There’s no shortage of Lebanese restaurants in the capital, and Barouk offers all the classic dishes that this cuisine has to offer. You’ll be greeted warmly upon arrival here, and led into a dimly-lit dining where each table basks in the light of red lamps. A stage area is equipped with musical instruments for later at night when the place gets a little more vibrant with Lebanese music. The menu consists of the expected hot and cold mezze options, grilled and fried meats, but with the addition of a few pizzas. Barouk is worth a
try if you find yourself hankering after Lebanese food on Yas Island.

We were two couples visiting the restaurant for dinner, the location is nice, the outdoor area is much better than the indoor, especially for shisha, As this restaurant is marketed as Lebanese restaurant, the menu of the food was poor compared to other location even from lower star rating, in addition, the beverage (Hot and Cold) it doesn’t match any Lebanese restaurant The menu of the food can be spilt to three parts: Appetites, Main course, and Desert, the menu got reach variety of food, however, the main course got only the variety of Grilled stuff, desert got the most popular choices, although some of desert were not available Service side, the people who were serving us were very friendly, however, it seems those people were untrained properly, as we have asked to connect two tables, but we have pulled the table and adjust the lags by our self, as they didn’t even ask us to give a hand, unfortunately I felt I’m not welcomed and everything I ask as favor, which I believe this is against the hospitality concern The price we paid was more than 1000 AED, the rate is fare enough if the service the food met Crowne Plaza reputation, but I got better food and better service with cheaper price in some other places, I don’t recommend this restaurant to be visited

  • Best for: Brunch served
  • Would you go back to this restaurant? Yes

the appetizers was really great but i will give 7 out of 10 for the barbecue , i recommend it for lunch or for dinner but before the belly dancer show, because the music so loud, you barely can listen to your companion.
the Shisha was so good too.

As a vegetarian firstly I would not recommend this restaurant. The decor is nothing spectacular and the service was abysmal. The flat bread arrived straight from the fridge and the fatuoush was drenched in balsamic vinegar, hardly authentic. When we asked for chilli sauce, expecting a home made fair, I was disappointed when a bottle of tobacco was plonked down on our table. There were no vegetarian main meals on offer and there was also a distinct absence of falafel from the hot mezze menu which most vegetarians rely upon as part of their Lebanese meal.

My husband and I werealso unable to speak throughout the meal due to the extra loud music and belly dancer that were present on the night, but thatbin itself is a personal choice. Notwithstanding that I would not advise anyone to visit this restaurant for a romantic vegetarian meal, you will be gigot disappointed.
