Must try Guenat's

First time in Martiques. Trip advisor good reviews. Great friendly service. Menu in French. Waiters speak English. Ordered 1 plate Vegetarian and 1 chef special, large servings and top quality Lebanese/Armenian food. 1 non alcohol mojito, 1 mineral water plus dessert to share $47 Euros. Excellent.

We had a great meal at Guénat's. That wasn't evident because of the market and the performance at that moment. The terrace was crowded and people kept coming and going. Nevertheless all staff kept going and they kept their good mood. Food was delicious and the Lebanese wine was a fine discovery.

Perfect location on a small square between small authentic french city-houses. Very friendly staff and good food. They even speak english without rolling their eyes at you (rare in France)

We happened across this restaurant while visiting the food market in martigues. We didnt have high expectations as its tucked in the middle of generic looking brasserie type outlets. However the food was the best on our holiday. I havent eaten Lebanese before, but it was an excellent experience. Very similar to eating Tapas, but a bit more exciting. Thoroughly... More

I had nevet tasted libanese/armenian cuisine before so this was my first experience. I ordered the vegetarian assiette for 16€ and I couldn't be more satisfied. There were a lot of different dishes so I got to taste more than one flavor and each one was delicious. Also the mojito (classical or with strawberry flavor) was great. the staff was... More

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and could not have been happier. We had two vegetarians with us, who were thrilled to find delicious vegetarian fare besides cheese and eggs in France. ;) The waiter was super nice, the setting was great and we LOVED the food and wine.

The location of the resto is very convenient. We could see there were many locals having their lunch. A menu offers a good choice of non-alcoholic and alcoholic cocktails. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. Some vegan options are available upon request. A lunch for 2 persons with drinks was about 37 euros.

We spent one year in France and, during that period, Guenat's became one of our favourite restaurants. The staff is always friendly, the prices are low and the food is awesome!!! We miss this place a lot... Really recommended if you like libanese cuisine or if, like us, you want to try it for the first time: you will fall... More

I have been to Guenats at least 5 times in the last few months and it is always awesome. The food is well prepared and plenty and the atmosphere is unmatched. The owner is pretty much all one family and they all treat their guests like that too. They constantly walk around and make sure everything is perfect and the... More
