tasty and the others were not bad either. We picked a nice red wine, had a full bottle of the anis liquer called Arrar (did not drink it all but take half of it with us - it was perfectly OK), and walked away (well, not literally of course) full and happy paying the approx. $170 for 5.
