Amazing Experience!

The setting is great... in an old house amid a busy city like Achrafieh. The authentic Armenian food is excellent. Please note that you have to reserve early because it is usually fully booked.

This is a great place by itself. Nice old house refitted into restaurant. Friendly staff will guide you to order the best cocktail of Armenian specialties. Excellent food and atmosphere.

despite that Mayrig is one of the best Armenian/lebanese restaurant in Lebanon, the fusion between traditional Armenian and Lebanese authentic dishes made of the menu and tastes very rich and creative. Very very expensive which made my overall rating low.

If you thought you've tried good lebanese food before, you'll see how wrong you were when you come and eat here. The restaurant is armenian-lebanese, so you'll get the best of both cuisines. Things like Haygagan salad (Taboule and fatoush mixed) Zeitun salad (green olives and tomatoes) and my favorite

If you want to try armenian food, you re at the right place. Premium food served with quality products and nice presentation. The place is very nice and the staff is very professional. A bit expensive but definitely worth it with the quality and the atmosphere provided. I highly recommend!

Traditional Armenian food was pretty good but pricey - about $135 for four people and one bottle of wine. There is a non-smoking section!!!!

A nice place with decent Armenian fare. The service is excellent and the atmosphere lively. After dinner take a stroll to Mar Mikhael and it's many bars for a drink while you digest.

I have never had Armenian food until this dinner at Mayrig on my last night in Beirut. I have dined at many restaurants all over the world and this is my best dinner ever. The food kept coming and all very tasty. I normally do not eat desert but at Mayrig I did. The best! If you are visiting Beirut... More

Don't look any further you found it. Nice interior, quite busy but enough staff who are all multilingual, attentive and knowledgeable to explain what the dishes are. The price - quality balance is excellent and last but not least the dishes are varied and well prepared. What's there not to love ? Book your table because it can get quite... More
