First time at the restaurant as I have heard mixed reviews over the years - but we thought to give it a try and we were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is quite unique. There is an Italian side and an Arabic side. The menus offer both kinds of cuisine and the options are so exciting it makes you want to go there again!
We had lovely food (Vegan Tajine (with yams!) and Lasagna) and it was wonderfully filling.
The part of the restaurant we sat in was calm and relaxed with interesting decorations and music, and just a chill ambience about it.
Would love to go there again and would recommend to others.

Restaurant is actually disappointing as looks lovely from the outside but once you have ordered it appears to change
4 of us ordered and the veggie on the group had the smallest meal I’ve ever seen not a falafel more like a small bite size snack
Pizza ordered had all the extra toppings
Missing so very bland meal
Also want to try the traditional teas this restaurant advertised but apart from normal tea they had none!
Not worth the money

Two tier restaraunt offering both Italian and Lebanese / Moroccan dishes.
The mussels were excellent, very filling with a glorious broth. I had a Lebanese Chicken sizzling thing, which was their take on fajitas, wow , it was amazing , definitely would have it again.
Kids had Pizza which they destroyed ,
wife had a salady cheesy affair which she loved.
Well worth a visit.
Good Italian beer as well.

Interesting place as has an Italian and a Moroccan menu - food very good though would recommend a starter as the main meal took some time to arrive - that is fine if you ar eprepared for it
