Small family restaurant. Busy on weekends, you need to book a table. Good food and friendly service. Be prepared to waite for the main course and bring your own wine.

Such a a lovely restaurant. Beautiful Lebanese cuisine in an intimate setting. Lovely hosts, truly welcoming in this quaint, authentic BYO restaurant. The baklava is to die for. And it serves such healthy food that you are (nearly) bouncing with energy when you leave...

Lebanon is a small country on the Eastern coast of the Mediterranean. The cuisine tends to be more varied and refined than its Middle Eastern neighbours. Vegetarians will be at home in any Lebanese restaurant as they include many vegetarian healthy options. Close your eyes and pretend you've been transported to another world and back to the Middle East. It's a small oasis walking through the door of Cedar bringing you to an unexpected space. It is a must in any tour of the maiden city. City of culture 2013 A true taste of Lebanon. Open Wednesday-Saturday 5:30-9:30 pm A warm welcome awaits one and all. Available for private parties max 30 people
