I visited Babel bay with my wife last summer during my visit to Lebanon, I can say it Absolutely Amazing experience. Once you reach the restaurant you can easily feel the welcoming & charm atmosphere from a very well trained staff and the elegant mood...reflected by an exceptional interior. We were lucky to find a table on the terrace and enjoy our dinner while watching the marina and yachts in front of us. Servers always alerted and highly attentive for every and each detail, we were lost a bit in the menu but to tell you the truth all the recommendations they did was really outstanding. I can highly recommend you to try the Salmon Salad, Mafrouket Tajen, Squid with Ink, Fattet Shrimps and of course don’t forget to go and choose your fresh fish to be fried or baked from the exceptional fish display. You have to keep in mind whenever you visit Babel Bay to keep a place for their special offered dessert, jams and fruits. I highly recommend this place and definitely will do it again during my next visit to Lebanon. Keep it Up!More

Babel has already positioned itself as being different from the traditional Lebanese cuisine. Where most of the dishes come with a twist. And some are a themselves a twist. Babel Bahr has done the same as a Lebanese seafood Reataurant where it’s all high quality...unique delicious food. That’s beside the fact that the location is superbly over viewing the sea. Babel is always Grandiose. A must try for sure.More

Definitely a Must stop for everyone who is visiting Beirut. We went there for a dinner with friends and we spent a great time together. The fresh fish and the shrimps were super delicious. The traditional appetisers and the tabule salad were also amazing and...the taste was authentic. It’s not a place for meat lovers because there is not much of a big choice for them. It’a mainly a seafood restaurant. The service is also amazing. Staff members are polite and welcoming. And the cheery on top was the romantic and beautiful view of the Zaitunay Bay.More

Excellent food. The raw fish mezze were unbelievable! Shrimp and fish amazing as well as octopus. They helped us order a taxi and someone escorted us to it therefore service better than expected. Obviously not cheap at all but worth the money!More

This well known restaurant in Zaitunay Bay certainly has an excellent menu. Service is a bit haphazard. The problem with the restaurant is not the food. The food is great. The ambience is buzzing. It's just that there doesn't really seem to be any sould...to the restaurant. It's just a commercial venture. A good one, but nothing that really stands out.More
