Whether you live in Lebanon or you're just a visitor, you must've heard about babel bay! It is one of the best restaurants in town, especially if you're into fish.

The location is excellent . The food so tasty , delicious and the service is ok. There is also some innovation and creativity in the recipes . We liked it. It would have been also better if prices were little less. All in all , it is one if the best fish restaurants .

this was a lovely place to sit right on the marina. The food was good (mezza, but the fresh fish was unavailable due to the rain?!). The complementary fruit platter was a nice touch.

The food and service were superb. The ambiance is great, and whats nicer is the sea view! Food is pretty pricey though but worth every penny!

This is a great place to sit and enjoy the view, with food that tastes great but the price if the fish is overpriced but you can order only mezza and enjoy the ambience... The Calamari à la provençale tastes great and their hot potatoes are also something that you should order with other mezza.

The food, variety, service and overall atmosphere are exceptional. We really enjoyed every moment; however, i have to say that compared to equivalent top notch seafood restaurants in Lebanon, prices are much higher and are not justified
