Umayyad Palace Restaurant

1 review of Umayyad Palace Restaurant

Stunning views, good prices, and delicious cuisine

Like most places in Damascus, this charming restaurant is located in a narrow, nameless alleyway adjacent to the south wall of the Omayyad Mosque. The whole bottom area is decorated like Ali Baba's cave and is very tourist-oriented: furniture encrusted with pearls, rich oriental carpets, dim lighting, etc. At night, there are Syrian music and acrobatics shows. Although the bottom floor can be interesting, I recommend climbing up to the top floor where there's a restaurant with a fantastic terrace. The views of the Umayyad Mosque are truly spectacular and it's a chance to dine in a quieter environment.
