Large Lebanese restaurant with large openable windows facing Kennedy Street. We enjoyed our mixed grill (with a delicious spicy sauce), flat bread and hommus. With a beer, a glass of wine and an espresso, the bill for two came to $87. Friendly service.

Had Valentine's day dinner here with my partner last week. Candle on the table added to the atmosphere. We shared a couple of entrees, then the chicken tagine for main and cheesecake for dessert. All wonderful.
