The place is simple, with tables outside on the sidewalk. The service knows the menu and have good advice if you do not know Lebanon food. Not cheap, but you can order dishes to share so you can taste different flavors. Good.

This food is amazing. The hummus is out of this world as are the falafel and empanadas. The service is also spectacular. I have been here a few times and it is consistently excellent!

Dear all this restaurant is a rip off. Too damn expensive and no value for money. I had only a Hummus, Fatoush and a bottle of water for PESO 268. This is too much.

This was one of the best Lebanese restaurants in the city but quality and service have declined. It has become hit and miss really. I used to go at least twice a month but some bad experiences have kept me away at times. Traditional dishes...More

We come back again and again to this wonderful restaurant. The food is delicious, elegant and casual, always a pleasure. This is great Lebanese food!

Easy to explore either on bike or foot, Condesa offers
a great variety of activities and places to visit
while admiring its neo-colonial architecture. Diverse
restaurants vary from regional to global along its
streets, while local bars even let you craft your own
beer. The urban yet relaxing vibe let visitors cycle
or stroll on the Amsterdam Circuit.
