If you happen to be in Beirut and you are familiar with lebanese cuisine, you might be looking for a change while keeping the authentic local taste. This is one of the best restaurants to offer a new type of lebanese cuisine mixed with Iraqi taste. they offer a menu set (4 person min) with plenty of choices and very... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by the concierge of the Phoenicia Intercontinental Hotel. She is said it is a Lebanese Fusion. Well I have to say it was a great recommendation and I really enjoyed the meal. The design of the restaurant is really cool. The Ceiling looks like the night sky covered with shining stars.

Food was delicious, although i did not like the "kebbeh" there as it was very much of a fusion to the traditional one. presentation if impressive. service is excellent. prices are acceptable compared to restaurants of the same caliber.

I went to Babel in Dbayeh during my last visit to Lebanon earlier this month, and I must say that I was NOT at all disappointed. The ambience is great. Very warm and welcoming.

This restaurant has is all. We were received properly at the reception. The interior architecture is amazing. The service is quick and the waiters professional. The food is wonderful and presented nicely. The bill is a bit on the high side but worth it. The chairs aren't very comfortable. Would recommend without hesitation.
