We went there for supper and were attended by Oscar the the owner. The ambience was greatly relaxed and the music was excellent. The food was excellent and the prices really low. The owner was very interactive with us and we thoroughly enjoyed his company!

My favourite meal in all of Europe. Some English spoken. The Zaaluk and Pastela was really good. Atmosphere is quaint and homely.

Had both lunch and dinner in this small friendly place right on the Main Street up To the old town. Our host, server, and bar tender was very gracious and accommodating. It can be hard to find a calm setting and this offers a refreshing change from typical Spanish and tourist food.

Everything we ordered was so good that we ate every last bite, even though we were stuffed. Our waiter (one of the owners) was warm and friendly, and a good portion of the menu was vegan. We'll definitely return next time were in Spain.

This small restaurant serves Arabic style dishes, many of which are meant to share by all around the dinner table. Good, honest food in an enjoyable atmosphere with friendly staff. Recommended.

I had never had Moroccan food prior to this experience, and was skeptical since I am a picky eater. However, my traveling companions wanted to eat here, so I joined. Let me tell you, I am a huge fan! I had no other Moroccan food to compare it to, but this food was DELICIOUS. I could not stop eating...the rice,... More

Four of us showed up on a Saturday evening and it was very busy. The kind gentlemen made sure we had a seat and took our order thoroughly.. The food came out promptly and it was very nice and fresh. Once our meals were finished we were give a refreshing shot drink which was lovely! Reasonably priced too! ☺️

Thoroughly enjoyed a superb meal here. Great, non intrusive but friendly service. Food was excellent. Rounded off with a complementary liqueur. Will return if we visit here again. Gracias. Highly recommended.

Delicious food at a reasonable price. We tried several restaurants during our 2 days (3 meals) in Arcos, and Babel was by far the best. Had the hummus and eggplant appetizers, followed by the chicken tagine (fall off the bone tender, great flavor, large portion) and the kofta kebab (tender and so flavorful). We had a nice conversation with the... More
