AMAZING Moroccon Food – This restaurant was amazing!
The food was great and the service was amazing.
The outside of the restaurant may not look like much but the inside looks like a whole different place. It's almost like I just walked into Morocco.
I recommend this for anyone who wants an outstanding dinning experience and especially recommend the 50% off coupon.
Oh! Almost forgot to mention the belly dancers! Never thought I would learn to dance like that but with there help and my friends pushing me to the dance floor I got it down.
Great Moroccan food and entertainment!!!!! – My friends and i used a discount coupon at the restaurant that worked very well. The waiter was very cute and explained everything so my friends could know about the menu.The decor is very colorful w/ Morrocan rugs on the walls, a tent overhead, fancy lamps, beautiful lacquered tables The dancer was very good, she looked like she knew what she was doing, and then she read tarot cards and that added to the evening. that is included w/ the dinner---i just gave her a few dollars as a tip for being so sweet. The food was tasty as it was before---i love the lamb w/ honey. I have some friends in a bellydance class---i'll get them to come next week.
A Really Fun and Friendly Place – I went to Babouch for the first time last Tuesday and had a blast!! It was my friend's birthday, and she chose the place. We both live near San Pedro, and have heard about the restaurant, but never tried it before.
I just loved the decor!! Really unususal. The food was different, but really tasty. And then the belly dancer came. It was the blonde one,the one that is on the front page of their website. She was really engaging, and everybody in the restaurant got up to dance with her. It was a lot of fun!! We also got an amazing tarot card reading. I will be back..
Unforgettable Experience – So it was my birthday not too long ago and my father decided to surprise me by bringing me here, Babouch Restaurant, It was such a great experience for me, it was quite surprising to know that a place that this is located in San Pedro. So just to share a bit of my experience at Babouch, first off they had such delicious food, it definitely had a different flavor from most food I've tried and that is what i liked most about it. It was my first time trying Rabbit and as unusual as it may sound it was delicious. The music, decorations, and entertainment(belly dancers) totally made me feel as if i had just stepped into a completely different part of the world. They provided very friendly customer service & even the palm/tarot card reader even made part of the night even more fun! I am so glad i got to spend my birthday at a place so great.From the food, entertainment,drinks and environment, it was overall fantastic! I would highly recommend Babouch to anyone looking for a good time and unforgettable experience!
Moroccan Fun! – I have been enjoying this restaurant on Saturday nights for many years. I love that they have both male and female dancers and tarot card readings. It is a fun place to go for that special date night or when have a group get-together.
Lady's night, great drinks and appetizers – I'm so happey I found this place. My friends at work took me there for my birthday on a Friday evening after work and I could not beleive such place ixist. It is like being in a different country with low inlaid dinning tables and velvet couchs like a Moroccan palace. the waitress recommended a sampler appetizer plate Mazza.It consisted of hummos and fresh baked bread, Dolma( stuffed grap leaves) Moroccan sausages, Spinach spanakopitas and Spicy beef wraped in filo dough. We spent the evening having more appetizers like shrimp in garlic celantro red sauce and chicken kabobs and mini beef kabobs.Ofcourse Moroccan beer and exotic coaktails like Pomagranit martini were apropriat for the ocasion.During our feasting the show started, Introduction by one of the waiters and nice music became more evident, a couple( a man and a woman) somehow appered in the middle of the dinning room where we were seated and performed some of the most beautiful moves I have ever seen. I was asked by the mail dancer to get up and dance I gess for my birthday, he tought me couple moves and why not. I realy enjoyed being there and look forward to going back with my famely.
Unforgettable Morroccan Dining & Entertainment Experience – If you're looking for a fun, unique, and unforgettable experience, this is the place to go! I'm the organizer for the Foodie Connection Meetup Group on Meetup and I had an event here recently, and everyone in my group had a complete blast. It was the best event I've ever had for my group,
So let me give this restaurant a proper review...
From the outside, you just wouldn't be able to tell what an incredible place this is. But as soon as you walk through the doors, it's like you're walking into Morrocco and suddenly you find yourself under a Morroccan tent decorated with rich and lavish carpeted walls, ceilings, and floors of beautiful Morroccan patterns and art. Little details and artifacts around the room like Morroccan bread baskets and Morroccan paintings gives the place a completeness and authenticity that is truly Morroccan, and brings your Morroccan dining experience to full circle. This place just exudes richness, beauty, and comfort. And when you sit down, you can feel it.
