Had a relaxing breakfast in here in this fresh-looking, clean and airy Arabic Asylum. Perfect for chilling out over an unhurried breakfast. They do Arabic, French and German breakfasts - I went for the Arabic - lovely - 10 Euros.

Went here off the back of a local recommendation and it did not disappoint! We had the sharing platter, which was delicious. Really nice staff and good service. Also quite cool how a wall projector was playing Lawrence of Arabia on repeat!

We had a fabulous lunch at Lawrence. The restaurant is beautifully decorated in white lattice-work with patterned details. A light and airy take on Arabian decor that was just gorgeous. The food was fantastic...would definitely go again!

Stumbled upon this place and were very pleasantly surprised! Not only was the food amazing and the service fantastic but we also loved the philosophy behind the place - a partnership with refugees, aiding them to integrate using food, art & events - so cool!...More
