Popped by for an early dinner one Saturday evening when staying nearby. Staff all very nice, cold beer, starters were delicious and very generous. Shared the fish for a main and took their wine recommendation. Huge glasses and very tasty (Lebanese vino). Later a gratis desert appeared for both of us. Very reasonably priced and highly recommended.

The food is ok but Nothing special. The starters are the best. The price is acceptable. Quality is ok. Location is nice. Nice to try it once!

What a pleasure to spend an evening at "L'Orient", my favorite Libanese restaurant. The cuisine is simple and straightforward, delivered with a high level of sophistication. The tastes are not really unusual, probably it is more the combination of well known flavors and spiced that make up such an delightful experience. The Mezze, of course! Never miss to order them...

The Food was really nice, but the service was extremely slow and unfriendly. You have to decide whats more important to you. I am mostly driven by my stomach but I will think about it before I visit again.

I always say that taste is something unique for everyone. A dish, excellent for me can be disgusting for someone else. So I'm not going to review the dishes (all of them where delicious for me although some of them not spicy enough and I'm used to oriental food). The atmosphere, the dishes presentation, the excellent staff made the overall... More

These meals are not spicy-hot, but they are finely seasoned and appealing also to the eye. Customers are locals, a good mixture of old and young, female and males, and you will not find one of them in a McD. Staff is overstretched

Have eaten here several times, the food is always delicious. They are almost always busy, so a reservation is recommended.

We had lunch on a Sunday afternoon (2pm). The place was almost empty - so much for the good atmosphere. The waiter was unfriendly, obviously tired. He even refused to serve us a glass of water.. oh well, the food was very good. If you dislike unfriendly staff just as much as I do, don't go there. However, if you... More

Trip Advisor works!! But we knew that anyway!! Picked from a short list to meet new friends for a meal for the first time, and totally delighted. Small and very clean....you need to book ahead! Friendly welcome. Shortish but well formed menu offering a la carte and set meal options for two. They were all appealing, so tough choices to... More
