I had to arrange a business dinner at Joseph's. There is a room in the back for private meetings which was perfect for us and can hold maybe 15-20 people. I have to admit I was a little busy to eat, but my 5 guests...More

Joseph's Restaurant is named after owner and chef, Lebanese-born Joseph Habr, who has over 35 years of experience under his belt. Nestled in the verdant Rookery Nook in Maraval, Joseph's is a unique haven away from the bustle of the city. Joseph's Restaurant offers many options for a unique dining experience. Diners can choose from the main dining area cooled by fans and the gentle breezes, the elegant air conditioned room or a private room suited for board meetings. Also available is the newly added patio area on the outskirts of the building with lush greenery and the chirping of the birds in the trees.
