Honestly, I don't understand the hype over this place. You can never find a table, and when you do the service is so horrible because they are always busy. The staff treats you like you should be thankful you found a table at all. The food is not great, but average and mediocre at best. It's just the name "lilou"... More

Good food selection and a lovely atmosphere. The second floor was nice and quiet, and after evening, we watched the world go by outside with a cup of tea.

I've heard a lot about this place and my expectations were much higher than what we got. It is a small place in Adliyah. We tried some dishes, starters and main courses and desserts. honestly, only the dessert lived up to our expectations. Everything else was very normal and does not justify the price.

We had our coffee and ordered breakfast while enjoying the lovely setting there inside & outside. Actually, every time we visit this Cafe, we... More
