Description: Set in the heart of Rome, where Via Veneto meets Via Sistina, “Mandaloun” Restaurant tempts you with the finest and traditional Lebanese cuisine. The environment is casual and elegant, just as all chain restaurants “Mandaloun”, present all over the world. Until late at night, you can taste delicious food, typical of a culinary tradition that fully represents Mediterranean cuisine worldwide. Today “Mandaloun” is a chain of fine restaurants. The Barakats, the founding family, take pride in their rich and long-lasting experience in catering and hospitality that dates back to 1930, when “Al Ahweh” opened in the picturesque village of Ain Ebel, in the mountains of Southern Lebanon. In 2002, thanks to their great intuition for business, the Barakats opened the first “Mandaloun” Restaurant in the UK. Even though the British market is highly competitive and selective, the activity was so successful that new restaurants opened both in the UK and in the US.

Food was great but a little pricey!!It was worth it. As a Middle Easterner, the Lebanese culture know how to make good food. Now let’s talk the bad. One of the servers lacks integrity and should not be working there. Everything was great until we asked for our bill. He placed a 10% service charge which was fine but initially refused to give me the final bill. On top of that decided to give himself a $40 tip to charge on my credit card. Thank goodness I caught him! He played it off as he was just joking and he knew what he tried to do. I was going to tip them additional money but I lost trust in the servers. Very sneaky and devilish....

Very relaxed sitting outside in the early afternoon. We had water, beer, Aperol Sprizz to drink and falafel and couscous for eating. Everything has been very good and was served very well and friendly. Prices are absolut acceptable. The toilets have been the cleanest in complete rome.

We found out that the inner restaurant is absolutely beautyful - better than the pictures are showing.

We would definitely go the again.

Ciao
