Great Lebanese food . Mezze at its best ! If you want a typical Lebanese meal with all its deliciousness...This is the place. Great to entertain guests or introduce them to our wonderful cuisine.

The overall experience was disappointing and not up to the usual for this restaurant: slow service, food items from the menu no longer available and even their tasty thyme buns we were told were out of stock. We ordered some alcoholic beverages: they dont do cocktails, the portion is very small and highly... More

Came here for dinner as we were staying at a hotel nearby. The location in the bay complex was great, the food better and the service was very good. Highly recommend a visit and do come with a big appetite and expect to be here a while. It's not a place to rush.

Drink Ksarak and... More

Food is good like in any other Leila, some outstanding and other not but good. The seating outside is a plus, facing the marina. Service is also good although waiters gave me the feeling they were in a hurry to clean the table and leave while customers were still seated. Overall good lebanese food for value
