Both myself and Ash took a trip here during a cloudier weekend in May and although Ash knew the owner, we didn’t expect to be treated as extremely well as I thought right from the minute we walked through the door! From start to finish the waiters and waitresses made us feel like we were celebrities, as we wined and dined around some refreshingly good tasting food.
First of all we were laiden with fresh orange juice (freshly squeezed – may I add), fresh water, and a French rose wine which tasted beautifully sweet and fruity. Then along came the cold mezze platter consisting of a variety of dips; zesty yogurt, chick pea hummus and plenty of fresh salad to go with. The stuffed vine leaves reminded me of a holiday in Greece, but extremely more satisfying (minus the sun!) One thing that I noticed was how beautifully everything was laid out and presented to us. Food presentation is clearly not given a back seat at this restaurant!
The next course was a hot mezze platter filled with Lebanese sausages, pastries, spiced chili potatoes and grilled halloumi with a side order of pitta breads. Shortly after, we were given one seafood platter and one grilled meats platter, both of which were presented exceedingly appealing in their own way. Plus I tried Lobster for the first time, which I can say was cooked to absolute perfection! They offered us chips, rice and a variety of dips to go with our platters – all of which we bought home with us as we clearly did not want to waste this!
Afterwards we were presented with some Moroccan mint tea to help aid digestion which was served in intricate designed silverware, followed by coffee and a small variety of puddings (we were offered more choice but we politely declined due to the expansion of our bellies!)
I honestly couldn’t believe how many dishes the restaurant gave us to try but unfortunately for mine and Ash’s appetite we could not finish it all. However, the waiters were extremely helpful in packaging all our food up for us to take home (waste not – want not!)
Which leads me onto my next point – the staff in the restaurant were extremely friendly throughout the duration of our visit and were constantly topping up our water and making sure everything was okay with our meals which didn’t go unnoticed.
I highly recommend this restaurant with it’s large menus, variety of food to choose from and staff being extremely helpful and kind. Every dish that is brought out to you is explained clearly and there are vegetarian options available for those wanting to go meat free. The staff there are also happy to change the style of the dishes to suit your specific dietary requirements.
A great service from an extremely lovely restaurant – thank you – we will be back! Let me know in the comments below if you’ll be taking a trip to this restaurant any time soon, and if so, let me know what dishes you choose!
