I tried the Mezzes and they were really good and fresh: Hoummus, Eggplant, Tabouleh... For the main course I had Kafta. It was okay. The meat wasn't that good. It was too much grilled. So it was black. And it was too much lamb in it. But okay... The service was good and friendly.

By far the best Lebanese food in Nice if not all of southern France. The staff are friendly and the ambiance is also very inviting. It is situated next to Basilique Notre-Dame de l'Assomption, and next to a busy street with easy access.

A lovely setting just off the main shopping street with a view of the Notre Dame church. We got one schwarma which came with rice, pitta and salad and was very tasty and fresh and one menu Socrate adapted for veggies which was huge and delicious. The menu had one falafel, two cheese/spinach pastries, bean stew, chilli and walnut dip,... More

Great setting next to the cathedral, and great food albeit standard Lebanese. Very filling and for a reasonable price.

An excellent experience, with good food, nice service and nice location. The portions are big; if you order a menu, be aware that it is a lot of food for a dinner.

Food fine. We had nine dishes, mix of hot and cold mezze. All vegetarian so where the no vegetarian review comes from mystifies me. The have assiette vegetarienne on their menu! Service pleasant enough. Food was not exceptional, but pleasant and reasonable value

After a few days of French food, we craved for some ethnic food and decided to try the so called best libanese in town. We are fanatic about Libanese food and have been blessed to eat it in many different places. This experience was unfortunately one of the least successful experiences. The mezze's were okay'ish, but the mains are definitely... More

We stopped in on a Sunday for a lunch before training back to Paris. We eyed several plates advertised on the blackboard out front, but once we sat down we were told that those plates were only available on weekdays. --- So why are they on the blackboard on a Sunday? Bate and switch; laziness, your guess is as good... More

We came here looking for vegetarian options and the staff would rudely point at the menu to tell us vegetarian dishes are only available at lunch time Monday to Friday. Instead of recommending us anything from the menu (e.g. vegetarian mezze) they would just let us sit there and not serve us. So we left! Worst service ever! Can't say... More
