Classy and refined it takes you back to the glory days of the city and time stands still with every taste you try..a place not to miss either you are a tourist or resident...this is an incomparable experience in the world of gastronomy.

A set menu of dozens of dishes, em sherif is a place to visit in group. It offers almost every kind of Lebanese cuisine mezzeh, each cooked in hearty and homey way. It serves a large variety of vegetarian and meat based traditional dishes, some are revisited and modernized. Always leave room for dessert.

It is a set menu; for foreigners, no need to worry just chill and eat... for locals, rediscover traditional dishes which are revisited for some and cooked to perfection for all of them.
We had the pleasure of spending time with the owner who described every single dish... all i can say is either you are passionate or you are not... all i saw, heard and smelled was passion and outstanding dishes.
Worth every single minute and dollar spent and calorie gained.
Will i come again? Without any doubt... when? Before i fly back

This place deserves a perfect score in service, food taste, innovation in display, fresh juice drinks (Pomegranates) and desserts. It was a very pretentious looking place at first but once you sit down and start having the food and experiencing the service, it lives up to its expectations. Expect to pay around $40 to $80 per head.
