Returned to Cedar following a good first experience two weeks ago. Taken aback immediately on arrival by overfamiliar, tactless and even offensive comments made by the senior member of the front of house staff. The food did not disappoint but a bad taste was left in the mouth. I do not anticipate a return to Cedar.

We always have the pleasure of enjoying a great meal at Cedar. The food is fantabulous and it is certainly different from the overwhelming majority of local restaurants. As a Lebanese, I strongly recommend Cedar. There s no doubt it is one of the best restaurants in Derry.

Once again this long overdue visit to Cedar Taste of Lebanon was equally as delightful as before - this time I took the opportunity to treat my daughter Gilz (who was home for a few weeks from France) to something a little different. She was bowled over by the marinaded lamb served on an almond rice bed, and just as an extra treat, Bernadette served some home made thinly sliced potato chips. I enjoyed the varied Mezza, as per usual. Warm friendly service in a twinkling, jingle jangly environment - you feel you are on holiday in some exotic location - just walk in off Carlisle Road and you are transported!! Highly recommended :-) 5 star

Visited on a friday evening,very small premesis but that added to the intimate atmosphere. the waitress was lovely,very helpful and attentive. tried the mezza,would definitely recommend but in comparison to other lebanese restaurants i found the portions a bit on the small side.
lovely food,reasonably priced in a great location-an absolute must!
