We came to town on a whim and did not realize all the shops would be closed. We stopped here for lunch and boy was it a treat. The scrimp scampi and the Chicken plate was awesome! Highly recommend!

Wow! This place is amazing. The Red Fish is a must if you like seafood. It's served with a light bed of rice, a gorgeous hummus and wonderful side salad. I can't wait to go back to Cafe Petra. N.B. The Lebanese Tea was fantastic.

Great Food, Service, & Atmosphere. Everyone was very pleased with the lunches. We were right next door to the park & walked over for the arts & crafts festival after lunch.

Who could have guessed that a Greek / Lebanese restaurant located off the beaten path would be so good !!!! The food at Petra was one of the best, if not the best, Greek restaurants ever!! From the Hummus to the main course the food...was second to none. The ONLY aspect of Petra that wasn’t 5 stars is the building / atmosphere... It’s located in an old food mart / gas station....More

I really enjoy eating at Cafe Petra! I always get the vegetarian plate with its 5 vegetable selection. The okra, spinach pie, squash and baba ghanoush are near perfect. The tabouleh is good and the fried feta cheese is a must have. They also have...very good tea. Pleasant decor and an attentive wait staff. Slightly off the beaten path it is a gem in the rough!More

Tried the Lebanese Tea... Amazing! Won't ruin the surprise, you need to get your own and guess the ingredients! My wife had the Chicken Swarma, she loved it. I had the beef ... Kafta with potato and Tahini sauce, it was good. The Eggplant appetizer,...I wanted to lick the plate it was sooo good! Restrooms spotless.More

I eat here every time I visit Saint Francisville (once every three months). The food is consistently excellent and the service is fantastic. The rack of lamb was seasoned and cooked perfectly! I always eat at the bar. The bartender is extremely attentive.

My husband and I ate here twice during our stay in Saint Francisville because it was that good. Best lentil soup I’ve ever had. Moussaka was amazing, and my steak kabob was tender and perfectly done. Hummus was some of the best I’ve ever had....Service was excellent. Do yourself a favor, and eat here. You won’t be sorry.More
