Finally made it to this charming restaurant! With no prior experience of Lebanese food, we were very glad of the recommendations of the front-of-house server. A previous reviewer described their server as "stern". Ours pitched her involvement perfectly - available enough to answer queries, distant...More

Lovely family restaurant, great atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Above all the food was fabulous. Lebanese food is zingy and fresh and different and having lots of different dishes to share is a fantastic way to try as much as possible.

I had dinner here on my own and felt very welcome. The service was friendly - even down to being given directions to the local off licence to buy beer (they don't serve alcohol) - and the food was delicious. Highly recommended!

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal here while visiting Derry on holiday. Be aware that you need to bring your own wine, but that shouldn't put you off as long as you know. We had a mezze starter, all of which was lovely....More

Lebanon is a small country on the Eastern coast of the Mediterranean. The cuisine tends to be more varied and refined than its Middle Eastern neighbours. Vegetarians will be at home in any Lebanese restaurant as they include many vegetarian healthy options. Close your eyes and pretend you've been transported to another world and back to the Middle East. It's a small oasis walking through the door of Cedar bringing you to an unexpected space. It is a must in any tour of the maiden city. City of culture 2013 A true taste of Lebanon. Open Wednesday-Saturday 5:30-9:30 pm A warm welcome awaits one and all. Available for private parties max 30 people
