A quaint little restaurant. Wooden beams and a cave like booth give it a rustic ambiance, great for intimate dinners. Food was good quality standard lebanese. The chicken shish tawouk was tender and succulent as was the sea bass. However, the sea bass was served on an empty plate with no garnishing, no salad, no potatoes not even bread which at £18 for the dish was quite disappointing.
Fattoush and lentil soup were also good. Home made fried potatoes were a little over cooked but better than chips you get in most restaurants. The service was average, not especially friendly but attentive enough and the food came in good time. The mains selection was limited but I thought an interesting mix of options. Portion sizes were average, not overly generous. Before your order arrives, some olives, fresh bread and a bowl of fresh vegetables is served which is nice although I'd recommend they stop serving the whole tomato as I can't imagine how diners would eat that but the sliced carrots and baby cucumbers were nice to snack on. They also bring a very small bowl half baba ghabouj and half tabouleh with the dinner, however I did not realise until I got home that there is a £3 cover charge per person which makes the additional accompaniments less impressive. I'd expect atleast a fruit platter and a free bottle of water with a cover charge. The restaurant closes quite early, around 10:30 on a weekday. All in all I will be visiting this restaurant again as I very much liked the intimate setting and the food was nice.
