Although we didn’t have a chance of tasting anything (because of early closing due lockdown), we had extremely good time there. There were plenty reasons; good view, weather and very friendly staff, in particular, Zeyad. He is very kind, warm and helpful. It’s my first...time of writing review but it is definitely worth it. Thank you, Zeyad and good luck😊👍🏽More

Smoking is allowed inside. There are tables outside though and you can’t really notice the smoking. I would say 90% are tourists and most of them don’t smoke
