Great evening, everything - the food, the music, the venue - were wonderful.

Set menu is 63$/each and we happily paid 160$ for two people, with 3 glasses of wine and large bottle each of still and sparkling water. Set menu must have been 30-40 different dishes, all very well prepared. Most diners arrived around 10 p.m., live music started around 11, with the first people leaving around 12:30/1:00.

Beautiful and elegant restaurant that serves tasty Lebanese food with a twist. the service was very disappointing as the waiters, who were very unpleasant, managed to serve our large group of 14 guests too fast and were removing mezza items off the table that were hardly touched (some even untouched), not giving us the opportunity to enjoy the mezza in the manner it should be. It was a race between us and the waiters!

Never imagined having a regular Mezza with so much variation in taste.
Regular plates were turned into a superb tasting experience matched by outstanding service and old fashioned lebanese premises.

Visited the restaurant last night with local and international colleagues. The variety, the quality and above all the taste of everything we tried was top. Nice live Arabic music around midnight - several people dancing, singing and overall enjoying the night ! Strongly recommended but booking is a must
