Fairly new restaurant (5 months as of March 2015) offering authentic Lebanese food in a warm and casual atmosphere. The mellow arabic music softly playing in the background also adds to the character of the place.
Have the the lemonade (citronnade à la libanaise) and you won't be disappointed. It is very refreshing and tastes delicious. The Phoenician mixed platter offers a nice variety of mezze if you would like to try different items (the kibbeh is very good). The mixed grill is very well seasoned and the meat is very tender. The chicken skewer and the beef shawarma were my favorite. Don't skip dessert, the mouhalabieh and the baklava are very good.
There is more space between tables than you usually find in restaurants in Paris and I hope this does not change once the restaurant becomes more popular. The service is friendly and the owner walks around and engages in friendly conversation with the patrons. He is also very accommodating with substitutions toward your tastes and preferences.
The restaurant (open Tue-Sat 12:00-22:00) is located in a one-way narrow street (enter going north on Avenue Ledru Rollin) with no parking (see pics) so, if driving, you should look for parking elsewhere. The advantage is that this offers a quiet setting in an area that can get very busy at times. This restaurant serves alcohol, takes reservations, does take-away and caters at private events.
