Description: Enter into the magical world of the Middle East and the thousand and one nights in the occasion of a lunch or a dinner at the Arabesque restaurant in Geneva. White leather and black decor combined with warm lighting create a unique ambience, which is underlined by an exceptional Lebanese menu. The Arabesque offers gourmet food lovers traditional dishes as well as house specialities. From grilled meat and fish, hummus and tabbouleh, to the inescapable selection of cold and hot mezes, the menu offers something for every discerning guest. The kitchen works exclusively with certified halal meat. It is possible to order take-out.

Food was very good. Now servings are small (nouvelle cuisine size) when Lebanese food is also about generosity. Then the prices are outrageous. Not set at cost + margin but at maximum possible to still have clients. Why not, this is a for profit business. Unlikely to go back.

Good things first: very friendly and attentive service .
Restaurant space unattractive with two banquet rows and little decor (which you would expect in place called "Arabesque"
Menu makes interesting reading, however bread filled with minced lamb was bland , roasted pine nuts that were part of the dish were wet and soft. Hummus was bland and of a very firm texture . The marinated chicken came with spicy but bone dry and lukewarm potatoes. Sent them back asking for freshly prepared potatoes , however got the same potatoes back, now warm (refried?) but even drier.
At this point sent everything back and enjoyed the wine !
Extremely disappointing dining experience in a five star hotel!

Very central location. F&B quality was all that you would expect from a top-rated restaurant serving Arabic Cuisine

L’Arabesque at the Hotel Wilson is a very cozy and elegant upscale Lebanese restaurant. The setting is very comfortable with large tables surrounded by modern oriental décor. On one end, there are two tall and impressive crystal vase shaped lamps and at the other end a massive copper coffee pot on a golden mosaic titles. The service is very formal and discreet. The food is authentic and well-crafted in the preparation and presentation. We started will different kind of cold and warm mezze, from the classical to modernized version, followed with an assortment of skewers and shawarma served with a special rice. Desserts were too tempting to skip. Pleasant experience.

The restsurant is located at Wilson hotel. They have most of the lebanese food. The food is a bit pricey, tastes good. The desert part is the best.
