Libanese food, good quality, excellent service. Ask for a table on the inner balconies, here you can see the gardens. But above all you can enjoy the quiet atmosphere, so peaceful (even in the middle of the Downtown). If you do not know the names of the dishes ask to the waiter, he will be happy to explain and give... More

Excellent food at a decent price. Considering the fact that I saw many content middle eastern people I trust the authenticity of this place. Try the Lebanese plate and the ram shawarma.

​ My best friends in Mexico City are Lebanese. They took me to this restaurant (the Colonia Nápoles location it is on Nueva York #91), and told me the food is prepared the same way as it is prepared in any house in Lebanon; “like eating at home”. Since my friends are regular at this place they placed the order:... More

Nicely hidden away, well staffed, good selection. It felt a bit empty, with bad music and the hum of a refrigerator, yet the main dishes were all MX$ 120-150.

Ouffffff.....Best Lebanese Food In Mexico. Amazingly delicous tabbouleh, fattoush, wara2 3areesh, shawarma carne y pollo. Arak is great. I went with 3 mexican colleagues and they really liked it. I am happy that I found this restaurant. Our only concern was that they don't play Lebanese Music. I spoke to the owner and he promised to change the strategy :)

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
