We've dined here a number of times over the years and have always had excellent food at reasonable prices in a charming bistro atmosphere. Probably the best Lebanese food I've had around the world. Friendly owner and server. Good Lebanese wines.

I've not had much luck finding restaurants in Paris that serve good non-French cuisine. It's not fine dining here, but the food is very tasty, and it makes a pleasant change if you are on holiday and dining out at least twice a day. I chose a very good bottle of Beaujolais to accompany the food. Served slightly chilled and... More

The hummus was wonderful! I loved the presentation, aroma, taste and the bread served with the hummus! Try it. You'll like it, if you like hummus that is! I had the lamb kabob which was very tasty as well. It is a bit tucked away which makes it a most pleasant place to dine! Give it a try and see... More

I hadn't been here in quite a while (2-3 years) but was pleased to see that it was still the same charming place. Excellent mezze (lots of small dishes put on table at same time), inc. vegetarian choice, or smaller "plates" of the same. They also do typical Lebanese grilled meat dishes. The restaurant is cozy and comfortable - decent-sized... More

I was sick all night after a dinner at the Saidoune. This morning, I'm fine so this was certainly connected to the food. The service was too long. Then we realized afterwards that the waiter made us pay 9 additional euros. We do not recommend the Saidoune.

Found this restaurant because I wanted to remember the taste of Lebanese food after many years break and wasn't disappointed. Nice and fresh starters , succulent meats for the main and delightful homemade deserts. 4 out of 5 because the mains came barely warm and the service could have been more involved to provide a better general atmosphere

We ate dinner at Saidoune and were not disappointed. Everything we ate was tasty and nicely presented. The lamb dish was particularly good and was cooked to perfection. Service was friendly and unobtrusive. There is plenty of choice in this neighborhood and I would recommend a visit here.

My husband and I came to Paris for our honeymoon. Looking for a little break from French food we decided to give this restaurant a try...WOW! Everything we tried (appetizers, dinner, dessert) was spectacular! My husband has been to Lebanon and said this is as good or better than the food he had there. I would highly recommend the mezze...
