“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2011

Probably the best meal we had this trip into D.F. Very conveniently located near our favorite B&B (Red Tree House) we were delighted with the chicken dishes, hummus, felafel, and baklava.

“Exquisite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2011

If you are going to judge a Lebanese place by its food, then you should evaluate 4 things: 1. Bread, 2. Hummus, 3. Tabbouleh and 4. Falafel. ALL OF THEM, ALL OF THEM are beautifully prepared and are extraordinary delicious. AFTER THIS, it will all depend on your personal tastes and preferences. The place is a bit pricey but it is definitely worth it. They serve shisha, narguile or hookas. The lightning is very friendly, nicely dim and curiously appropriate for both a family and romantic dinner. The decoration is light. Do not expect anything exaggerate. Service is excellent. Please do leave a tip.
