They have jazz nights, a wide range of food and a lovely garden to hang with friends or have an intimate night. Food is divine :)

Excellent Jazz band on Friday night, with fantastic food and drinks. The atmosphere was relaxed, people were dancing, eating, drinking and having great fun. The old Gemayzeh house has been fully renovated and decorated in a modern and trendy way, very nice place, to discover. The waiters and owners are extremely friendly, helpful, and they are always ready to go... More

Before you go, you have to consider that this restaurant is upscale and expensive. However, food is just fantastic, all fresh and homemade even the smoked salmon and the Foie gras! The service is very personal and the manager (owner?) Salim is always around to comment on the food and how it is prepared by the chef. The seating is... More

This restaurant is set in an old traditional Lebanese house. The place is great!! It is not just the selection of wine, and nice platters, it is the service that makes it so good. The owner is always there, friendly as ever, welcoming every client, and taking them on a tour to the cellar. From special requests to assisting you... More

Was taken by surprise by this place.The whole setting is nice, the music is loud enough to converse normally, the wine list goes great with the delicious food, the whole user experience is 9/10 (nothing is perfect).I'd recommend it greatly.

Thank Rony A
