This is such a special place in a special seaside town. I recently went to lunch with friends here and loved it! It's great for a fresh oversized salad!! Their hummus is delish and served with warm pita, love!! My friends both got the gyros and loved them! True Mediterranean food on the North Shore! Support local family owned businesses!!!... More

For excellent Lebanese cuisine in a stylish black & white & grey surroundings, Le Bistro is the place. Welcomed cheerily by the ever-smiling proprietor and fresh flowers at each table, you are seated at either a high top, booth or table. Start, or end, with a decent glass of wine and the usual hommus, or the warm Foule -- a... More

I always get the falafel. Very pleasant and clean. Fresh food, thoughtfully prepared. Friendly service. Reasonable prices. I think it's a Lebanese restaurant, but am not sure.

Whether for lunch or dinner, this long time Marblehead spot offers personal service and delicious Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes. I love their light and fluffy falafel, hummus and salads. But my friend swears by their chicken quesadilla, so there's something for everyone. A friendly spot for sure.

My wife has been trying to get me to eat here for years. I thought it would be a faux french foofoo restaurant. Not at all. It is a wonderful little, quiet place with Mediterranean specialties. While the menu is somewhat limited, our food was wonderful. It was a quiet night with a fine bottle of wine. The host was... More

Refreshing change from the other local restaurants! Attentive service, casual atmosphere. Healthy dinner choices of meat kebabs and salads. Does not have a full bar, wine and beer only. Located in the "5 Corners" area of Marblehead, quiet place where it's nice to have a conversation without shouting!

I have been here a number of times. The food was great until the last time I went this past summer. I ordered a lamb dish, which is one of their specialties and was truly disappointed. There was so much gristle that I spent more time removing it than enjoying the meeting with a very close friend. I know this... More

We eat here once or twice a month. Food is reliably good; proprietor is a delight, and genuinely cares about your enjoyment of the meal. Combination Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food; nice beer and wine menu. Uniquely excellent baba ghanouj. Moderate prices. Highly recommended.

Delicious Fattoush salad with subtle lemon dressing. Tasty kibble 'meatballs'. Everything was fresh and nicely presented. The service was attentive and friendly.

Everything was delicious. The Tabbouleh was so fresh, lacking in resemblance from the stuff you get at the grocery store. I recommend the combo plate to get a taste of everything. I will be going back again.
