I come here often with friends and work colleagues and we are never disappointed. Food is excellent, the restaurant is cozy and beautiful, and service is consistently good. Highly recommend the Kebbe selection, sou beureg and balata harra.

The restaurant is located in the heart of gemmayze in Beirut. The food is tasty and very clean. Waiters are very friendly and the atmosphere is wonderful. Very small portions comparing to the price , consider making them bigger otherwise everything was PERFECT!

I ate there 3 times. Each time i recieved a warm welcome and a great service from the staff. I tried 4 of their maincources and half a dozen of their hot and cold apetizers and absolutely loved them the shish barak was from another world. Other items on the menu looked really delicious.

Nothing special about this place. I was disillusioned with the good reviews. Overpriced small portions. A tourist trap at best.

Went out with friends - four adults and two children. Made a reservation for six people, however when we arrived the waiter brought us to a table for four people and added two more plates. The waiters were a bit pretentious. The music was unbearable. The entrees were excellent! The sour cherry sauce on the kebab was delicious. But the... More

For me, it was honestly the first time trying Armenian food. It was a good experience and Mayrig surely gives that cosy-Armenian setting. Despite having the wrong order put on our table, it was resolved quite swiftly by the friendly staff at Mayrig. The food is good but the atmosphere is what, in my opinion makes Mayrig a good restaurant.... More
