Great place to hang out, yummy food and really pretty decor, especially inside. The food is traditional Lebanese but has a little twist so it's definitely worth a try.

With my wife we tested both Lebanese and Armenian food. It was really awesome. Very specific to the area, especially with a bottle of Almaza.

This was lebanese soul food at its finest.. Modest, homely place serving only one type of red wine and one type of white fine (both of which were fortunately, excellent).. Food was great.. definitely worth a visit...

I like the restaurant and mood at Leila in Verdun! Great Lebanese mezzah and food! from tabbouleh to kebbeh..etc make sure to try it at least once Also the lebanese sweets are a must! But I have to say that the portions are a bit small

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.

Thank a_night_here
