We had lunch in this cozy restaurant during our stay in Beirut. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the restaurant very clean and well decorated. We ordered some dolma, lentils salad, stuffed eggplants in tomato sauce, beef tartines with quail eggs and a apricot pudding as dessert. The food was very good, with that authentic Armenian twist.

Dinner outdoors on the patio on a warm Beirut evening. Excellent regional food with good service and atmosphere. First time we had eaten at an armenian restuarant and we were not disappointed.

Probably some of the best Armenian food, and for that purpose, any kind of cuisine in Beirut. The restaurant offers traditional Armenian dishes in a nice setting with Levantine decor. The manti (dumplings) and muhammara (walnut paste with paprika) and after-coffee crescent cookies are to die for!!

It's a good experience to try their special dishes done in Armenian cuisine way...such as kebab with cherry and many other items...I didn't like the sweet and salty mix in their food...it's a matter of taste...good service...nice setting

Very nice setting, alas, it is reserved for the smoking area. But at least no Arjeeleh! Lebanon in general is turning to a big smoking place and over priced. So taking these points aside, the food is good and service is friendly. Their ice cream is homemade and tastes really good.

This restaurant has a charming homey feeling. With a choice to dine in a wonderful little garden terrace or in a beautiful seating area inside. The staff are so friendly and willing to make suggestions for first timers like ourselves. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend the spicy potato dish and their fresh... More
