Gueta is located directly across from the Noga theater. The d?cor is homey and simple but clean and inviting. The service is impeccable and quick and the food is delicious and very reasonably priced.

Libyan food is flavorful and tasty, spicy but not overly so. Open with an array of salads which are particularly delicious on their super-fresh bread.

Our reviewer recommends the “Complete Couscous” an all-in-one meal, that includes the lightest couscous you'll ever eat anywhere flavored with “tbicha,” “mafrum,” “yabrak.”
