I used to walk down to this restaurant and get take out during lunch when I worked downtown. On this occasion I joined my sister at this restaurant and we had such a delicious meal. Very nice to sit and visit and talk and not a loud environment. Perfect place for a visit. The service was quick and the menu... More

Our visit here was on a gift certificate, given to us to celebrate an anniversary. The food was good, the service acceptable. We are not anxious to return? The whole experience was so-so! Yet they are centrally located...so maybe more attention to "detail" could be suggested for this restaurant?

Wasn't quite sure what to expect, but that changed quickly. Six of us went for dinner and were greeted upon entry by the friendliest server. The range of the menu is quite good and they will gladly modify any dish to your particular liking. Not one complaint from 6 people. I think that's pretty rare. Now comes the sort of... More

I've been enjoying the food at Arabesque for (cough) more than 20 years. It is consistently very very good. We recently went with a group of friends - the service is great and she was friendly with a few members of our group with food allergies.

Excellent quality... the food never disappoints. Absolutely the best Falafel. Rice to die for. Amazing lamb.

Hard to judge, since we don't eat often in Barrie, but I'd say other reviewers overate it. Food is good but not spectacular (some dishes could have used more garlic), and quantities are fine. The menu is more diverse than a typical falafel joint, but not gourmet level. Prices seemed high for mains, though perhaps they're standard in Barrie. Wine... More
