This is a very good restaurant on many levels, food quality and quantity, service, decor (old lebanese house) and ambiance (on weekends there is a band playing). It offers a set menu from the lebanese/aleppan cuisine from mezze to main dishes to desserts. The innovation is in the mix between the two cuisines, in the revisitation of some dishes like the fattouch (where they replaced the fried bread with fried eggplant which gives a new kick to the dish) or the katayef with ice cream and finally in reviving some forgotten desserts like remmenieh (sweet pomegranate in a starch based preparation) and laymounieh (orange juice cooked with starch and sugar). If you decide to visit it think how to manage space in your stomach because lots of food is awaiting you ;-)

THis is a great restaurant to taste delicious Lebanese meals and meze. DIshes keep coming, one after another, till you cannot eat any more, and then comes the main course. Take care not to eat too much of the meze as this will leave no space in your stomach for the sweets. It's on the expensive side, but truly worth it

This place has the best Lebanese food in Beirut. The decor and atmosphere are fabulous. Service is second to none and the price reflects the upscale nature of the restaurant. Food was awesome. Be hungry when you go. Sunday brunch was wonderful and lively.
