Arrived 15 mins after closing and was still accommodated. After months of little veggie options in the small towns of amazon the felafel and hummus and daal and curries blew my mind! Great atmosphere!

Not a bad place... The food was good, although the portions were small and a bit pricey. I've had better Lebanese food in other cities, but hey this Quito. My biggest gripe was the indifferent service (especially for the prices they charged). Most of the waitstaff were nice kids--- which is fine--- but they didn't provide good service and the... More

The traditional Mediterranean food offerings at BAALBEK Lebanese restaurant in Quito are way overpriced for the minimal amount of food served. Button size falafels, slightly bigger than that baklavas, everything is served in the stingiest, miserly amount for the highest possible price. That is a total disrespect for the customer, because the first thought is not to provide the visitor... More

We had heard such good things about this restaurant so we went, and we're so disappointed. When we walked in no one was around for about 10 minutes do we wandered around until finally a waiter showed up. We ordered some starters between us, falafal & humous and then each tried to order a sturfado dish. However, the waiter told... More

It's one of the few places we discovered around Plaza Foch that offers something more sophisticated than burgers and other fast food. We are vegetarian so we ordered almost everything that was without meat on the menu. The portions turned out to be very small. The food was very average except for baba ganoush. The waiters were very confused and... More
