You feel like going to a good Lebanese restaurant? Daou will probably be what you're looking for. The menu offers a good variety of traditional dishes and, if you have trouble deciding what you should eat, you can always try one of their combinations.
For example, the mixed appetizers plate offers stuffed vine leaves, hummus, baba ganouj, fallafels, etc. Everything is delicious, You can also try the fatouche salad which goes very well with these appetizers. What about the entree? Try the mixed grilled meats! You'll end up with chicken, beef and lamb kefta. The meat is incredibly tender and perfectly marinated. As a side dish, you can't go wrong with either the rice or the french fries (or both!). The portions are generous as what we just described was enough to satisfy three adults. And if you feel like a bit of dessert, Daou also offers somme classics (baklava, etc.)
The ambiance is pleasant, but the restaurant is very simply furnished and lacks a bit of warmth. Also, the service isn't always the same. The waiters are very professional but some are a bit distant, maybe even uninterested. Still, we've always found our experience at Daou's to be very satisfying.
