With a great garden terrace, this is a restaurant that serves tasty food. The service was friendly and attentive. It isn't the cheapest restaurant in Zurich, but if you go for the Mezze Extra for 4 people (16 plates of mezze and 2 main courses for less than 50 chf p.p.), you'll leave with a full belly and a pleasant...

I actually would give just 1 point if this were to be judged only for food..but the server gets a point for being polite. Ordered mezze for 2..standard mix of cold & warm starters which turned out to be quite disappointing... everything was extremely tangy.. falafel was ok but rest of the fried stuff was super oily and tasteless..Wine..overpriced! Baklava... More

I was not there since 2012 then we went back last Friday, food still tasty and service very friendly and helpful and the waiter did speak English as well. I recommend this place for Lebanese food addicted ( same as I am ), not a fast food place rather a mid range restaurant, place is small so better reserve in... More

I was here with a group of friends who lived in Zürich. We As we were a large-ish group (seven people), we simply ordered a selection of hummus, salads, kebabs, and ate family style. All of the dishes were exceptionally well prepared and our waiter was brilliant. Although the restaurant is located in a residential area far from the city... More

Although the restaurant was not even half full we got more or less kicked out by the owner after telling that we just want to drink something. Well, even for dining I surely never return to this place.

In my opinion the „Palme de Beirut“ is the only Restaurant in Zurich that could claim it`s food being genuine Lebanese. Having lived in „Le Liban“ and travelled enough to try out worldwide uncountable Lebanese restaurants, being an ambitious amateur cook myself, I dare say so. Even in Geneva, where the tradition has longer been established (they started as the... More

reading some of the reviews here, I feel like I need to jump in for this restaurant that we go to every two to three months. I'm a foodie! the falafel are the best I've ever had in Europe and the meze are delicious! yes, it's for once not picture perfectly decorated (rare in a town as perfect as Zurich)... More

Went there on a friday evening. We were the First Guests. We were greeted friendly and our order came right up. Service is Good. The Food we ordered was great and tasty, the appetizer portions are too small (for what they cost). Main Course was also tasty. Now to the negative points: ambiente could be better, restaurant somehow made a... More

Service ok, but the rest is a total disappointment: small plates, food not really fresh, prices ridiculously expensive for the food you get. Most middle-eastern takeaways are better...
