I´m really in love L'ybane restaurant in Nice. Simply: food is always so good, made with tender touch and passionate. And you are always welcome. Lebanese food is very easy. Don´t be afraid. Tapas are tasty - especially hummus. Restaurant is little expensive but worth for the money...

Excellent meal of several small dishes that could be shared between friends. Eating outside was comfortable in October with a heater.

We went for a dinner with my husband in one night cause someone recommended it to us. The staff was nice and smiling. The food tasty! Now about the things I didn't liked: 1. Wrong designed menu!. No pictures in, and is difficult to understand what are you ordering if you don't have idea of libanese food, and the names... More

We have been here three times during the last year and have had different types of meze's each time. The food is good and the waiter is fast, service minded and really makes you feel welcome.

My wife and I decided to have a change of cuisine and opted for this middle eastern restaurant as it was close to our apartment. We were sat at an outside table in pleasant surroundings on a not too busy road. The service was efficient if not overly friendly. We decided on 6 tapas to share and a glass of... More

Saw this place while walking down from Place Massena to our hotel.... the menu looked attractive... but the food turned out to be even better.... we ordered for Chicken shawarma... skewer lamb....seafood spaghetti.... each of the items were delicious...cooked to perfection ...served in style...by an ever attentive staff....one extremely satisfying meal of our tour.

Both my girlfriend and I got tapas dishes, which we thought would be their specialties, however, the food was quite poor and too expensive, given the quality. To top it off, the waiters seemed very uinterested and the service was poor. Would not recommend the place.

We were extremely tired of the tourist traps and their greasy pizzas and sandwiches, watery salads, sour wine and over-prized beer. Imagine our happiness when we realized the nice little place with the nice locals eating outside, actually served Arab food which is a favourite and very seldom disappoints. We took the meze, three small dishes each, which turned out... More

Just ate there and had the plates with lamb skewers, hummus, falafel and salad. Delicious in every way; a perfect lunch. Service was also good and friendly.
