I visited with a group of about 10 other friends, mostly vegetarian. This place seemed to be one of very few vegetarian options that wasn't pizza or pasta on a Sunday evening. The food was amazing, so much flavour! Also the prices were very reasonable. The owner was very friendly and had a good sense of humour. Would defiantly revisit... More

We went to Alounak because of the good reviews and were not at all disappointed. The restaurant manager was a lovely, gentle man and gracious host. The decor was beautiful and atmospheric, with a lot of care having gone into it. Both my wife and I had lamb dishes, hers with cous cous and mine with rice. Very much a... More

We visited here on Sun night just before 8pm and we did think of going somewhere else as we were the first diners but we were so pleased that we did go in-the owner who is waiter and chef took the time to make us feel welcome. At no time did we feel deserted nor that we were hovered over.... More

We almost arrived before the restaurant closed but they still welcomed us and we got good vegan food, a good conversation with the owner. So what do we need more than to have a good night? Food, drink and conversation. We got all that there. Thanks

A thoroughly enjoyable evening, talking to the owner and tasting good authentic food. Some of the recipes had been passed down from his great grandmother. A real experience.

This small restaurant tucked away from the main town ideal for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters. The menu was good. I had humous and the ratitouli with potatoes (special offer for vegans - starter and main course for 13 euros) and my friend had a lamb curry. Dishes are served piping hot by the friendly and welcoming owner. It was... More

Friendly welcoming owner. We both had the mezze starter as a main. Portions don't look enormous but very filling and tasty. Well presented.

Just when we were to give up finding a place to take our vegan daughter, we found this gem serving a range of delicious middle-eastern food. There was meat or fish, vegetarian or vegan with some great vegan mezze. The owner is charming and kind, we will definitely be back.

The service is always excellent at this owner-operated restaurant. Whether you be vegetarian, vegan, or a diner who eats meat, there is something for everyone. The atmosphere is very peaceful and warm. The food is delicious and unforgettable!
