“Excellent address”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

I like this restaurant very much, first because of the original place, nice design. Second because of the variety in the menu that has some new born lebanese dishes, and sometimes original and unique ... Third, because of the excellent taste. So i advise u to go for it!

“The very good service and food”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My first experience at Babel Zaitounah bay was great, i went again having apprehension as to a fiasco, a non consistency traditional scenario. But no, service was great, fish was great, and their own creations, very good . I have to admit their price is on the high side,but given they maintain quality and standards, its justified.

“Not just meals, don't miss the desert”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Apart from the amazing atmosphere, the brilliant mezzos and nice food
Never ever miss the deserts of this restaurant
I thought that the best deserts like Halwa el Jebn (Cheese sweet) is available only in Syria. I was wrong, it also exists in this restaurant
Also the Booza (Ice cream) qeshta belqeshta (cream with cream topping) is not to be missed

“Great Lebanese food with a twist”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We usually go there for Sunday family lunches, as this is a typical Lebanese restaurant. However, the way the food is prepared and presented is a bit original, and differs a little bit, but it's a great restaurant that breaks the routine of the standard Lebanese food restaurants.
Very spacious with high ceiling, which is ideal since smoking indoors is allowed. However "smoking" and "non-smoking" sections are not separated.

A lot of signature dishes on the menu, including variations of the hummus, spicy kebbe and kebbe with walnuts and pomegranate, which have a very rich taste.

The service is most of the times slow, and waiters rush and throw plates in the middle of the table (probably similar to most Lebanese food restaurants).

One time, the service was extremely slow and the food took about 50 minutes to arrive. When we complained, the manager attended to us and offered us dessert on the house. The gesture was much appreciated, but we had to stay for 3 hours there.

8/10 would definitely recommend.
