My review is about the branch at Zaituna Bay, where I was twice, on October 31 and on November 3, with colleagues. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The location is very nice, facing the bay, and there is the possibility to eat outside, which is great. However we had 2 completely different experiences : the first time everything... More

I always think of Leila as fusion Arabic food... Their own take on classics (it's the only place I eat fattoush), plus very well done grills and desserts. Good for a big group or family. The place is cute and welcoming and stylish! Good shisha too. Great place to bring friends from overseas and avoid the tourist traps... Great service.

If you are at ABC Dbayeh and want to have lunch, do not think about twice, Leila is the place to go. The food is just delicious, the hommos, the garlic potatoes, the chicken liver, the makanik (lebanese sausages), the galic labneh (lebanese yogurt)... Do not forget to try the manti, an armenian dish that Leila prepares in a wonderful... More

Have eaten numerous times in the ABC Mall and once in the Verdun restaurants of Leila and have always had a positive experience. Excellent food and friendly service. Authentic Lebanese cuisine, well-worth trying. On weekends and holidays, it can get crowded, so expect to wait if this is the case. However, I beleive that waiting is usually good sign. Not... More

We visited Leila before, and we really like the theme of the restaurant and the service but I think food was much better before. It is still good Lebanese food but it used to be great.

I visit this place very often. It offers a revisited lebanese cuisine. Try the pesto ras asfour and chicken osmalliyi very original ideas! You wont eat it elsewhere!
