Four of us showed up on a Saturday evening and it was very busy. The kind gentlemen made sure we had a seat and took our order thoroughly.. The food came out promptly and it was very nice and fresh. Once our meals were finished we were give a refreshing shot drink which was lovely! Reasonably priced too! ☺️

Thoroughly enjoyed a superb meal here. Great, non intrusive but friendly service. Food was excellent. Rounded off with a complementary liqueur. Will return if we visit here again. Gracias. Highly recommended.

Delicious food at a reasonable price. We tried several restaurants during our 2 days (3 meals) in Arcos, and Babel was by far the best. Had the hummus and eggplant appetizers, followed by the chicken tagine (fall off the bone tender, great flavor, large portion) and the kofta kebab (tender and so flavorful). We had a nice conversation with the... More

As soon as you walk into Babel, you know you have found somewhere very different. The soft furnishings and decor are reminiscent of a soukh, whilst being very comfortable and offering flexible seating for different sized parties. If you are very lucky you will be invited to sit in the intimate upstairs mezzanine level. Babel offers some wines that are... More

Great lunch venue with friendly and efficient service and lovely Morroccan food. Nice change from tapas. Located on the main drag from the car park it seems closed at first but you have to wait for the automatic doors to open. Air con very welcome. Only a small venue but very reasonable and tasty menu Del dia. Would go again.
