We came with a fully vegetarian group of four and were not disappointed. We ordered the 15 small dishes as starters and were already half full after this. Because of that and the high oil content of the fried aubergine, potato and zucchini we could only eat half of the main dish. I recommend to just order two starters or... More

Friendly welcome (party of 6 friends), English menus offered. Good selection of Middle-Eastern dishes, including 3 or 4 vegetarian options. Food was superb - tasty, well cooked, perfectly seasoned and in substantial portions. Surprised at how low the bill was - absolute bargain. Attentive service, great atmosphere - absolute winner of a restaurant!

I always love to go to the Al Howara, the food is great and plenty. You have to try the mixed appetizers if you go. The staff is very friendly and attentive. But make a reservation before you go, it's always full and you might not get a table.

Seriously good Arabic fare. Tried the mixed grill. Be prepared for a massive plate with loads of rice and meats - lamb, chicken and ground meats. Delicious! Would go back! No foreign credit cards accepted!

Reviews suggested going early if not booked. We turned up at 17.50 and it was closed, it opened at 18.00. We went for a drink and came back at about 18.15 and found it open and one third full already. Very popular place. So definitely go early or book, this was a Saturday though so that may have made a... More

This is an excellent lebanese / arabic restaurant. The place is very big, but popular, so you're definitely better off booking on saturdays. We had the selection of 10 small starters (which are actually not that small) and a main course each, which was probably too much. The starters are very fresh, mainly vegetarian (lentils, potatoes, aubergines, tzaziki, felafel -delicious-,... More

I love Levantine cuisine and have tried it in different cities, all cooked by people from the area. Al Howara is authentic, no strings attached! Delicious, fresh food. I highly recommend warm & cold starters (there are 2 options, one with 10 the other with 15 small dishes), lentil soup, chicken & vegetarian main dishes. Since I do not eat... More

It was one of the best restaurants I've ever been too. It's beautiful inside, the crew is very nice and the food is just amazing. The starters are awesome and the lamb tastes like heaven!

I happen to live 10 minutes from Al Howara, and I have to say that it is one of the best restaurants in Wuppertal. My girlfriend accidentally stumbled upon it with a few friends, and she came home raving about the atmosphere and the food. Since then, we have gone back as a couple numerous times, and I always enjoy... More
