“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.

“Address Change”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2008

This restaurant moved to Marconi 3, and it's name changed to "La Meson Andalus" or something.
My husband and I had lunch there on Jun 14th 2008, and we didn't think the food was that great. Honestly, their recipes for the hummus and yogurt cucumber salad didn't taste very authentic. There were no kebabs on the menu. I ended up ordering a grilled chicken breast that tasted weird, I think from the parilla used. It seems they don't use garlic at all on anything. They don't have an English menu and no one speaks English either, but the waiter put pressure on us for ordering right away, always holding the pen close to his notepad when we were still trying to communicate to understand what our options were (and I am not a totally dummy on Spanish since I speak Portuguese). Their prices are not too cheap either.
