Chef Nizar´s menu is combined with traditional Lebanese delicacies and a wide range of international cuisine. Hidden within the maze of Arrecife, it has spent 10 years in strengthening its menu by carefully selecting products before cooking on the stove. The restaurant has two largerooms; they are decorated tastefully and have pleasant furnishings. It is nicely spaced out creating privacy and tranquillity for a lovely evening.
It would seem silly to visit Chef Nizar without trying the traditional Lebanese starters. Hummus (creamed chickpeaswith sesame) or mutabal (creamed smoked aubergines with sesame) taste wonderful when accompanied with traditional Lebanese bread. Fried Kebbe (meat croquettes with wheat, onions and pine nuts) or Fatiras (spinach and pine nut pastries) are also great choices. We would recommend that you choose your dishes wisely and the one in one to avoid the mixture of flavours. The parsley salad or the duck served with red currant sauce are other alternatives to the starter menu. Every day Chef Nizar creates a suggestion menu, today its tuna belly with roasted peppers.
As for the dishes, the speciality of the house is lamb. It comes stuffed with rice and pine nuts and cooked “oriental style” (see bottom right photo) yet is only prepared at the weekends. It is very well accomplished and absolutely delicious whether it is the cuchifrito, shoulder, chops or half a leg. Delicious and fresh products such as veal steak or grilled tenderloin are highly recommended. Chef Nizar´s great selection of products can be found in the taste of the soft chicken supreme served with a curry tropical sauce.
The restaurants wine list is one of the most comprehensive on the island however; it does not offer a good value for money for many of its wines. The pastries are diverse andhave rich flavourings. Fruit and ice cream are served at a great demand yet we recommend that you try the tasty hot cheese puff pastry with ice cream. The kitchen works promptly and the service lives up to the standard, it is very correct and friendly.
