After two weeks in Spain Babel and it's authentic Morrocan cuisine hit the spot. Especially enjoyed the roasted eggplant app and the chicken dish with cinnamon and almonds wrapped in phyllo dough.

Nothing special here but the food is good as is the atmosphere. Friendly wait staff. No real detractors but nothing special, either.

Visitors to Arcos de la Frontera are missing a gem of unpretentious dining if they go to Arcos and do not try Moroccan food at family run Babel. There were 3 of us and we shared everything, a tasting! The Pastelas, the chicken pie was absolutely superb, exactly as good as I remembered tasting it at the famous 5 star... More

We arrived at closing time and the owner kindly accommodated us with a big smile. We ordered vegetable cous cous which was delicious, healthy and fresh. We appreciated her hospitality and would recommend to others. We would have loved to have tried more off the menu :)

Babel came highly recommended and so, we had to try it out. Besides, I love Moroccan food, and had to get my fix as there aren't many Moroccan places near here. While the owner/server was a little gruff at first he definitely warmed up and proved to be a great host. We ordered the pastila, kefta, a great, fresh house... More

I can't agree with Babel's rating based on our experience there. We popped in for a late lunch but ended up stranded in Babel for over two hours... After an initial seating from the proprietor, we were left for 20 minutes before we could order & more than 45 minutes before the food came; another 20-30 minutes to get the... More
