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

We had our first meal here as it was near to our apartments. The food was tasty and quite different from the local cuisine. It was a bit on the pricey side for what we had, but for a first night it was acceptable.

Fantastic 5 star plus Lebanese restaurant. Beutyfull place and just amasing service. The owner is a wealth of knowlege very educated and welcoming. Kitchen is just there for you to see and just flawless. Food was delicious and wine suggested was amazing. Slightly expensive but just great experience.

I love this place, great for a lunch or dinner or just to taste original Lebanese food. Wonderful, kind service, waiter happy to advise and super nice atmosphere. Take few different kinds of dishes and feel like in Beirut. I would recommend to everyone!

We usually a lot of different mezzes (warm and cold) and a house wine. The staff is super friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend this place! You need to try it... More
