A great location, with delicious food. As always i like medeterian food and Farouge is one of them. I recommend this place but the pice is way too high, but that is also normal in Helsinki.

Just a small correction. There's no such thing as "Lebanese coffee". Any type of coffee served in a tiny cup with cardamon is just another version of either Turkish coffee or Arabic coffee. You can't really brand them as "lebanese coffee" or "syrian coffee" or "jordanian coffee" or "egyptian coffee" ....etc. Historically, only the Turkish coffee and Arabic coffee are... More

While visiting Helsinki I went to Farouge twice in the 10 days we were there and both times the food was excellent and our server was very friendly. Our friends that took us there are locals so it was on their recommendation. The food is very similar to Greek or Mediterranean cuisine. I would suggest to start with the mezze... More

Sat for couples' dinner in Farouge early December. Much enjoyed the meze for four people (at 32€ each), yet the service was a bit too technical of an effort. The resto was full, so I'll give it a break.

We visited the restaurant on last Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was almost empty but they had a lot of reservations for later hours. We were not made feel welcome since we hadn't made a reservation. However, a table was found. I paid attention to the shabby and stained chairs. Something you don't expect from a restaurant of this price level.... More

I have visited this restaurant on many occations and have enjoyed it everytime. Weather or not it was for lunch or dinner all the food has been perfect. You should try the small Meze for starter and the finnish of with some of the grilled dishes like Shish Taook. They have also a good selection of lebanese wines. Worth the... More

Farouge has a lebanese menu, we liked the food. It was not very spicy but tasty, you could taste garlic in your mouth still the next day. The service was great and friendly, also the restaurant itself is comfortable. Might be wise to have a reservation at least in the evenings. Recommend.
