To begin with, the owner will always come to your table to personally explain the menu and take your order. Everytime, with all patrons, very entertainingly. Food is very tasty, very Lebanese, very varied. Wide selection of plates with very intersting ingredients. Worth going back time and time again!

This place was great! I've been to the Middle East a number of times and I have to say that everything we ate here is more-or-less authentic Arabic food and done quite well. We ordered the Mezze for 2 people and at first, I was afraid it wouldn't be enough. I was wrong - it was just the right amount.... More

All of the food that was had here was excellent. We enjoyed our food so much we ate here again before we left. The lamb that I ate here was the most tender and tasteful that I have ever eaten! The humus was excellent and the service was too. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

It was my first time trying Lebanese food so cannot compare it with other restaurants, but we all had a highly enjoyable experience. We ordered a mezze, which was mostly small plates with different tasty mixtures. Our waitress was friendly and spoke English.

We love Lebanese food, and this restaurant is among the best. Highly recommended!! It was so good we dined here twice during our stay in Quito. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

There's no doubt about it, this is the best Lebanese cuisine in Ecuador! Not only you will love everything on the menu but the attention is extraordinary... I go here every chance I get and I always come out completely satisfied and happy. Highly recommended!!!

My wife and I both got very sick for a week after eating here! We are definitely not going back and recommending all our friends to avoid this place! Besides this very unpleasant surprise, while the restaurant decor and service were pleasant, the food was not authentic. We had the Mezze 1 variety dish. The kebbes and fallafel didn't taste...

Very nice atmosphere, lovely furnishings, lighting and music. Service also very good. Food is very good, Lot's to choose from however, portions are a tad small and prices are a tad high-hence the 4 instead of 5 star rating. I suppose we should just be thrilled tho that this restaurant even exists because Lebanese food is one of our favorites... More

Baalbek is not only a restaurant. It's a great place to have a culinary experience. If you're not familiar with Lebanese food, the staff will give you a brief introduction and will offer great suggestions (btw their baalbek lemonade is amazing) The only thing that wasn't as great as they suggested were the deserts.
