Made reservations and finally made it to this amazing cocoon of refined classic decor and menu. From the minute the kind staff welcomes you and until the last drop of coffee you will be transported in trip of delicate tastes and amazing colors and attention to details. A must try!

Under the arches of an old lebanese building in Ashrafieh, dwells à French chef that will blow your palate away. Beautiful food brought in, important detail, warmed plates 😃 The tables are close enough to have a background sound, but not close enough as to hear what is being said between other couples... priceless! From the hors-d'œuvre to the deserts,... More

The food is soo delicious eventhough the plates are simple standard plates. For instance, they do the best Croque monsieur plate ever and the best pain perdu! The place is very cozy. It's perfect for a couple in a special occasion. I recommend it for every couple looking to spend great time with delicious food. Nothing can spoil your evening... More

My mom recommended this restaurant, so I went thinking it's going to be just another expensive french restaurant in Beirut. But it is not! Not only because of the delicious food that is worth every penny, but because of the excellent service, the pleasant atmosphere in a well preserved old Beiruti house and the well-selected playlist. In details, I started... More

We had a very pleasant evening, the food tastes wonderful especially the Australian filet, the atmosphere is soothing and the average age suits everyone. One small remark is that the waiter should sometimes smile more. A must try.
