This place has excellent Lebanese food, the best on the island. The service and ambiance is also excellent. If you are after real authentic Lebanese food then you should try it out. It is on the expensive side compared to other places but it's on a totally different level so worth every penny. I highly recommend

I highly recommend this restaurant, very nice food and really cooked from a Lebanese chef. The chef is observing everything, from the kitchen to the guest, and that is the evidence of the success of this restaurant.

We went for dinner on a week night and it was utterly fantastic. The service was incredibly friendly, efficient, polite but not intrusive. We ordered a selection of mezze platters and they were amazing. Really incredible food including the best hoummous I have ever had! Would HIGHLY recommend and I will definitely be going back. Recommend booking a table though... More
