Grandiose setting, comfortable seats, unique Lebanese dishes with a twist, attentive waiters... thumbs up! (Not your destination if you're looking for traditional Lebanese cuisine though)

The place is great. The interior is very nice, as well the service is very good. The menu is very good, despite the fact that I prefer more authentic, and simple Lebanese food.

Babel is one of the best restaurants in Lebanon offering a Lebanese cuisine menu with a twist in addition to other Arabic food items. The decoration and architecture takes you to the old days of Babel while the food and service are more than excellent.

I went there for dinner with my husband and we were really impressed with the new old lebanese platters given with a twist and with a good portion, it is wearth visiting even with friends, for lunch or dinner.
