This is a very special place! We went there for dinner and enjoyed it a lot. The atmosphere is very nice and special (with a lot of love for details), and they have a beautiful patio. The food was delicious! We had a paste made from red paprika, which was extremely good, and I have never had anything like that... More

Nothing to do with Arabic food. Bad quality ingredients. Burnt oil in the bad tasting falafel. Supermarket homous and the fatoush is lettuce with feta cheese which must be a joke. Can be more honest and say what he can make and not put an imaginary menu. Bad service. Coke is not fizzy seems open in fridge for days. Cheap... More

We spent some of our best evenings in Toledo in this cafe. The food is good, great for the price and the couple that runs it very friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. Can highly recommend,

The aubergine and tomatoes were excellent as was the tea. The host selected the food for us and was very charming, he spoke excellent English. He has a relaxed and laid back attitude to life! We tried to visit the restaurant last night and found it closed. On visiting today we mentioned it to him he seemed surprised then remembered... More

Hard to find healthy and vegetarean food in Spain. That's why when I travel there I always tend to find if there are middle eastern restaurants in the area. We were not disappointed with this one- great food, plenty of veg options, great service, friendly owner, and a very cozy atmosphere with beautiful oriental decor. Highly recommended

What started as just a fleeting pitstop to wash up ended in taking up all our time due to its fascinating didactic and romantic ambience and the enchanting entrance court and Ghalebs hospitality and the music we played, the chess game, the food, the beverages and the great company.. All in all a great reflection and representation of the Golden... More

Fresh food finally! We have been craving some fresh food after a week in Spain. This is the place! We ordered a fatoush and a yoghurt salad and they were delicious. We also ordered falafels and the chicken couscous, way too much for two but it was so tasty we couldn't help but eat it all! Posada El Cristo de... More

We arrived at 12:30 pm and were graciously offered the perfect table by the window with a breeze. It was +30c, and we wanted a cold drink and a snack. Well we were delighted with the hospitality and the food. Husband and wife were shortly visited by family. The humus and falafel may have been some of the best we've... More

This is the best place I've been in Toledo. Physically it's amazing, spiritually it was indescribable . It has the best tea I've drank in years. I'm sure the food is just as good! Ghaleb, the host, is an incredibly special person, his view of life is a must hear. The prophet of Toledo. Don't miss it. It's right across... More

... if you want a cup of tea! We asked for a cup of tea with cold milk. This was to avoid the age-old problem in France, Spain etc of getting hot milk in tea. We got the cold milk ok. But the tea already had sugar stirred into it when it was served. The guy was quite po-faced when... More
