We picked this place from the reviews on tripadvisor and are so glad we did. We didn't realize how much seafood spaniards eat which is a problem for our son with fish and shellfish allergies. The restaurant was eclectic in decor but the service was superb. We shared hummus, eggplant cream (yum), falafel (best we've ever had), eggplant with tomato (oh my it's good), tagine (comfort food), salad, baklava :) and drinks. The tea was poured over fresh mint and was sweetened and even my son who dislikes tea loved it. We are currently debating going back for dinner. We spent 15€ x 4 for lunch somewhere else but our whole dinner came to 47€ And we were stuffed.

Found this place tucked away in Toledo and so happy we did. Absolutely delicious food, best hummus I've ever had. The service was brilliant with a very kind owner who went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. We had sadly misjudged our train times to get home and so sadly had to leave just as the incredible food arrived, but Ghaleb kindly let me take the plate wrapped in foil which was tasted divine after my little dash for the train. 100% would recommend this place, it was delicious. The 10 euro menu of the day was perfect we got a mixture between the group so we could try everything!

Fantastic food!! From the outside it Looked closed. We almost left then saw a couple go in the large brown doors. So glad we did. Brilliant food. The owner is very helpful & friendly. We trooped all around Toledo to find this place. Well worth the effort!

We were on a food hoping tour in Toledo. After some tapas in another place, we found here following TA's review. Tried the tomato with eggplant recommended by the owner and it was fantastic.

We dined at this very unique restaurant last night. What a great authentic atmosphere, like walking into Aladdin's cave. Ghaleb the owner went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. He has made a huge effort to make his restaurant as authentic as possible. After perusing the delicious menu we decided on a number of dishes and with Ghaleb's help ordered a feast.
The food was delicious and just what we were hoping for, an authentic middle eastern experience. The hummus and falafel was to die for. The special salad was delicious and the eggplant and tomato is highly recommended. The great atmosphere just added to a great night. To top off a great evening Ghaleb provided some mint tea and small dessert. We need to go back ASAP. Highly recommended.
