My circle colleagues decided that it was high time for our families to meet up. We chose Bateel as the rendezvous and absolutely enjoyed it. Great location, amazing ambiance, good service but slightly steep prices. But may i add that it is definitely worth it! The snacks is bland to spicy based on your order, a superb place for "high-tea"... More

Excellent Arabic coffee and choice. However it is a little overpriced. Great for couples or good friends to chat.

The best part of the restaurant is the sophisticated menu and preparation suitable for the sophisticated but unpretentious palate. The salads, soups and main dishes do feature typical Lebanese fare but have nice additions which the whole family will enjoy. It is a bit on the pricey side and not super child friendly but suitable for special occasions.

The food has outstanding quality which explains the outstandingly high prices. At times like Ramadan the service can become really bad and disappointing, however take away is always an option.
