Situated only a 10 minutes walk from the Hyatt Regency, this restaurant offers good Mediterranean fare, large portions at reasonable prices. Great dip like huumus and baba ganoush. Lamb chops are "to die for". I enjoyed tasting the Lebanese wines as well.

Had been once for dinner but would likely recommend the lunch buffet. Quality food and the ability to try things you wouldn’t normally get to try. Would arrive before noon if possible. Always a wait for lunch!
