Four of us went and enjoyed a good meal but paid $100 for lunch, not including drinks. If you don't mind paying for it, the food is good and the staff is friendly.

El Mayor was recommended to us when we first came to Windsor. We tried it out and fell in love. The staff was very friendly and fast. The food is delicious. I must warn you that if you order the family appetizer and an entree, be very hungry. It is a great place.

I love their fattoush salad with cucumbers, tomatoes and pita bits and mixed fresh herbs. It is a meal in itself but I also order the Chicken shawarma. A nice restaurant with good service and excellent dishes

El Mayor is a traditional Lebanese cuisine. Their food is freshly prepared and is very tasty. My favourite is the hummus. The desserts are amazing. Definitely worth your time.

Group of 5 dining on a weeknight. Great service. Food is exquisite and the portions are large so be careful. We had everything from fries, baklava, eggplant salad, greek salad to our mains: red snapper, silver bass, shawarma plate. Every bite was sumptuous. For those of us who ordered the fish, we were surprised when the plate came with TWO... More

One of our 3 favourite locations for lebanese food in Windsor. Always excellent food & service. Food is always fresh with large portions. Love their Garlic sauce, Humous & Fattoush salad. My favourite dush is their Shish Twook & white rice.

This is my go to place for Lebanese food in Windsor. It's family owned and it feels like family when you go. I usually get the grill plater.

El mayor is a very good Arabic resteraunt. In the summer time I highly recommend the fresh lemonade they serve, and they also have the best baklava in town. A little pricey compared to other Arabic resteraunts.

Came here for lunch after not coming for years. Thought I would give it a try. Food was good and very reasonably priced. The hummus is awesome! Service was efficient and professional and friendly. Very nicely decorated restaurant. Lots of good improvements since I was here last. Will definitely return to try yet another dish!
