Lebanese food done in a very good modern twistl like Duck sharmawra fr example.
Restaurant was empty at 5pm on Tuesday evening, staff were very polite n professional, menu had 2 main sections starters then mains.
The starters were more than 15 i think from vegetables, meze, cheese, meat & fish starters. I went 4 courgette labneh mint purée n aubergine purée (moutabal) the waitress kindly made it in to 1 dish 1/2 n 1/2. Green beans In tomato sauce was fantastic , amazing sauce ! Ordered white bait sumac chilli yogurt, but these were deep fried in some batter , which I could not eat. They took that straight away from me with no prob.
The main courses were about 5-6 . Went 4 traditional mixed grill which was exactly what it was with little side of grilled veg n garlic n tomato onion dips to go with. Was cooked perfectly well but the lamb was really good.
The restaurant has lovely setting looking out to harbour / bay which is covered n cool with nice sea breeze, good atmosphere with ppl walking by n boat noises. It's a little bit fancy but I went with a vest shorts n bk pack on.
Value wise not cheap starters from 10000-26000 and mains 25000 -39000.

Two things that I did not like was the cutlery and the plates they use.
Wud recommend to anyone whose by the bay n want something actually Lebanese not westernised.

A visit in this modern designed Lebanese restaurant at a warm summer evening is indeed a highlight. It is located between the busy beautifully illuminated avenue and yachting marina were the public go for a stroll. The indoor part of the restaurant very new and realy trendy and the terrace with its nice view is equipped with modern and comfortable furnishings The menue and wine list are striking, the quality is grand and the seafood is just scrumptious. The reception was corteous and the service very professional. Just to sum up, the next visit is on the agenda.
