What a wonderful place. I counted: it seats 22 people. The food is amazing and the service is very kind and homey. it is just a tiny place on a residential street. You feel like you are eating at your grandmother's home. The food is Middle Eastern and affordable, although not cheap. I had a lamb shank and it was... More

Run by a wonderful lady(owner) Very simple decor,quite small,but great cooked home food. Could be very tight for large groups.Sometimes food on the menu might not be served ,as she depends on certain ingredients from Libya.Please enquire when reserving.

Excellent restaurant with delicious authentic middle eastern food. Try the meze plater. I loved the molokheya (type of spinach with chicken and lemon - most probably the only restaurant that cooks it in Geneva)) - DELICIOUS!!! The owner goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy. Informal sitting in a nice terrace under the beautiful old fig tree!... More

I can only join to all the guest who gave positive reviews. It is my new favorite place in Geneva. Wonderful home cooked middle eastern dishes and warm welcome and professional service by the owner have left a very positive impression. The ambiance is unpretentious and homely, so I would say this place is perfect for a laid-back lunch or... More

Restaurant is very good. The cuisine as well but a little too expensive and they didn't take card at the time we ate there... The location is really sweet and interpreting. You can eat beneath a real "figuier" in the summer time!

I could not imagine a small wooden house in the middle of a range of big, tall, squared buildings. The lebanese food is simply delicious, the beer actually drinkable and cold, the owner very nice and friendly. Many vegetarian options, obviously, but also food for meat-eaters. It is definitely not cheap, but Geneva is not a cheap place, after all.... More
