“Excellent lebanese food”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

I visited this restaurants many times and yesterday was one of them. The most remarkable thing about this place is that the quality and freshness of his dishes never change. It's a family owned business and the mother still supervises everything. Mezze and raw meat are fresh and tasteful but my favorites at this place are the frogs (a la provincale: garlic, coriander and lemon), grilled or sauteed birds and the grills (the meat is very tender and well prepared and spiced). At the end, beside the fruits and coffee, I recommend the (authentic) mhalabiya (a lebanese dessert prepared from milk).

“Most tender meat ever”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Very tender barbecue, fresh kebah nayah, amazing mazzahs. we just came back from Beirut and ate at some of the most recommended restaurants but this one is a class of its own!!
The desserts are not to be missed, even you are full. We were a big group and we got to try all of them. WOW!!
It is a casual place in town and very well priced.
the down part it has no view. it is a place you go to to eat good food.

“The reference”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

After all these years, Halabi is still serving among the best lebabese table in town. The mezze are fresh, tasty and colorful, the raw meat is prepared as an art and the spices are perfect. The machawi are to perfection. Family or friends, Halabi has always catered for all this area need. To go, and go again, for luch, for dinner, for take away or for a sandwich. There is always a smiling person at the front desk.

“Good Place”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

One of my favorite Lebanese restaurants. I like the crowd too. This place is not very big, so it is wise to make reservations if you can. Also, a good place for birthdays and other celebrations. Good value.
