My sister, brother in law and I were staying in an apartment across from this restaurant. We ordered two of the tasting menus for the three of us which had more dips than we were able to eat. I live in LA and have Lebanese food AT LEAST once per week. My sister and brother in law live in Tel Aviv so they eat this type of cuisine regularly. The food was very good and since we weren't able to finish we asked to bring the dips home (across the alley) with us. The waiter/owner said "we were rude for asking and that is NEVER done." None of us in all of our world travels had ever experienced this. He did NOT give us our dips to take with us.

My family and I dined at D'une Rive a L'Autre on Tuesday night. We arrived perhaps a little too early for dinner in Provence but we had had a long day. We are familiar with Lebanese food from our home in NYC. The food was better than any we had ever had because the ingredients here are fresher and the chefs at this restaurant are brilliant. The woman who served us was professional and patient (we had trouble translating the French into dishes we knew but she helped us). Simply the best meal we have had on our trip. We will return Thank you D'une Rive a L'Autre!

My partner and I adore Lebanese food and although D'une Rive a L'Autre took a bit of tracking down (it is very tucked away) it was worth hunting out. Other people have complained about the service but we certainly found nothing amiss. I ordered tabbouleh which was excellent, very little bulgar and lots and lots of chopped herbs, followed by falafel that were excellent, nothing like the ones I make at home and which keep falling to bits. The Rose de Cassis was an excellent wine to accompany this, especially as the evening was very hot - too hot to eat outside - and it is a bit expensive, but then everything in Cassis is.

We were so looking forward to having a meal in France that was not "French". We love different cuisines and were excited to eat at le D'Une Rive a L'Autre. Our server was so friendly and lovely and very helpful. The cold Meze's were very good, but they did not bring any "pita". When we asked for it, they brought it, and it was cold and didn't seem fresh. The wait for the "hot" food was quite long, and we sat for a long while with the dirty dishes on the table. When the "hot" food did come it was just okay. We were disappointed with the quality, and the service was slow. My daughter and I had sat for so long that we ended up leaving before the bill was paid, as it took a long time to even pay the bill. My husband waited to pay the bill and met us after. I want to say the food was better than average, but because of the entire experience, I just can't give them a "very good". I would not return.

We were looking forward to this restaurant given that we've had several evenings of the standard mediterranean fare. Things started well as the menu looked quite enticing and we are very accustomed to Lebanese food. From there it all went downhill. The quality was less than average and a bit underwhelming. The service was almost non-existent. Our dishes were never cleared, we waited and waited to be served and then at the end when we wanted to pay the server would clear one to two plates at a time, bring them inside to clean them off and then come back to repeat the same process. We felt the wine was overprices, €22 for a 1/2 bottle of local Cassis Rose? We won't be returning here.

Bonsoir mr Alex
Vos commentaires concernant votre soirée dans notre établissement nous sont incompréhensibles.
Nous sommes un établissement répertorié dans les restaurants de qualité avec une traçabilité limpide des produits, choisis de qualité supérieure, et toujours très frais .
Vous nous avez dit bien connaître la cuisine grecque. La cuisine libanaise est particulièrement renommée, mais peut être attendiez vous, en fait, une cuisine grecque!
Comme toujours dans ces circonstances lorsque les nombreux petits plats du mezze se vident totalement, nous en sommes heureux. C'est une reconnaissance appréciée de tous cuisiniers.
C'est ce qui s'est passé ce soir là, à votre table!! Alors??
Vous souhaitiez un verre de Vin. Vous avez demandé à le goûter, ce qui a été fait dans un verre destiné à cela.
Entre vin libanais et vin français, vous avez choisi. Pourquoi critiquez vous votre choix?
Une dernière chose, il semble que vous êtes insensible à la gentillesse, le" service inexistant" suscite notre totale incompréhension. Monsieur , je vous conseille de ne jamais voyager au Liban,vous seriez dans l'impossibilité d'en apprécier toute la convivialité . J'en suis désolé pour vous.
