Really tasty middle eastern dips were the highlight for us at this intimate little spot.The hummus we had was very good, but the Muhamarra (walnut red pepper dip) was outstanding.We also shared garlic potatoes and Kafta which we enjoyed as well. As another reviewer noted, the pita wasn't the tastiest, but maybe that is just so you get the full... More

Four of us greatly enjoyed our dinner together there. The service was attentive and friendly, the food was outstanding and the wine well complimented the meal. We do not often eat Middle Eastern food but found this to be delicious and different from our normal fare. We really enjoyed the flavorful foods, the warm hospitality and will definitely return we...

Very good and authentic Middle Eastern food. Not a huge place and not fine dining atmosphere, but the food was really good. Very friendly personal service and the owner/chef came out to greet us and socialize when he had the chance. Only negative was that every time the door opened, there was a blast of cold air that came in... More

Great little place with a warm atmosphere and delicious Lebanese cuisine. Best for max four people or less eating together (we were 8 and I felt like we dominated the room too much) but this is hidden pearl of a restaurant.

This very tiny low-ceilinged place seems to attract students (there's a large campus in the area). That's great for some. But when they noisily congregate here, forget about any notion of a pleasant meal. The din is downright deafening. As for the service, it's earnest enough but appears to be easily overwhelmed. The food itself is satisfactory but not really... More

Best Lebanese place in downtown Montreal. Forget all the shawarma joints and try the different cold and hot mezza (appetizers) at this place, you won't regret it. Closest thing to what you eat in Beirut and with reasonable prices.

The food was outstanding with generous portions. The hummus was excellent. We ordered for carryout and sat in the restaurant to wait for our food & the staff still provided us with a pitcher of water and refused the offer of a tip.

We are fans of Lebanese food and were looking for a place to eat in Montreal one night, when I remembered having heard good things about this place. It was all true! This is a tiny basement restaurant with tables inside, and outside at street level. It was a hot evening so we sat outside. Everything looked so good that... More

We waited over an hour for our food and we should've left long before that. We assumed that as every table around us got their food that ours would be coming out soon. But that wasn't the case. Not only did we have to flag down the wait staff several times to ask where was our food, they never bothered... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
