Nice large restaurant located in Nicosia old town with tables outside too. I tasted a typical Lebanese meze. Everything was fresh and tasty. Lebanese red wine "Le Prieuré" ( Chateau Ksara Winery ) perfectly matching the food. Very nice atmosphere with belly dance show. Very good prices. Excellent choice. For sure a place to be back on my next trip... More

I chose this place for dinner with a friend, and we were treated to great Lebanese food, an excellent shisha, and a nice bellydance show on top of everything.

I just finished lunch. We have waited for more than an hour to get a mixed grill, and more than 30 mins for a humus. And the restaurant wasn't full. I may return, but only if i have plenty of time to waist and really missed lebanese food.

We ordered the so-called Meze and so many varied dishes came with all the tastes of Lebanon! They were all delicious and the price was also extremely good! Will definitely be going back!

His Lebanese restaurant offers an authentic experience with tasty treats, the biggest variety of water pipes, and friendly waiters. If you want to enjoy the real vibe of the town, watch the locals with a nargille and... More

I visited this restaurant some years ago and my friends and I came across it yesterday when we visited the capital. Great service, mouthwatering hummus, babaganoush, taboulleh and falafel together with fresh Arabic bread, just has I remembered it before. My friends loved it! We were too early so we missed out on the belly dancers which was unfortunate but... More
