Description: This is a wonderful little restaurant ideal fro brunch or a wonderfully varied lunch. Souk el Tayeb started as a farmers market in 2004, and now offers a range of delicious regional Lebanese dishes and desserts, as well as preserves, jams and sweets that can be bought in the restaurant. The concept is to offer fresh, organic food, with dishes changing weekly, so that one can savour different dishes from around Lebanon. Brunch is offered on Saturday, and during the week a wonderful lunch buffet is offered at a set price, including main courses, appetizers and salads, as well as desserts.The food is nothing short of delicious and the service impeccable and very friendly. The space is light and laid back, with a mixed crowd of lunching ladies, young professionals and some business men, all seamlessly blending in together. There is also a little outside space with a couple of tables.

Tawlet’s buffets are ideal for sampling a range of Lebanese food from a specific region which changes daily. All of the dishes are fresh and are regularly replenished so the food isn’t left hanging around for ages. Excellent for vegetarians.

This is one of my favorite places in town. Always an exciting buffet with generous items and new dishes. The staff is great and the cooks serve you with a huge smile, as if they've cooked for their own children. Try their private dinners if you are a group of thirty five and more. My friends and I did a couple of months ago and it was one of our most memorable group dinners.
