About Levantine

For all who love Levant, a second amour awaits in the form of the charming Levantine. The low seating, brass tables, and magically traditional Lebanese artwork all echo Levant, as does the hint of incense in the air, rose petals, and candlelight. Shortlisted as one of the Evening Standard’s most affordable restaurants of the year, and we can see why. This is a place for feasting and sharing of many flavours: we can recommend any of the mezze menus, not only for their absurd affordability, but also for the thirty or so wonderful little courses that are brought to you by cheerful, smiling waiting staff. The hammered brass platters make a fine setting for dishes like hommus beiruty, foul moudamas, stuffed vine leaves, octopus salad, spicy Armenian sausages, and on and on. There are terrific choices here for vegetarians, a head-turning cocktail list, and the best of Lebanese wine to complement it all.
