“WOW - meal was fantastic! We will be back!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

I've never submitted a travel review, but always refer to tripadvisor when I travel. So I had to figure out how to get on this site and post our review of this great new restaurant! We have a vacation home in SPI and are always looking for great places to eat that have a menu beyond your typical "fried shrimp/fish" or Burgers! If you are looking for fresh, tasty, incredible food, you have got to stop in to Yalla Habibi. Its a new "mediterranean/lebanese" restaurant (think it opened in May or June?) and family run (we met the sister, brother and mother - they all work there and the service was great!). We ordered several items (Greek Salad, Hummus, Gyros, cabbage rolls, empanadas - wanted to try a wide variety....they even had a pizza and pasta that a family next to us had - so there are options for anybody that doesnt want the "mediterranean" style food.) and we would have all licked our plates clean if we could have. We are from Dallas, so used to having great meal options - this spot in SPI ranks right up there with our favorite Mediterranean spots here at home!! Its open for breakfast and dinner as well (we ate lunch there, but will be back for sure to try the breakfast menu!). They have a bakery section that had some really good looking items - but we were way too full from our lunch spread to give it a try! next time for sure!!! bottom line.......... don't leave the island without giving this place a try! we ate there the last day of our stay this past week, but next trip we will start out the vacation eating here for sure!

“A refreshing change in cuisine for SPI”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

So nice to have a healthy but delicious dining choice on the island. The hummus is outstanding. Service was superb. Atmosphere is casual and relaxing. Can't wait to go back.

We had the hummus(yum!), Lebanese plate, Cabbage Rolls, beef empanadas and spinach empanadas. Great food and friendly service. No liquor license yet so bring your own wine or beer. Packed house on Friday.

“Mouth watering food”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Great friendly environment to hang out with your friends and kids to enjoy mouth watering food. Awesome bakery, made fresh daily. Family owned business, its real home cooking at its best. Great location to enjoy the fireworks or bring your own bottle of wine and relax.
