The starter salad and aubergine dip/ paste (cant remember name) was excellent. The main course rice/chicken/mince was very nice as well as Shawarma. only the bread was not as soft as i would have liked... we had the whole restaurant to ourselves which we enjoyed!

good morning, writing as owner of Abou Khalil. Your comment is really far of the reality. Our food is fresh in the day asking about the food. Like the restaurant theme of cleaning, it's rare to believe becouse always is in perfect conditions. Greetings

The service is great and the food was quick to arrive! Everything we ordered was really good! It's a good place to go and enjoy some middle eastern food.

The best lebanese (halal) food in Barcelona. 33 years ago Miguel opened this amazing place. People who try the food say that there's no other place where you can eat as well as here.
