This is a very nice restaurant. I liked the atmosphere, decoration, the staff was very attentive and food was very tasty. This is the first time I visited this restaurant and I will definitely come back. I went with a friend and we order half portion of many dishes ... It was excellent. I specially liked tabule and hommus, but... More

We went for lunch after a recommendation from our hotel and the place did not disappoint. All dishes were tasty and service great.

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

First of all I can say the menu was limited, and at the same time, althought I am not an expert of Lebanese food, the taste was not what I expected, I heard the pastry, and the sweets, were very good, but we didn't try those so regarding food, not a good experience. Service was better, and I heard on... More

Went to Baalbek with friends in search of a good fun meal. We ended up with tiny portions and 0 money left in our wallets. There was not a single other person in the place but still our service was less than desirable. Our waiter convinced members of our party that one 'full plate' was a better deal than 2... More

I grew up on Lebanese food and rank it up in my top 3 types of food. The Baalbek experience, however, did not live up to either my expectations or prior experiences. My main complaints about Baalbek are the incredibly small portions (and as a result, the price), the poor selection (which excludes many standard Lebanese dishes), and the service... More

We passed this place while walking to Mariscal one afternoon and stopped in to view the menu. Although I found the menu choices to be somewhat limited, we thought that this would make a nice change from local Ecuadorian food. We both enjoy Lebanese food and decided to return on another evening for dinner. Twice we went back and the... More

Baalbek offers delicious Lebanese cuisine, good service, and a pleasant atmosphere. My mother's family is Lebanese, and I know their food well. I dined there once with my aunt and uncle (whose father was Lebanese, and we were all very impressed. The food is authentic and well spiced (a welcome relief in Ecuador, where the food can be pretty bland,... More
