Food and ambience

Lebanese, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Vegetarian Friendly, Vegan Options
Special Occasion Dining, Romantic, Groups, Business meetings
Our chefs are passionate about food and are dedicated to creating delicious, mouth watering Middle Eastern dishes for you to enjoy. If you have never experienced this type of food before (often referred to as 'Lebanese' food), it is found in the regions of Lebanon, Syria and Jordan but with some Mediterranean influences too. It is a little like the Spanish tapas style of eating where you enjoy several dishes at a time and there is something for everyone; meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike.
