Good food in lush surroundings. The Music is OK, but I wouldn't go for the music. The atmosphere is good, by rather formal. Everything from the glasses to cutlery, plates etc... are chosen with care.

This is a good restaurant not cheap . The main point is that you have to take the full menu of the restaurant even if you don't want ! They have Chicha and the crew is friendly

Lebanese famous mezze, big varieties and all you can eat, best place for foreigners to experience traditional and famous Lebanese dining. however, so many waiters and so many hands, so rush serving everything though they aren't busy, only few tables during the Lunch hour and not very professional service, hardly can explain the ingredients well and poker faces, don't think...
