The Lebanese food there can be considered 7 out of 10 rating but the entertaining program offered by the restaurant and the comfort of its sittings is something to count on. Good life music.....

I don't think there is an age restriction, but I would say it is more focused on grown-ups in terms of both menu and ambiance. There is a show in the evenings that starts quite late, for smaller children at least.
