Experience Middle Eastern warmth, vibrant dishes and rich aromas…

Savour our smoky baba ganoush: an aubergine dip mixed with tahini and drizzled with cold-pressed zeit zeitoun (olive oil), which we harvest each year from our fields. Complement your meal with a bottle of Lebanese wine from our collection of world-renowned vintages produced in the southern Beqaa Valley, or choose from a wide selection of premium wines from around the globe.

For diners with a sweet tooth, we recommend our homemade baqlewa, a sweet dessert pastry made of thin layers of filo filled with chopped nuts, sweetened and held together with drizzled syrup. Or indulge in our modern twist on shaabiyat, stacked filo dough topped with decadent milk and cream custard, and sweet sticky syrup with essence of rose water and orange blossom.

Finally, close off your dining experience by savouring our Arabic coffee, a dark and fragment blend with bittersweet notes of cardamom, which is sourced and roasted locally.
