This restaurant is in a lively part of Mayfair with a good atmosphere.
The service was excellent and the food was very good indeed.
Prices not too bad considering where it’s located.

Al Hamra is my favourite Lebanese restaurant in London. I found it by accident 15 years ago and have been back regularly ever since. I have always loved the food and experience!

Quite honestly, the service was completely off. We waited endlessly for our main course. It was not served with the appropriate condiments, And halfway through our waiter abandon us and then it was just a mishmash of people trying to help us get to the meal. I am not sure how this occurred or why this occurred but it was a completely unsatisfactory experience, after having come here before and loving the place. Do not think I will be coming back

I thought the prices were jacked up a bit too much for the kind of restaurant and services had dwindled including the welcome bowl of veggies etc wasn’t given. I think they need to get back to the basics of good food with great ambience and value

Great service. Average food.
No attempt at Covid compliance. Tables close by, customers smoking cigars and shisha.
Note to management, Smoking is not allowed even outside so stop breaking the law even if they are wealthy clients.

Been coming to Al Hamra since the 90’s for the best Lebanese in town and on all levels. The service was very courteous and welcoming but our experience was spoilt by the management’s decision to add £2.75 ‘cover charge’ per head. Considering our bill came to roughly £60/head… It made no sense why such a well established and respected restaurant would come down to the level of a shisha bar…. Wish them all the best.

Sat outdoors as a family although it was forecasted to rain, the restaurant was well equipped to keep their guests out of the rain with a good awning and side gates that were hung up as it started to rain. On my booking I noted that the reservation was for a birthday and they had prepared everything without me having to say anything apart from tell them who’s birthday it was! The service was top quality and was truly a fine dining experience. The menu had a large variety of hors d’ouvres and was truly authentically Lebanese with a selection of Armenian dishes too. We ordered many of the small plates and had no space for mains which was a lovely experience to mix and match as well as share with everyone. Portion sizes were excellent. Not too small and very filling.

Great atmosphere, good food and service. We ordered a nice selection of hot and cold mezza and a local Lebanese wine (beware wines are expensive). One guest had lemon and mint juice which was lovely. Service was great and friendly

The restaurant serves excellent Middle eastern food with an emphasis on Lebanon and has a very good list of Lebanese wines. We chose outside seating, which was quiet and more pleasant than being inside on a summer midday and found the service efficient and the staff helpful. A memorable lunch.
