It is surely a culinary trip into the old traditional Levantine food menu with its Aleppian and Turkish influence... with a Lebanese touch.

Once you’ve tried this exquisite fine Lebanese cuisine place , you’ve tried it all.

Set in a traditional palace dining hall setting, this place offers a service second to non at any standard.

The whole experience gets boosted with a wonderful Oud live music .

I have been invited to this restaurant three times this year, the last being in June. The place is nicely decorated, the silverware is so fancy as if you are dining in a palace, and the staff are very professional. The food is always a set menu with many different dishes that all tasted great. The only problem was that the portion size is rather small, so it is not possible to get more than a tablespoon or two of each dish. It feels like you are in a tasting fair.
In the end you feel stuffed with all that you have eaten. Overall experience is nice but you pay more than you get.

The food is excellent. But for business dinner, forget about it. You will not be able to hear each other. Furthermore, the cigarettes, cigars and shisha allowed inside are extremely annoying for non-smokers

This fine lebanese cuisine place became an icon in beirut. Visitors would dive in a world of flavors and a thousand & one night atmosphere. 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.
