In our yearly trips to visit family Barranquilla, a lunch at the Arabe Gourmet is always a highlight! The Maria sisters take turns hosting and running the restaurant that features Arab and Middle Eastern dishes using their mother's original recipes brought over from Bethlehem in Palestine. The Labneh, stuffed lamb tripe, kippe (raw, fried, or grilled), the babaganoush, marmahon, and... More

Love this food and here they do it delicious. Anything you order is good. This is from a traditional Lebanese family so you are in the correct hands. Go and visit you will not regret. Good for groups, events.

I was told you could eat good arab food all around this city but this was the best, I had lunch here and was really great, restaurant was full and the service was a bit slow but you don't notice because of the quality of food you are eating.

This is a superb Lebanese restaurant - great service and lovely surroundings - don't be put off by the outside. The Shawar Pollo and Plato Mix Vege were of generous size and full of flavour. They came with pitta bread and was beautifully presented. Service was attentive but discreet.

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
