Dinner with friends, friendly staff, delicious mint tea though the courses were not really too lebanese to me. Very agreeable restaurant.

When you live in SW France you don't want to eat duck all the time so when I was looking for something a bit different I found this on TA!

The food is simple but lovely and the option of different levels of spiceyness means its great for everyone. The real treat is the mint tea, which instead... More
