I came here with my family who visited me in Lebanon on my birthday and I think this was the most exquisite birthday dinner, I ever had the chance to experience.
The taste, quality and variety of the traditional Lebanese food is simply outstanding.
When we arrived we were promptly attended and guided to our reserved table. The service was prompt and polite, as you can expect from such a fine-dining place.
The restaurant doesn't have a menu but the waiters simply start serving you food. First they served us some bread and salad, followed by cold mezze, hot mezze and dessert. The food is served on big plates which are shared with the whole table. There is something for everybody even if you have dietary restrictions (veggie, vegan, lactose, celiac disease, peanuts, seafood etc.). So no need to worry or request a 'special meal'. The food included all the classics, such as hummus, muhammara, mutabal, shish taouk, grape leaves, tabbouleh, kibbeh and much more. The food is served in abundance and we could always ask for seconds in case we finished a plate. Though this was definitely not needed because food was served in abundance!!! In addition to the delicious food, they also have a fine selection of Lebanese wine and Shisha of course.
To round of the atmosphere, they had a band perform live throughout the evening.
The restaurant definitely is pricey but totally worth its money for a special occasion or the finale of your Lebanon trip.
- Make sure to come hungry, as you will want to be able to try all the plates that they offer.
- Be aware, that there is more food to come. So don't fill yourself up with the cold mezze already and definitely leave some for the dessert.
- Booking is essential. It is best to call a few days in advance.
- It is better to come a bit later in the evening, since the band only starts playing relatively late and you will want to enjoy their music.
- Plan enough time for your dinner and don't expect to go somewhere else afterwards as you most likely will be stuffed.
