Amazing lebanese original cuisine! with all the spices and flavours, traditional bread and delicious wine. the service is very good as well and prices are not high. You can also buy some lebanese wine and syrups there.

The menu has plenty of cold and warm starters, as well as main dishes and desserts. We decided to go with 3 starters each and the dessert , if we still had some appetite. The choice is quite vast but be aware, as they prepare everything fresh, not all the items on menu are available on the particular day. That... More

As a lover of Lebanese food, I was very happy to see that there was a restaurant very close to where we were staying in Gzira. I was not disappointed as the food and service were great. The restaurant is quite small but had a great atmosphere on the Saturday night that we went. Highlights were the complimentary chicken liver... More

This restaurant is excellent under any point of view. Great service, absolutely delicious food, great wines and great overall experience. It is without any doubt one of the best restaurants in Malta. We had a wide selection of cold/warm mezze and we tried all the mains, one special mention certainly goes to the meat, cooked to perfection, tender and juicy.... More

Ali Baba has kept its excellent Quality and Service!!! It is always full so do reserve or go by after 10 pm and you might just get a table. My favorite recommendations:: Starter: Fattoush (a mixture of cucumbers tomatoes, onions, mint, sumac, lemon Juice, olive oil and pitta croutons). Main course: Sharhat Laahmet Meshwieh ( grilled and marinated strips of... More

The owner is a true character! Very friendly and helpful. Definitely go with the platters for €25 pp and the Lebanese red wine. As-much-as-you-can-eat food, wide variety, and excellent quality. Definitely worth going
