Ever since Babel opened its doors in Dbaye long time ago, I dreamed to have my engagement dinner there. The set up is so mesmerizing that you forget you are in Lebanon and you start imagining your self in luxurious castle. The service there spoils you to an extent you get so pampered that you don't want your night to... More

Babel is an impressive restaurant in Dbayeh. They have an atypical menu where Lebanese food is presented in a modern way and unusual flavours are combined to offer something new. That's definitely not something I like, as I think they're actually ruining flavours instead of enhancing them.

The best restaurant in Lebanon.... The food is very tasty and various options and the quantities are huge.... By far my favorite plate is "Eshta bel Eshta" desert there is nothing like it....... Its yet not a budget restaurant but its worth each cent paid.

After the hassle on the road and the 90 minutes spent on traffic and dilemma of following GPS directions we enjoyed the experience with my family again from food till service. Very nice menu...
