With few foreigners, fish and fattoush were amazing. Staff were courteous and mezze was delicious! Keep it up yet you can improve on nationality of servers in a country full of skilled resto labour!

Decoration and ambiance of the place is very nice. Very well known for its fish dishes. A relatively good selection of wines is also available. We ordered fish that was steam cooked. Excellent! However, when we were there a language barrier was evident. We were not Lebanese and communication in English was difficult.

We went there for lunch, the variety of the dishes was very satisfying. The staff is attentive and the food is great. If you choose the right seat you will have a nice sea view. Must try.

An excellent restaurant for fish and sea food. Very good service. We had a fantastic meal with a variety of dishes, starting with marvelous salads, hummus, kebbe, baba-ganoush (eggplant dish)... The grilled squids (calamars grillés) were exceptional, fresh and delicate !! The grilled bass was excellent. The fried mullet also very good. They offered a very generous series of delicious...

The place is pretty nicely set up. I am not a great fan of the typical long tables for 20 that you find all across the region, but this did not feel that way. We had several appetizers which were good. The fish kibbeh was excellent. We had some fried fish with tahina and fried arabic bread. That is a... More
