I love this restaurant but they insist to precook Dover sole with butter in the pan, so when you order a grilled one it is served greasy and dry!!! Come on, you are much better that this. Wagyu meet is not at the level: try...More

This is one of, if not the, finest restaurant in Lebanon. The food was just perfect, The whole experience, from the delicate appetizers, all the way to the pain perdu (best I have ever had), was memorable.
