I went to Baalbek restaurant with a friend. I am vegetarian. The owner himself assisted me in choosing the right food. The variety was astonishing, the service impeccable, the food delicious in every bite!
A number of Middle Eastern sweets were nicely presented. The baklava was tremendous!
A cup of Turkish coffee to follow!! It was simply a great experience!

This is an attractive small restaurant with very good food. Depending on your point of view, the owner is attentive and hospitable or something akin to a car salesman. Resist the owner's attempts to get you to order everything on the menu. Order what you think you can eat. The dishes don't take long to prepare so you can always order more.

We have been there only once so far but that taste makes us eager to come back. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the service is great. The food is excellent and very true to its Lebanese roots. Highly recommend.

I am from Quito but live in the US. Some local friends recommended us this place last December and to my surprise I found this cozy restaurant is a one little gem in the center of the city. The food is excellent, nicely presented in small plates to share (as suggested by the owner), the belly dancing show is impressive and the service is great, not only from the young waiters but specially of the owner who visited every table suggesting the different house specialties (hommus, falafel, eggplants stew and baklawa ice cream are simply delicious!). Give a try to the mint lemonade. It was so tasty and refreshing! Mr. Hayek, the owner, is very friendly and made all of us feel as special guests. I noticed that not only local people were at the restaurant but also large groups of tourists who looked really pleased at this place. I highly recommend Baalbek to everyone visiting my city.

What a pleasant surprise to find 1) such a beautiful restaurant with 2) an absolutely and accommodating owner 3) the speediest, most pleasant service EVER 4) Lebanese food in Ecuador!
We loved it all - the ambiance, the beautifully presented food, the delightful staff. A real treat, if pricey.
