“amongst the most delicious Lebanese cuisine restaurants”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

i love this restaurant , so do most of my friend , if ur into traditional Lebanese cuisine its a must go !
the foods always fresh and delicious
if ur going on a Saturday or Sunday make a reservation ( especially for dinner) it gets really busy
i prefer going for dinner as the breath taking temple is lit - up

“It's 15 minutes from beirut”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

This restaurant is only 15 minutes from Beirut and is actually in the Greater Beirut area. One o the best Lebanese restaurants, with live musicians (violin and piano) on weekends. Their hommos and moutabbal are a must, high ceilings, ask always for the mid. Level ( it has three levels)

“Absolutely delicious”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

Been there with friends. The restaurant is great. Nice decoration like a fortress. It makes u feel like in old babel. Food is teaditional lebanese with their own twist. Very yummy. Only the fruit wasnt good at all. Maybe because it was in the fall season. Would definitely go there again. Be ware it needs a reservation.

“Elegant Oriental Restaurant in Retro-Phoenician Look”
Reviewed March 26, 2011

We have had been invited in a group to have dinner at Babel Restaurant.
The location is on the main road to Jounieh/Lebanon, which is easy to access on this highway.

The restaurant is completely new and once you entre this place you feel you entre a temple from the old phoenician stile, with huge and massive real stones and pillars.
The restaurant has 2 main levels and the height of the ceiling is more than 5 (!) metre. The ceiling is decorated like an evening sky with spots, decorated and shining as stars !

There is live piano and violine music in excellent condition.

The food:

The food is oriental in all sense with considerable number of starters ( meze ) and then from fish to meat offers all you may consider from the Lebanese Kitchen.

We were told that there is a slight "Iraqi" influence and the decoration and appearance on the long, dark plates: excellent.

The quality was fantastic and the taste of food was marvelous !

We will definately be visiting this place again.
