The other reviewers aren’t lying. This little “boutique” restaurant is fabulous. The food is amazing, staff are wonderful. We had the 3 stage chef selection and were so glad we did. We had a little bit of so many different dishes...don’t be mistaken, these are...More

It's a small place so bookings are almost always needed but the food is always good and we've never had a bad meal here.

Great service, our waiter was very attentive. We loved when the chef’s served our food, and took the time to explain the dish. The wine, falafael and lamb were also amazing!

Hello David, we are fully licenced. Our wines have been carefully selected to pair with our Lebanese cuisine. That is why we do not encourage BYO. Yes, we are open Sunday evenings :) Hope this helps. Warmest regards, Patrick

Description
Rabbath is the making of a life long dream to bring authentic Lebanese cuisine to the Gold Coast. Our love for cooking started from an early age and is greatly influenced by the family heritage. Our hope is to share this passion with the community through our bistro. Rabbath is an intimate setting that features a large communal table where guests can experience our culture of sharing mezzé style platters. We believe that a great meal is made through sharing of food, drinks and laughs. Our menu is made from fresh local ingredients and family recipes. Our authentic tabouleh and hoummus recipe makes dining at Rabbath a truly unique experience. Our menu is complimented with an extensive wine list, Lebanese style cocktails and hand crafted soft drinks. Finally, we offer traditional Lebanese desserts paired with our own artisan coffee, locally roasted in Burleigh Heads. We have two sittings, at 5:45pm and 8:15pm. Best to book as seats are very limited, especially Fridays and Saturdays.
