Very quick, friendly service. Good value. Excellent mint tea. Fantastic falafel and hummus, as well as a delicious mezze plate. Easy to find. Well worth a visit.

We weren't sure what to expect but we were not dissapointed. The food was fantastic and the service was very good. Lots of vegan options, definitely a winner!

We were tired of seeing italian cafes along the pedestrian street and decided to try this lebanese spot. Pleasantly surprised. We had two appetizers and some tea . The hummus, tabouleh and moussaka were perfectly spiced and well balanced. Enough food to fill us both. Only downside is the lighting is a bit odd at night but dont let it... More

Originally went there to have soup only since I had a bad experience at another place. It was hot, vegetables were perfect as was the chicken-tasty-and was a cure all for me. Went back when I was back to normal. All dishes were amazingly fresh and tasty. Dishes that were suppose to be hot were HOT those cold-cold. The owner-Nadal-was... More

My girlfriend and I went here while in San Cristobal de las Casas. We chose this restaurant because we both love Mediterranean food and their was an English menu sitting in front. Also, nobody was heckling us to try and get us into there. We both had kebabs and a side of olives. The food was delicious and filling. The... More

My first impression of the restaurant wasn't too positive - I didn't see many people and, according to my gf who lived in San Cristobal for some years it was usually empty- so I didn't have high expectations. But I decided to try it anyway and hell I'm glad I did. The head chef and owner is an excellent host.... More

This is restaurant is authentic Lebanese, vs some place that serves falafel and hummus. Not that there is anything wrong with having Mediteranian dishes on your menu, I am just calling it the way it is. The food is all Lebanese, the music is all Lebanese, the art is all Lebanese, and the chef is all Lebanese. There are estimates... More

Popped in here on a rainy afternoon and was impressed. Had the kofta roll and shwarma and it was excellent with a very cold beer. The owner/chef was very gracious and treated us to a killer dessert. Good people watching at the tables outside. A very nice change of pace.

We were so happy to find you. Fabulous, friendly and cozy little place on the Guadelupe walking street. We chose a small table inside where it was warm and we were very happy with our menu choices. There were many items to choose from. We chose he chicken shwarma and a hummus and falafel plate. Both quite enjoyable. We enjoyed... More
