The Lighthouse was very accommodating during our visit. They set up a table for 17 people by the water on the lower deck so we could enjoy the evening breeze. The food was very good and fast, considering the size of our party. Everything came...More

Very good food but the service takes forever. Make sure you order all the course together and tell them to bring them as they are ready. The food is very nice. The spicy wings and Assiette platter a must.

they changed the menu. No more Libian mezes more of a western taste now. Western prices as well, but they served the biggest lobster ever. About 30 cm in lenght. Well done and with nice sause. Good place to go since Alex's is closed
