Amoul cooks very special dishes that are infused with memories whilst growing up in Marjeyoune, in the South of Lebanon. Many of her recipes have been handed down through generations, given to her by her parents, who were both excellent cooks, and her style of cooking is simple, uncomplicated and elegant. Her menu changes daily, depending on what she feels like cooking and often you will find a couple of European dishes that have been given to her by friends she has made in many countries she has lived in. Amoul's is a warm environment, a home away from home.

Service is friendly but sometimes a bit quirky unless you know the unwritten rules,...more
