We arrived at 1:30 on Saturday afternoon and the restaurant was quite busy and we were immediately seated. The restaurant was open and airy despite the air conditioning was on making the environment very comfortable. The decorations were very nice and the place had a warm feeling to it. Several people in our party had questions about items in the... More

Having lived in Egypt for almost a year, I tasted dozens (if hundreds) of "Kibbes,"Tabule" and "Tahine." I can honestly say that Árabe Gourmet, in Barranquilla, Colombia, boasts some of the most delicious, well-prepared and well-served Arab food anywhere in the globe. Without being an expert in the history of Barranquilla, I've heard that a large colony of Arabs (Lebanese,... More

For good-size portions of succulent Lebanese fare, Arabe Gourmet is a household name in Barranquilla. The decor is somewhat dated and service sometimes patchy but it's always busy and the quality of the food is great. Plato mixto is always a safe bet.

Too heavy on the garlic. Average quality with below average presentation and service. Washrooms not upto standard in amenities or cleanliness. All in all, overrated and not a top choice.

I cannot rave about the food, The humos lacked garlic, the stuffed grape leaves were lacklustre, the rice with lentils had burnt, not caramelized onions on top.

This place offers good arabian food, reasonable prices. The only flaw is the atmosphere. I mean, the restaurant is not pretty and luxurious. Besides that, you will eat very well.

First of all you have to keep in mind that there are a lot of places to eat this type of food in Barranquilla. And with all the options, this restaurant must be the last one to consider. We had two bad experiences at the Arabe Gourmet, once eating at the restaurant and another time when we ordered to be... More
