Totally loved the Lebanese cuisine and they so graciously hosted ours and a friend's 5 kids. Very good & fresh food and we got to enjoy the dancing fountains from the terrace! There is something for everyone here. Highly recommended.

This Lebanese restaurant has a great atmosphere. We have tried multiple dishes that were simply amazing and had a good price at the same time. Above all I need to highlight the view, which is a definite unique selling point of the restaurant :)

Very nicely placed when one wants to enjoy a meal with a view. Very good and professional service. All dishes very nicely prepared and served. Too much shisha that makes eating not very pleasant.

This is sits directly in front of the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain, and offers an absolutely breath taking view. With the water fountain running periodically, you can’t ask for a better seating and show. We came here for the sheesha (hookah), and left...More
