“Family restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Great food, great hospitality, super recommended!! The place belongs to Simon, Rafy and their family and you will surely feel part of it. Sweet people, sweet food, worth every cent!! Go for the "mezze" dish!

“The best lebanese in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

A quaint and cosy ambience combined with the extreme warmth of the restaurant owners Rafiq and his family, with the excellent food make it my no 1 choice for lebanese food in Amsterdam! Being vegetarian, they are in a position to offer some great choices, usually each time different from the other using fresh produce. A must visit for locals and tourists alike!

“Excellent Middle Eastern Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

We ordered the communal mezze plate with our own individual main course. Everything was
outstanding, and good texture considering I was on a soft-food diet at the time. A bit pricey at
22+ euros/person, but probably in-line for Amsterdam.

“flavourfull”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Full of flavours, perfectly spiced, great atmosphere and great staff/owner(s). A treat, had a selection of mezze - Labne (perfect soft taste) Baba Ganoush (great smoked taste of the aubergines) and Falafel (very nice spiced, the best I had ever). As main dish had the Riz al Djej, with tabouleh, foul and humus. Great flavours, perfectly balanced!!!

“Looking for Lebanese food & found it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

The food satisfies Lebanese food fans deprived from or missing it. Good taste especially the kebbah. Sheesh tawook below expectation. Price of Mezzeh menu for 2 is way too high considering what's offered but it's plenty of food.
