I've been here several times. The meals are really good and they have a menu with various choices. From falafel to several type of tajine. They got also some vegetarian dishes. Everything very good and served with friendly attitude. If interested, after meal time it is possible to drink a nice mint tee (or something else if you want) while... More

Friendly waitresses but we waited a long time to get served. First off, we weren't given menus until after drinks were ordered (20mins) and then we waited a long time for our order to be taken (10 mins). And it wasn't a crowded night. The food was ok- we had the vege table, falafel, and hummus tahini app- between the... More

I had no expectations about Mediterranean food before we went to Ben'z. We were with the whole family, including my grandmother, but this was no issue for the staff. We received a friendly welcome. my sister was unable to eat solid food, so the staff made sure to keep us up to date on what was edible for her and... More

The staff in this restaurant are seriously friendly and attentive, making for a very pleasant experience. We opted for a classic style of menu which included several different courses from starters to dessert. Each of us took a different food base- seafood, chicken, vegetarian. Ouzo shots were included ! The decor is beautiful with huge diaphanous curtains billowing around and... More

We went here on the recommendation of a local Persian friend. The atmosphere was welcoming, with very friendly staff. The menu is more pan-Mediterranean. We had hummus, a tagine, and a vegetarian tafel. Both were generous portions and were good, but they lacked the zing -- Lemon? Garlic? Mint? -- that we usually love about Mediterranean dishes. But they work... More

Great food and service, we didn't choose from the menu but let the waitress decide. The restaurant is not big and looks very nice, beautifull decoration and suitable music. Dining inside a 'tent' on comfortable benches or pillows. A real middle eastern vibe.

If you're hungry and want great-tasting Middellandse food. the ambiance and decor of the restaurant is amazing. this is a good place to go. They have an extensive menu and if you don't see or know what you want, they'll ask you questions to help identify the best choice and they'll cook up whatever you want. They have...

We started by sharing a hot and a cold meze. Both were boring. For a main course I ordered a lamb tajine and my wife the halibut. The halibut was really oily and unpleasant so we didn't eat it. The lamb was OK, albeit a little too much salt. I certainly won't go back.

Nice place for Mediterranean food. And you can have a tabacco-free waterpipe for dessert.
