Arrived just before midday, already busy, within 10 minutes queues forming. Parts of the restaurant dark, better beneath the windows. Not disabled friendly steep staircase to negotiate. Food, on balance a good experience but not exceptional. A place to be seen, but not a relaxing time.

This seems to be a very popular eating establishment. We had reservations so we were seated promptly. The server was very helpful, and told us about the specials. The food was tasty, and the portions were generous.

A fun dining experience combining good food & great ambiance. We were here on a Saturday night, when this place was a hive of chatter. The food was good, but we have to say that our favourite part of the evening was the ambiance of the place - dim lighting accentuates the art deco features of this restaurant. As for... More

I went here with my family, but I couldn't eat here as I'm a celiac who reacts strongly to gluten. My waitress was also a celiac and warned me that there is the possibility of cross contamination. I really appreciated that she let me know this. On the other hand all of my companions said that the food was wonderful.... More

One of my good friends once said, if the restaurant has a clean floor it means the kitchen is clean too... The place is very clean, the staff friendly and food is fresh & delicious! The atmosphere is like you came to visit you grandmother that knows all your favorite dishes! We will most certainly come back!

We persisted in finding this spot for lunch. Excellent Lebanese dishes with great flavors. I loved the Chicken Tawook. Lots of gluten free and vegetarian and vegan options. My only disappointment was the pita. It's very thin and a little tough, unlike the soft pillowy pita I've had elsewhere. Their brunch menu also looked very good. One of the few... More

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
