“Large portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Beware of ordering too much. The portions are substantial and very filling. However, I ordered fish skewers for the main course but the fish was overcooked and tasteless. I was given a grilled snapper to replace it, but that too was overcooked. However, my companion ordered another fish course and that was tasty and well presented. The mezzes are fresh and tasty. It is probably the best Lebanese style restaurant in Nairobi.

The restaurant has quite a nice ambiance and the service has improved since our last visit some months ago. The wine list also seems to have improved but the wines are on the pricey side. The restaurant as ample car parking.

“Nice Mezze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

A nice place for some authentic lebanese Mezze. It has a air-castle and for children. The staff is friendly.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

Kept meaning to try this place for a while as we only live around the corner and finally got around to it. We were warmly welcomed and surprised at how large the restaurant is, we chose to sit in the outside area which is very pleasant indeed. The background music was slightly odd varying from Rap to 10 CC! We decided to go for the mezzo for 2 and then the 3 of us ordered an extra mezzo dish, it was far too much. They bring pita bread, dips and beetroot before you order and we tried to save ourselves for the main event but it was difficult to resist. The staff were very friendly and professional and were only too happy to pack up what we couldn't manage for us to take home. The food was excellent, a wide selection and all home made and very tasty. The wine selection is adequate and reasonably priced. We shall be returning here regularly and certainly recommend Cedars Restaurant.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Love this restaurant. The chicken wings are out of this world and the salad selection is just brilliant. Service is always good and the food, no matter what we have ever ordered, has always been on point. A classics restaurant indeed.
