Traditional family-run restaurant.

Between South Wimbledon and Colliers Wood, parking usually right outside.

Our head chef worked extensively in Lebanon using traditional techniques so our food is prepared with the passion and expertise it deserves.

We offer an enticing selection of over 40 meze dishes, many of which are vegetarian. Our wonderfully marinated meats are grilled to perfection over lumpwood charcoal to bring out the best of flavours. A fine selection of Lebanese wine and beer is available to compliment your meal.

We went to Cedar for a small family dinner and were most impressed. The restaurant was reasonably sized and had an intimate feel to it. The menu was full of variety and the portions were large. Service was swift and very friendly. The food itself was delicious and for a first time trying Lebanese cuisine will definitely be back for more.

I had a lovely meal with my girlfriend, it has a really nice atmosphere and the food was great. Lots of variety in the menu and the staff were friendly. It’s a good local independent restaurant that I’d recommend to anyone who likes Lebanese.

Cedar is by far and away our favourite restaurant in Wimbledon. We have been with friends, kids, clients, and lots of vegetarians, and everyone comes away really happy. There is a wide variety of different types of meze which means you can try lots of different things. The portions are plenty big enough for sharing. It’s hard to pick a favourite, but the feta cheese salad is lovely, pastries & breads really good, and the foul moudammas is another favourite.

Very disappointed as the portion sizes do not live up to when you order takeaway.

You would be better doing takeaway and avoiding the service charge.

An evening for a quiet family celebration (award to my daughter). Nice welcome, warm chatter, unobtrusive background music (hooray), great food - we had six meze dishes (several excellent, not one under par) and a bottle of Lebanese Massaya wine, a wine of character which I must recommend. If you are looking for authentic Lebanese cuisine, we noted more than one party of Lebanese customers chatting happily in Lebanese to the proprietors. Nuff said.

Our Dutch guests requested we book to go here again. They were still talking about last year's visit! We shared meze dishes and grills from the huge choice. Favourites were Feta Salad, Fakafel, Foul Madammas and the sausages and pastries- but it's hard to single things out. It was all delicious. It's a great way to get kids to try new things and heaven for veggies. We'll be back!

We had Christmas Eve lunch here with my father who had lived in Lebanon for 8 years. He found his usual wine on the list and was pleased with the authentic food. We were the only ones there for an early lunch so our 4 year old had run of the place whilst the owner made a number of deliveries to local addresses. We'll definitely come back, the food was great and something different to the usual international/fusion food found in most local restaurants (i.e. pizza, burger, pasta, etc).

We needed a venue for a Saturday family lunch which was walkable from S Wimbledon tube station and possible to park easily as well. This Lebanese restaurant fitted the bill nicely. We wanted a meze lunch and the owner was on hand to talk through the options and make suggestions. Dishes were plentiful and everyone enjoyed the food. Our Moroccan waiter was friendly and helpful. All in all a pleasant lunch and happy to recommend.

We had not been to Cedars for some time, so we just ordered our old favourites - the smoked aubergine, the chicken livers, etc. I'm happy to report the standard is still as high as ever (and that the background music is still as unobtrusive). I can now also recommend the white Massaya Lebanese wine, which we tried for the first time.
