Great experience if you want to go Off the Standard thing

We wanted to have dinner in Hoofddorp with four older kids. Based on the positive reviews we we choose Arabesk. The restaurant offers authentic lebanese food, while the staff (although the one we spoke) came from Syria. We choose the large mezze for 2 person to start with.

We booked online a table on Saturday night and as our shopping finished earlier, we were able to change the reservation to one hour earlier. Starting with nice light cocktail, we were well adviced on all meal options. We opted for the mazza set ( medium size ). Really nice combination of salads, cold dishes and hot dishes. Each dish...

I really enjoyed the food here. Amongst the best arabic food Ive eaten outside the M.E. Really great mezzeh. The only thing I missed on was the traditional garlic sauce ( thoom) , which they said they dont prepare as there is no demand for it from local customers.

The Lebanese kitchen is one of the best in the world. At Arabesque you get a very nice taste of it. Like it's Nepalese neighbors, this restaurant seems to be in the wrong town. In Haarlem or Amsterdam it would definitely get more attention. The food smells great, is very tasteful and served in good portions. A 'do recommend' for... More

We have visited this local restaurant a few times with freinds, family and in couple, it is always a good choice. The mezzes are delicious, you dont need a main course after having some hot and cold mezzes, but if you do you have sevearl meat dishes, that are very tender and prepared on the grill. The service is very... More
