The restaurant located in an old fortress. Food and service are good. The experience is great, after eating go and sit on the lounge area for a coffee and sweets. Recommended.

The place was nice and the staff were friendly. The food was not good. The meat tasted of lighter fluid and the falafel was not fresh. The rest of the salads were mostly mediocre.

Spent about $20/head for a plated lunch of beef and chicken kebab with an assortment of Mezzes. Food is decent and you can be in and out of the place in an hour if group is not too big.