This restaurant has been around for over 30 years and to this day, the menu has remained the same. They are still preparing and serving the same Morroccan dishes of their original recipes that regulars here have grown to love. I had the rabbit meat with steamed vegetables and cous cous, which is Morroccan for "grits". I enjoyed it. Plus, they've got a full bar with a great selection of wines to pair your dinner with, or a variety of Morrocan & American beers and mixed drinks for you to let loose for the night and even party it down with the belly dancers. And here's the best part of all this. In these tough economic times, Babouch offers an incredible special to help people who have been hurt by the bad economy, but yet just can't resist dining out and indulging in the better pleasures of life... and it's called the "Stimulus Package" and for only $9.25, you get your choice of a main course, steamed vegetables, and cous cous. PLUS, a complimentary 10-minute tarot card reading and belly dancing! In my opinion, that is worth at least $20! This is the only place I know where you can get a bailout for getting yourself stimulized...
And now for the best part, the belly dancing! The entertainment here is excellent! With every meal, you get a free 10-minute tarot card or palm reading, and the psychics are very friendly. When the belly dancing is about to begin, lively Morroccan begins to play, and then belly dancers make a pretty majestic entrance. The belly dancers & waiters/waitresses are really great about setting the mood and getting everyone into a lively & festive mood. Throughout the belly dancing, guests will tip the belly dancers and some will get up and dance with them. Sometimes everyone in the room gets up and dances with the belly dancers, and that's when it starts to get really wild and crazy. And in case I haven't mentioned yet, FUN.
I dig this place, and I think it's an awesome place to have private parties like birthdays, or just to have a girls-night-out type of thing. I'm impressed by the richness of this place, the liveness of the entertainers, and the incredible deal with the "Stimulus Package". I think this restaurant provides an incredible Morroccan dining experience & entertainment extravanga night out whether you're going with a group of friends, or with a date, and the best thing of all...for the price of 2 cups of Starbucks coffee. Overall rating, 5-stars!
Amazing Moroccan Experience! – Moroccan cuisine has always been a mystery to me as I've never been to Morocco and never have tried any dishes. I'm part of a meetup group and they had a Moroccan event with Belly Dancers and Tarot Card Reading. I wonder what my fortune is. So I decided to attend and see what the Moroccan experience is all about.
Once I entered the front entrance, I felt immediately like I was in Morocco. The decor with various colored drapes and Moroccan castle like curves inside the restaurant, waiters dressed in clothes from the culture adds to that feel. It has 3 large rooms. We were able to reserve a large, more private area that seats over 40 people. Our event had over 40 and it was just the right fit.
Their specials are amazing. We took advantage of their Stimulus Package Special which was only $9.25 and includes dinner and show. WHAT A DEAL!!
They also have a nice bar with many signature cocktails and Moroccan beer.
For dinner, I ordered the special sea bass fish they had that night with Couscous. My friend had Rabbit. Both dishes were tasty. I tried the Moroccan beer as well. Nice and light.
Then on to the belly dancing show. I've never seen belly dancers dance before so I was excited. They had both a male and a female dancer. They were very skilled in their craft and did a great job of getting crowd participation. Many of us got up and actually danced with the dancers.
Tarot Card Reading was available as well. That's a nice treat. I'm sure many would love to know what lies ahead.
Overall, it was a very fun and enjoyable experience. I would definitely come back and bring a group of friends or even my family as there were family there to experience a bit of Morocco.
The best Moroccan food – A friend recommended Babouch for my brother's wedding rehersal dinner. We had a group of about 20 naturally we went to see the place first and sampel the food. We were taken by the ambiance and the exotic atmosphir. The manager was friendly and genrous, he planned the whole evenning for us and the food sampling was very delcious. Our evenning started with mezza platters delightful appetizers of Hummos and fresh baked bread, dolma, spicy cigars, Moroccan sausags, and spinach spanakopits. And tasty colerful coktails like Moroccan kiss and peach martinis. the dinner included lentil bean soup, Moroccan salad of marinated eggplant, tomatoes and carrots with baby greens, Bastilla chicken pie with powderd sugar and cinnamon. The main course was a banquet style combination of lamb with potatoes in garlic saffron sause, chicken with hony pruns almonds and sesame seeds and cous cous with mixed vegetables garbanzos and rasins. After dinner we were served refreshing hot mint tea and honey Moroccan pastre just right after a gig meal.During dinner the show started, the dancer's costum had wings like an angel's wings and she was very talanted with her moves. All and all we were very happy how the evening turned out and we will always have good memories of our special evening. We will be back.
Fantastic experience – I took my family to Babouch to try moroccan food for the first time. We did not know what to expect. But we were pleasantly surprised when we first went in the decor is tent like atmosphir with tapastries on the walls. We ordered the Babouch feast which is a varaiety of dishes: Lamb, chicken, beef kabob, cous cous and more. The food was very tasty and well prepared specially the freshbacked Moroccan bread. In the middle of the dinner the show was announced and what a show, a man and a woman performed Belly dancing to beautifull music and we were asked to participat and we did. It was the most fun we had in a long time. I must add the prices were very reasonable for a six course dinner and a show $26.00 per person is a great deal and with the coupon on there web site is half price. We will diffenitly go back to Babouc for more fun and good food.
