The presentation of the food is lovely. Authentic humus accompanied by fresh pita bread. The rack of lamb was very tender, perfectly seasoned. We smoked a little apple hookah after finishing our delicious meals. A perfect way to end this exquisite food.

Very nice atmosphere, decent service, great food.

I especially like dining with a selection of small dishes (hummus, baba ghanoush, etc.)

There are tables inside and on the side-walk. The latter are pet-friendly.

Water pipes are available as well.

I stumbled upon this restaurant by coincidence while wandering around Insurgentes and didn't expect too much initially. However, I was astonished by the authentic menu, fresh and delicious taste and lamb meat of high quality. The freshly prepared mint lemonade itself is a reason to go here. Last year I visited Lebanon and having the food there in mind I can say that El Jamil serves food which is on par with the restaurants of Beirut. After a savory dinner you can relax and try their traditional narghile as you'd expect it in any Arabic speaking country.

Authentic lebanese food from a tourist from Lebanon. The best lebanese food and atmosphere you can find in mexico city. A must visit if you are in the area

I had a craving for hummus and Lebanese food so decided to try this place in La Condesa after having passed by it several times.
It was sort of disappointing... Street food in Beirut and overall Lebanon outrates by far the food at this place, so since I was expecting a good if not great Lebanse meal, I got only a mediocre one. So even it is not an expensive place, it results pricey taking in account the ordinay (poor) food you get. I guess the staff service is the best thing at this place, no complaints about it.
