The food is very tasty and a nice alternative to French cuisine. The restaurant is very small and a bit dingy. Not at all touristy. All good in my opinion but waiting over an hour for food was not. Two of us had the 10 mezze one had the grill add and I made the mistake of ordering the 3 course Byblos. I did not receive my second course before my friends finished their meals. By now it was nearly 10 pm on an 8 pm reservation. I skipped the coffe and dessert altogether. Not sure if this was an off night but the waitress, who was friendly made no apologies. No English spoken which is fine. Just beware the possible interminable wait for your meal.

We had dinner at Le Cedre this summer when visiting Avignon. We had not been there before and did not know what to expect. We chose this restaurant because it was the only Lebanese restaurant close to our hotel.

We were seated at the table outside promptly and were given sufficient time to study the wide variety of dishes the place offers. The menu is rich with variety of Mezza, both vegetarian and containing various kind of meats. Additionally, there are different Kebobs and other Lebanese cuisines as well as delicious desserts. The restaurant also offers gluten free dishes. I chose a vegetarian Meza dish while my wife had a Meza containing chicken. By the time we ordered our food, most of the table outside were filled with customers with previous reservation. It looked like this restaurant is quite popular with locals.

We were quite surprised when We got our food. Each dish was enough to feed at least two persons. Both orders were well prepared and delicious. Needless to say, we could not eat the entire food and since we were staying in a hotel and did not have access to a kitchen, we could not take the leftover. The service was above average considering how crowded the restaurant was. We did have soft drinks but the restaurant also serves variety of wines and beers.

We recommend this restaurant highly. The only negative point was the noise. The tables were close to a street with moderate traffic. We would visit this place again when we return to Avignon.

Had an excellent meal, rice could be better, other than that, the rest was great.
Service was okay, but there were a funny smell when I was there.
Interior design is exotic but looking a bit old.

I've been here twice now and it's always very good. It's always the same being traditional but you know what you're getting and it's especially good for vegetarians. The value and atmosphère are great.
