I would recommend here if you wanted a nice secluded spot to go for dinner. the ambience... More

I must admit that the Arabic food at Joseph's is fantastic. The host is very friendly. Our server wasn't very attentive though and the restaurants was a bit hot as they had to doors open. The food was served promptly and it was excellent, although my husband didn't love the chicken soup, honestly it was bland. The experience was good... More

Situated just before KFC, obliquely opposite The Country Club and Shoppes of Maraval in Maraval. A variety of grilled food or mediterranean food. Must try their onion soup, delicious!

Our first restaurant visit for the Week and it was memorable. Started with their famous mushrooms, enjoyed the main course but mostly was pleased with a gluten free dessert of a Ararbic medley made with ground rice. Unforgettable.

This experience was lovely from making the reservation to having the meal. The host was so gracious with my numerous changes in the size of my party. Great service from pleasant staff and awesome food. They didn't get 5 stars because my friends and I started to feel a bit warm while eating. All in all a great experience. I... More
