“Lebanese Food. Terrific!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

You can share many of these plates. Andalus, if that is the correct name, is fabuloso. It closes about 6 pm, so you must get there in time to eat. What great Lebanese food. Not cheap, but we usually share.

“Amazing Lebanese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

Honestly, not the easiest place to find but what a jewel! The food is amazing and the owner (who is very nice) is always there. This is where the people who know the city really well go to, especially if they like lebanese food. I would recommend the tasting platter and the shawarma!

“The best Lebanese restaurant in Mexico City!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2010

If you are into Lebanese food, this is a MUST in Mexico City. They also have another restaurant in Santa Fe that is beautifully decorated! The Chef Mohamed Mazeh is truly wonderful and takes you into a gourmet journey to middle-east.

Don’t miss the Shawarma and the Kibbi Naye is the best! Highlight are the Lebanese desserts, very hard to choose from all the wonderful options.
