There are dozens of cold and hot mezza to navigate through on the menu, as well as a selection of main courses at this luxuriously appointed restaurant. They’re all well made from quality ingredients, although some dishes are certainly better suited to more adventurous palates. You probably can’t go too wrong ordering the hindbeh – dandelion with fried onion and lemon. Really, when do fried onions not taste good? It’s handy to have a good grasp of either Lebanese cuisine or the Arabic language if you dine here. Otherwise, a lot gets lost in translation, as English-speakers don’t appear to be the targeted clientele. The menu advertises a fish display offering seafood ‘cooked your way’ but we were informed this means fried. Our waiter’s English wasn’t good enough to explain further. The prices are fairly reasonable for the Pearl, and the portions are fairly large. However, don’t expect to get a doggy bag: we were told at the end of our meal that there was ‘no takeaway at the Pearl’. We could only guess that it has something to do with maintaining some sort of appearance of luxury that can only be accomplished by wasting food.
