The only thing that was delicious was some artichokes with broad beans. The rest, that was a falafel and a chicken shawarma were poor. The place decor is average too. I've been in much better Lebanese restaurants.

The restaurant is a small place in the heart of La Condesa, with very authentic libanese food, and great service. You must try the Jocoque Seco.

The place is very nice, right in the heart of La Condesa. The food was great and so was the service. The Jocoque Seco is just perfect.

We had a simple meal here, and found the menu much to our liking with salads and soups and very good wine by the glass. The thing we wanted to try but were too faint hearted was the hooka.

Easy to explore either on bike or foot, Condesa offers
a great variety of activities and places to visit
while admiring its neo-colonial architecture. Diverse
restaurants vary from regional to global along its
streets, while local bars even let you craft your own
beer. The urban yet relaxing vibe let visitors cycle
or stroll on the Amsterdam Circuit.
