yesterday I had dinner at this cozy Mediterranean Restaurant, it offers very delicious food, hard to tell which dish was the tastiest since the whole dishes were delicious. the service was tremendous and on top f that, the owner greeted us and he personally supervised...the service. I strongly recommended it for anyone visiting Madrid, looking for quality and taste. just give it a try and will not regret it.More

The ambient of the restaurant is a little bit sinister. The waiters are careless and they serve the food and the wine badly. The worst is the food. Couscous is overcooked with low quality ingredients (we ordered chicken couscous, the chicken had a miserable quality)....The entries are clearly stored in the freeze and microwaved before serving and so on. Finally the quality/price relation was also bad. Overall an experience to forget.More

After my trip to the Middle East, I have been craving this food! It did not disappoint! I hear they have belly dancers on Saturdays!

When you arrive at a restaurant at 9:30 pm and it is completely empty it makes you wonder. There were great reviews so we decided to stay and give it a chance. The meze we ordered was good although we thought the humus plate was...small and we had to order a second one. The main dishes we felt were expensive, 20 EUR + Overall good food. We had a lamb couscous and a tajine. The lamb didn't taste much like lamb and the couscous was not memorable. Ok. Tajine ok. My conclusion is that is not a place I would like to return.More

We have lived and travelled through the Middle East and enjoy Lebanese food. The quality of this food was high: wonderful smokey muttabal, excellent kibbe, and the kebabs were moist and tasty with a well balanced garlic mayo. The other dishes were all good, although...the vine leaves served too cold. Service was first class. We booked through The Fork and had a very worthwhile deduction. Without it I think that the price would be a little high, but with the offer the food was good value. In summary, high quality Lebanese food and service. We will definitely return.More

Having been to Syria and Lebanon several times, I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is authentic. The device is attentive. It's child friendly. Loved it and we will return!

I have had Syrian/Lebanese meals in Mayfair, London and they were not as expensive as this! If the location was in Barrio Salamanca they might get away with it it but the location, off Principe de Vergara is quite rough. The food is very good...but over priced. How can they charge €16 for a plate of couscous (costs 2c?) with 8 pieces of vegetable (costs 5c?) dotted around it? Or Lamb for 2 euros more with 50 grams of lamb on top? The restaurant also needs modernising. It is like going back to the 80's.More
