This is the place to be for a rich culinary experience in Beirut. You will enjoy all lebanese dishes in one sit. Highly recommended to bring some friends to manage it all. Besides the ambience is pleasant to the senses. The service is excellent. No chance for you to enjoy this place without a reservation.

The restaurant, the food, the service and the band are spectacular. My only suggestion is they answer the phone in a more professional way then just ‘allo’.

I wrote in a previous review that i love this place, but i hate the fact that they serves shisha indoors.... i still do. This time we were seated on the upper floor. It is more spacious, higher ceiling and found it much more confortable. Although shisha was served upstairs as well, it did not feel as smokey as downstairs.
They also had live music that night on both floors.
The menu, the quality of the food, tbe service were all outstanding... as usual.
Excellent overall.

The place to be seen for sure, this place is incredibly busy and deservedly so as the food is incredible.
I can’t tell you the names of the dishes we ate as I didn’t order, all I can say is that every dish was bursting with flavour and really well presented.
The lamb dish, served in a cream sauce, was so tender, the raw beef dish was mouth watering.....
The dessert was yummy - a sort of vanilla ice cream covered in a milky sort of candy floss which probably sounds gross but you have to try it, it’s very moorish and I had to stop myself from scoffing it all.
Fabulous restaurant, fabulous food, can’t wait to return.
