First of all - the quality of the provided food (arab appetizer and desert, main courses fish/chicken) was really good, but the seating was very disappointing. The restaurant has 2 floors, in the first floor you have some couches where local people smoke waterpipes and drink tea. In the second floor there are "normal tables" with chairs. After a local...
