The only observation we have is that the place lacks atmosphere. There are white walls and a TV on the wall. It's not very inviting to want... read more

Every time I visit this restaurant the food is excellent. My favorite is Plato Mixto, but they make a great Marmaon. I also recommend thebsteaks.

Nice restaurant. People from Barranquilla suggested this is the place to have Arabic food in Barranquilla. Plates are served with generosity and flavors are as good as they can get. Service was good and food well plated. I also had a House Lemonade, very good. Will come back for sure!

I had lunch there and it was great, authentic Arabic food and it was delicious, When we got there wasn´t crowded but when we finished the lunch it was really packed, so I guess it is very popular.

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

Not only for Arab food but the steak is great at this place. For dessert the "postre de natas" is the bomb. Will always come back.

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.
