Lebanese cuisine, which can be traced from ancient Phoenician times, is widely accepted to be one of the best cuisines in the world. Its secret relies heavily on the use of fresh ingredients, and this is exactly where Mont Liban scores high. Putting aside the old-fashioned decor and the lack of a smile on the owner’s face, the restaurant provides an unforgettable culinary experience with a large variety of traditional dishes available. To complete the culinary journey, Lebanese sweets are a must-try.

Guests entering Ispahan instantly travel through the countries of One Thousand and One Nights. It is not solely the sublime decor that welcomes customers to Persia; it is also the taste of the exquisite food. The chef is clearly a master of Persian cuisine, as many tables are filled with Iranians, which can only be a good sign. Order from their large selection of grills and kebabs, which comes with saffron rice, an unusual yet outstandingly tasty way to serve the grain. At the end of the meal, the patisserie is a definite must-try.

The genuine, friendly owner and staff immediately greet their customers with a warm welcome before offering a variety of menus, from those designed to help curious beginners to a collection of mezze for true connoisseurs.
