The resturant, located beyond the hotel's lobby under the atrium, offeres an elegant and airy feeling. It's elegant, yet simple and relaxed. I visited this resturant for iftar this year and and ordered coffee and headed straight for the cold mezze. Cucumbers, olives, tabouleh, hummus, baba ganoush, fattoush- anything you name, was there! And it was fresh and delicious- especially the tabouleh! Highlights are the oriental rice,which was perfectly spiced and chicken with lemony potatoes. Make sure you save room in your tummy for the dessert. Kunafa, choclate cake, baklava and others,, all mind-blowing. It's perfect and economical- what else do you want!
