Went with colleagues. The food was spectacular and was paired with a lovely French wine. Try the osso bucco! You’ll thank me later. Their crème caramel was delicious with a surprise flavour twist. The owner was very kind and checked in on us throughout the...More

A lovely family style restaurant with real traditional Lebanese home cooking. This is as close to authentic as you get in Beirut.

This place is very cool, "bistrot" style. Samia's mum surely knew how to cook traditional Lebanese dishes. It will remind you your childhood: Maacaroni bil furn and bifteak are not ancestral dishes in Lebanon but they are surely part of our 20th century's heritage.
