“Good middle-east food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

The menu has several options, the taste was good but i expected more from the service since the place had only us.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This restaurant was just across the road from our hotel and deserted... We gingerly approached...

The restaurant itself could be modernised a LOT. This is definitely no frills, but the food - awesome! Hummus, tabbouleh, babaganoush, chicken shish.. all very good.

We liked it so much that we went there again on our last night, and lucky for us the owner, Tony, was there. We had a very long chat with him, discussing travel and all things lebanese (he is actually lebanese - that's why you get the good food here!).

If you want some good lebanese food and are up for a chat with a very friendly host, then come here.

“Excellent Hummus!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

After traveling in Colombia for 6 weeks we were very excited to have some Lebanese food that was in fact, Lebanese. The hummus was delicious - we were advised by a friend to order it with extra garlic on the side - incredible! We also had Baba Ganoush which was excellent. The ambiance is perfect on a quiet street with a great patio...and the owner is super friendly and if you are lucky will have his German Shepard puppy with him, Jag!! Too cute!! Only drawback are the prices - it is extremely pricey for what you get. Because we are traveling and "trying" to stick to a budget I had the lentil soup and aside from it being too acidic (maybe just a bad batch)...there were hardly any lentils...was a bit disappointed since it was 8,000 cop - luckily I had lots of pita with our dips! We also had the mini chicken shwarma and it was very tasty - great flavors on a crispy wrap...we will definitely return when in Medellin - but will probably skip the soup :)
