The food at this place is amazing. Haven't ate such good quality as in his place. Only issue is the staff is so attentive and very close to the tables to serve you that you can't enjoy a private talk with your friends.

Okay.... i dont know where to start but they will over feed you with the amount of food they serve, yes you read it right OVER FEED you that you wont be able to move for hours!

they only have one option which is a set menu for $65 excluding VAT which includes 25-35 cold appetizer, 5-10 hot appetizer, 2 main dish and 6 types of dessert.

I have to admit its the nicest place i've been to and they serve the most delicious food in beirut if not lebanon! I only give 5 stars if it really deserves it and this is on of the few!

Top delicious food they serve:
-Lamb skewers
-Fattet Betenjan
-Prawn skewers
-Labnah
-Stuffed pickled cucumbers
-Mijadara
-Vine leaves

Tip:
-make a reservation
-just taste the food so you will be able to make it to the dessert :)
-live band starts at 10:30
-restaurant starts serving dinner at 8:30
