“Really tasty and a very nice service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

In a quite cozy place with a very friendly and helpful service Sabaya serves very tasty and delicious Lebanese food. The best Middle Eastern food I have ever had. First of they treated me with a fresh and nicelooking salad, then the appetizers (Tabouleh, Fallafel and grilled haloumi) was supertasty. I then had two mains, both very good.
In all it was clean, very tasty and good food. I am very glad I went here and defiantly recommend it.

“Great food and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We ate at the Sabaya restaurant during our stay and enjoyed every single morsel of our set menu meal. We tried Egyptian wine with our dinner and were very pleasantly surprised at how good it was never having tasted it before. The meal represented good value for money and the service was great.
