Cannot recommend highly enough!

Wow--what a treat, and wildly exceeded expectation! Great food, reasonable prices, and the service was faster and more helpful than anything I'd seen in a long time. Great staff. And good place to view the fountains, but we preferred to stay in the air-con.

We got to try lots of options from the menu and didn't have one bad thing. Service was a little slow but they are very busy. Prices are very reasonable for the portions you get. Beautifully set.

If we talk about welcome and service i would give them 1 but the quality and quantity of the food served raises the rate. But i suppose that in these days restaurants should already understand that the customer isnt just there to fill his stomach. We passed there for the view over fountains and burj khalifa for a late lunch,... More

Enter the restaurant and head straight for the patio! Grab some shisha and enjoy the view of the Burj and sites around the area. The fountains are beautiful too.

Well I was introduced to Al Hallab in 2005!!! I am a vegetarian but still it's an amazing selection for me . I guess lebanese is very uncomplicated cuisine !! Humus, Pita ,Tabouleh, Tomato Slices and the Garlic Paste is to die for!!! Bon Appetite !
