“Worst place in Lausanne”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

One of the worst places one can go to in Lausanne.
Its overpriced and over rated. The staff is unhelpful and rush through suggestions and ill-advise.
They messed up the bill. Finally, they even messed up the take-away order.
There are better places in Lausanne. We felt cheated. This has happened twice. Cheating customers seems to be their business model.

“Traditional but Expensive”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

i went there on a date; and was happy to showcase my country's cuisine. we started by a tabboule salad, couple cold and hot mezze. food was excellent to be honest. really felt like home. in addition to that, the atmosphere is pretty nice too. staff is courteous and professional; was nice to have couple people to speak arabic to! i even found Lebanese beer, which was great. for the main course we had grilled lamb chops, succulent. however, although having a great experience; it came a bit expensive, around 250 Swiss francs for shared salad and 4 mezza plates, 2 main courses, water and couple beers.
overall good experience

“Authentic food, quick service”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Went here with a large group. The food was good and authentic, and the place has a nice casual atmosphere.
Bit surprised that next table diners brought their dog with them.

Dear Sir,
I understand from your comments that you had great food and appreciated the atmosphere. Well thank you for your nice and encouraging words.
However, concerning the dog, this is not Dubai or any place in the middle east but Switzerland. Dogs are friendly and accepted in most restaurants and hotels.
Please advise next time you visit us that you are not an animal friendly and we will definitely seat you in another place where you will feel more comfortable, happy and relaxed.
Looking forward to welcoming you again.
Best regards,

“Food fine but expensive. Don't get fooled by their menus.”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Fine food but absolutely no transparency on orders with menus.
Be very careful when ordering the menus. They let you think that ordering menus will save you a lot of money compared to ordering separate dishes. In fact if you take the mezzé menu, you'll get for each menu one piece of hot starter (ex. 1 kebbé, 1 sambousek) while with the à la carte, the plate contains 4 pieces. Better order the plates, at least you know what you expect to get.
Above all, we had two friendly guys serving and a lady who was really unfriendly.

“Perfectly Acceptable, but where's the Lebanese Coffee!?”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We ate the OBeirut Menu (68.-pp, certainly not expensive by Swiss standards) and enjoyed the plentiful food (potatoes were to die for!). Excellent Lebanese wine on offer. Service was warm and friendly if not spectacular. Only disappointment was not having proper Lebanese coffee with dessert! Rectify that and it may be a five-star place.
