Everything we tasted was fantastic! We had 4 different meals and shared...falafels, chicken, salads, pickled veggies, so many delicious options. HIGHLY recommend if you crave something not so typical :) YUM!

This was my first visit and I did wonder how good it would be. It's like going to your aunt's house. There were 5 of us and we ordered the pickle plate and a mixed starter plate (can't remember what it's actually called ) and they were both excellent and a decent enough size for a starter for all 5...

I have never had a meal that I didn't like in this restaurant. Everything is done well and tastes delicious. I have been dining here regularly for more than 20 years, and I have chosen Arabesque to host special occasions in my life. It is always a pleasure to visit with the owners, Lucy and Julia.

The food is always made fresh and the portions are not too large. The food is tasty without being too spicy, and the prices are reasonable. A nice lunch spot as well, try the homemade mint tea after your meal.

We paased by Barrie today and stopped for lunch at Arabesque.  We like middle eastern food, especially when good quality ingredients are used, and this is exactly what happens at Arabesque. The chef came by to ask how we like the food too. Lentil soup was fresh and tasty and baba ganoush was divine. We will come back next time... More

Started with the lentil soup which was very good with lemon, then had a lamb kabob - the most succulent and tender that I have had in a long time and the arugula salad and garlic potatoes that accompanied it were perfect. The service was most amiable and although it may take a little while for the food to appear... More

Arabesque has great service and even better food - the grape leaves and lentil soup are amazing as appetizers. We had the lamb and it was truly authentic, clearly made with the time and care of home cooking. The chicken was also great and we also loved the baklava for dessert - everything is homemade here and it really shows!... More
