We had a lunch in this restaurant for 5 persons, which we were enforced to set as the waiter is hunting for customers in the front street. True, we elected to set and eat, yet it was very annoying that someone is chasing you and your family and giving you all lies about the good service and food. Generally, the food was good, yet very pricy and does not worth it. Comparing the prices with the nearby by, same good quality Lebanese restaurant, almost half price. I have a suspicious of fraud and, therefore, I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We had a very nice dinner there. The service is very kind and the food quality was good. Perhaps, it was too much quantity so it could be a little bit cheaper, but anyhow we had a very good time there.

Excelent mint tea

we were hungry at lunch time, we were looking for a couscous place and took the closest from station. It filled up our stomach but nothing will make us return there, neither the food nor the service.

The food was simply divine! Tajine Agneau Pruneau was out of this world!! Hearty Middle Eastern cuisine.

We are very diligent about reviewing restaurants in a discerning manner. We were indeed met outside as we are at many restaurants in Europe ; however we were not "hassled" in any way. Has we been, we would not have stayed. In fact, we walked on and looked at several other restaurants that he'd been recommended. We returned, went in, were seated at a nice table for two, were given a sample of the wine we had ordered to be sure we like it, and began one of the best dining experiences we have had in Europe. My husband ordered the lamb couscous and I ordered the lamb with vegetables tajine (tagine). Favors were beautifully combined and the dishes were both well cooked - delightful. The service was impeccable as our questions were answered politely and thoroughly, we were cared for, but not hurried. The restaurant was quietly beautiful providing a lovely ambiance. The combination of exquisite food and perfect service was a joy. I wish we had another night in Geneva as would would definitely make an exception to our usual eating "rules" and would go back tomorrow night. The entire experience was one of perfection!
