This restaurant was a wonderful surprise. The place is small and intimate. The decor is lovely. We were served very courteously by the proprietor. The prices were very reasonable. The dishes were delicious. I particularly recommend the homemade date ice-cream. The Egyptian coffee was amazing.

Visited as a large family group. Service was friendly and courteous with patient explanation of the dishes on offer. Very accommodating to our requirements. Menu of a few dishes only, freshly prepared and delicious.
Vibrant decor
We had a lovely meal and happy experience in an otherwise over touristed city

I was not aware that this restaurant featured on TripAdvisor but I can understand why. My daughter went there for lunch during a visit to Toledo. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. The owner was delightful, friendly and knowledgeable and explained the different choices on the menu with suggestions about how they should be eaten. It was a haven of tranquility in a very busy, hot Toledo.

We were so impressed and delighted. The food is delicious and our helpul, friendly waiter, who I think was the owner, advised about combinations and happily adjusted portion sizes because we all wanted to try each others dishes. He explained how the food was prepared and usually eaten and each course was beautifully presented. The hibiscus and mint drinks were surprising, subtle and refreshing.

I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.
