The place is too small. Food is overrated and too expensive. It's not set up for a proper dining and should be better informed for people to know what to expect so they are not disappointed

The food was amazing, for a select menu the chef really knows what foods complement each other. I usually hate tapas food but this was the exception to that rule.

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 centrepiece is our char grill rotisserie with freshly carved lamb and chicken on a spit. 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.
