Service: The staff were very sweet and the manager – Mickael took great care of us.

What we loved: We had a quick and short experience at 3in1 as time was of essence to us that day. Getting on with the food… both the starters and mains came together as we asked as some of us were only wanting to eat a small meal. The setting and presentation of everything was super cute. The Scallop dish, was extremely rich in flavor and the avocados were very fresh. The whole mixture is the best lunch dish you could opt for especially when you want to eat just the right amount of food. The Kale salad was a healthy dish to start with, very fresh and juicy leaves with the right amount of sauce, if you like your kale salad as simple as possible, this would be the perfect dish. Coming to the mains, the oriental board is the perfect main dish to order as it consists of everything from a chicken dish to the lamb dish to the moutabel and it also comes with extra Arabic bread (but you would have to ask your server for it) it was definitely our favorite dish at 3in1.

What we didn’t like as much: The food took ages to arrive. We literally waited a good 20 minutes for our dishes to arrive.

What we recommend:

  • Oriental board
  • Scallop, white bean puree, avocado vinaigrette, crispy onion

Ambiance: Quite busy on a weekday afternoon. It’s a mix of families & people that have their quick work lunches and meetings. But we would imagine the atmosphere of the restaurant to be completely different on weekends. A very welcoming ambiance on the whole.
