This was my second Armenian cuisine meal in Beirut. The menu is diverse and the food quality is good but the place is a bit disorganized. The same applies to the service, waiting seems to be daily-business - I suggest you book in advance.

It was very good. The service was fast but not intrusive. The food was interesting. I had two workmates from Beirut order and I wasn't disappointed.

The food selection was pleasantly different to what I am used to seeing. The cuisine is Lebanese and Armenian. I found the Armenian dishes particularly good, if somewhat strange. The service was also excellent with very friendly staff, who were great at explaining all the dishes and even suggesting their favourites. Will definitely go back when Im in the area.

We came here for dinner and loved it so much we returned for lunch 2 days later. The service is great, the wine awesome, and the food is delectable. Everything is tasty, and dessert complementary. Really enjoyed the Armenian dishes, as well as the Lebanese ones. Portions are a little small, but just order more dishes!

very nice place to have an Armenian dish. However, the portions are a bit small and overpriced. The service is excellent and the ambiance perfect. Worth a try.

For the first time, I got to try Onno's new outlet. The setup is as beautiful and relaxing as their Badaro outlet and the service is as good. Cold appetizers started arriving. From the hummus, to the moutabbal, mouhammara, Armenian salad, fattoush, dolma... Everything was very delicious and fresh. The hummus with snoubar, kebbet adas, batata harra, soujouk and basterma...

I visited the Onno Bistro in Hamra. The restaurant was really busy on a Friday night. It has a great atmosphere. I can say that the food was excellent, and I left quite full. The only downside was that I thought the service could have been better. I recall having a bit of a problem with my bill.

We had a nice gathering with an old group of friends and made it a point to meet in Onno since everyone seems to be talking about how good it was. The word-of-mouth definitely did well this time.. Their menu if wide and varied and covers pretty much i'd expect from an Armenians restaurant having had many great Armenian meals... More
