Cedar Lebanese Restaurant

I've been about 6 times over the past 18 months. Lovely decor, very good atmosphere, a good place for a lingering meal (unlike a previous reviewer, I've never been asked to vacate the table.) I've never actually had a main course here: I've always been with a partner and we've shared a number of starters: Armenian sausages, feta salad (one of the best in town), spicey potatoes, haloumi bread... Great selection and all delicious. I've found that about 6 starters is ample between 2 people. I must say I don't rate Lebanese wine highly. The rose is acceptable, but I find the reds too harsh. Overall I think this is a great little restaurant - a good place for a cozy and intimate dinner date (if you ignore the fact that Merton High Street isn't at all romantic!)

Limon Shish & Mezze

This is a small place, the decor is modern cafe style - clean and fresh. Seating is on low square stools - not the most comfortable. I thought the mezze were excellent: good selection, very fresh and tasty, served with excellent bread. The lamb shish was not the best I've had, though perfectly acceptable. The wine was good (a rare event in many small places!) Between the two of us we had one shared mezze starter, one main course each, one shared dessert, a glass of wine, 2 soft drinks and a coffee. Bill was £40, which I thought very reasonable. It's a cafe, so a place for a quickish meal rather a long lingering dinner. but I will definitely return.
