Babel Bay

Traditional Lebanese cuisine gets a maritime update

A haven for the food lover with a sophisticated palate, Babel Bay’s menu offers an innovate fusion of traditional Lebanese dishes and seafood. Located in Beirut’s Zeitounay Bay, the restaurant’s design makes a striking first impression – the eating area is enclosed by a towering setup of stone blocks from where an arresting display of lights emanate. The bar is stocked full of premium brands. A reconstruction of Beirut’s skyline looms overhead. The place is deal for a romantic evening out or a business dinner to impress clients.

But the principle appeal of the restaurant is the food: Hindbeh gets an upgrade with calamari pieces, Shawarma is served with fish, and an unconventional seafood backlava gets extra points for creativity. Traditional fattouch is served with calamari and shrimp. The fruits and seafood salad is sure to astonish the senses, it includes a plate of apples, citrus, octopus and scallops – an exceptional mix of sweet and salty. Signature appetizers include seaweed pickles and mafrouket tajen. The restaurant also serves a variation of carefully prepared raw fish, a rarity in Lebanon.

No seafood restaurant is complete without a variety of grilled fish, the harra Beyrouti is especially succulent with tomato and pepper. The fish kibbeh made with octopus, and the fish fatteh is also a popular. For dessert, Babel Bay has a sweet selection of ashta ice cream.

Patrons typically have great things to say about the service, which is efficient and friendly.

It goes without saying, Babel Bay caters to seafood lovers in particular. Shisha is permitted indoors.
