Honestly, we don't understand the bad reviews.....unless these folks went on an off night, or they ordered very different food than we did, the bad reviews just don't make any sense. We love to cook and are very adventurous, self-admitted food snobs. We've had the opportunity to eat at some amazing Lebanese & Turkish restaurants before this, so we weren't honestly expecting much. Just looking for a change from all the wonderful traditional French food we had been consuming lately. So, we assumed this Armenian food would not be all that authentic - ethnic food modified, as-usual, for the French palate. But, we couldn't have been more wrong! This place was fabulous. Food was great - authentically seasoned and presented. Appetizers ("entrees" in French) were quite large. Absolutely the best Baba Ghanoush (known as "Caviar d'Aubergines" in French or "Mutabal" in Armenian) we've had in a long time.....we could taste the smoke from the charring process of the eggplants, and that's exactly how it should be!! Tabouli, hummus & falafel all great too! Main entrees (lamb, okra and tomato stew (called "bamia") and spiced, ground lamb in tomato sauce (called "keufta")) were very fresh and also perfectly seasoned. Service was very attentive and very friendly. Food was prepared/served quite fast. When we left with our doggy bags, they threw in some extra pita bread for us without us requesting it. And, they were kind to our 10-year-old daughter too - letting her choose a sucker ("bonbon" in French) from a huge bucket that they have just for kids. If we lived here, we would be frequent patrons for sure!!
Not as great as others say. So-so standard mediterranean fare. Fried items were super fried and heavy. Even the hummus was meh (!). I will say that the service was very friendly, but a tad slow. Definitely overpriced for what it is for dinner, might be a better value for lunch. Ambience was nice, which is what I guess one is paying for.
I really enjoyed this restaurant. It is placed in the beautiful Forum de Cardeurs. If the weather is nice the terrace is a beautiful place to be. I went there for lunch and opted for the Menu Express. Before the food, I got some olives, tasty. Then the big dish came, with two brochettes of lamb and several side dishes including some sweet rice, taboule, a sauce made of yogurt and a salty pastry. Really yummy. And to finish two traditional sweet pastries and some mint tea
