First time in this restaurant, many times in Bucuresti Fenice ! Oriental specialties with Very good specific taste, moderated prices, elegant and clean place. You find “Mansaf”, Hummus, .... and “Knafeh” ( ask for separated dessing -sweet liquid- as they put much on the Knafeh)....Management and Some of the Stuff need to be impruved and educated for such special place. Look to the price list - be sure to have the newest one before ordering- and compare the note before you pay, other wise you will have only a ”sorry’ for the extra payment and no money back “ as what happened with me! As I was tolled the manager “the principle not the amount”. Again, an excellent exclusive place to go and invite your guests for a special Orientale “Real Lebanese” food! Don’t forget to have Arabian Coffee with haill!More

We went for dinner to this restaurant, on the terrace! The staff was very friendly and made some nice recommendations. The food was really good and the service was done quite quickly. The food was very colorful, tasty and full of flavor. We enjoyed it!...At the end we have ordered desert and we had to wait longer than we has waited for the food (more than 30 minutes). The staff mentioned that this is due to long process. However, this might have been just a small excuse that they forgot about the order! Beside the above, I might try it again once back in Iasi!.More

I was a little disappointed with this place. Lots of recommendations and it's clearly very popular. I found the service impersonal and not very welcoming. I was put at a table near the door, probably as I was a not very welcome solo diner. The...food was OK. I went for the Lebanese options. There was nothing I didn't eat and enjoy but I've had far better Lebanese food elsewhere. I get the impression it would be more fun in a large group.More

So I was a little bit surprised, this restaurant is very different from what I expected. Downstairs you have the atmoshpere of a very sophisticated, luxurious restaurant. A gorgeous girl was playing the violin, people were dressed fancy and wine glasses could be heard in...the background clinking. Yet, the place was crowded and we were lucky enough to get a table upstairs where the situation was very different. Upstairs is where you taste the real experience of the local. It was crazy, buzy, authentic. The waiters were serving huge pita portions, plates full of kebaps, the clients were smoking hookahs, everything was loud, everything was fun! I ordered the Kebap instead of trying any other fancy thing in the menu and trust me IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER! The fancy vibes from downstairs led me into beliving something else, but I am so happy I got to see the real deal woth this restaurant. I can’t wait to go back!More

Food was decent. The atmosphere was nice and the staff were friendly. Only quibble is that service was a little bit slow. Might've been because the place was pretty busy and the waiter was serving other tables all over the room, but it took me...a lot longer than I expected to get the waiter's attention to get my check.More

Probably the best oriental style places in Iasi, always great to eat here. Their homemade hummus and bread is especially tasty.

Pleasant atmosphere, good food, decent wines selection. Grilled octopus is excellent. Another huge plus: they are opened until 1 am , there is no single place around this area will serve you food that late.

The food is Lebanese and many do not understand what does it contain or how does the dish taste. In my opinion a quarter of the dishes are rubbish(fast food) and 3 quarters are splendid. Tell the waiter what you like and what not. I...reccomend the meze with flat bread.More

Excellent authentic Lebanese food, made with top quality selected ingredients, served by professional staff in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I went twice during my stay in Iasi, and if I had time I would have come a third time, but I had to fly...back to Switzerland. So it will be for the next time, hopefully soon. I can definitely recommend Fenice Palas restaurant.More
