Ive been reading a book where the main character lives in the Persian Empire and eats dry foods because its hard to find fresh food in the desert. So I decided to go for the "pilav a la persa" and it was even better than I imagined in the book. It doesn't look like much, but trust me its mouth... More

We were greeted by the owners, young an very welcoming. Initially were treated by a nice mezze (hors d'ouvre) and after I had a ricotta Boereg that was one of the most delightful dishes I have had in months. My wife had a "cordero (lamb) a la miel that she enjoyied. And in the end we shared a nice orange... More

I have been going to Garní for several years, up to twice a month, and I have yet to have a disappointment. The food starts with very carefully selected ingredients, which is key for someone like us, who grow our own vegetables. The traditional Armenian and Mediterranean fare and occasional riffs on it is well executed and extremely tasty. The... More

This restaurant is a hidden diamond ! Located about 30 minutes from Punta del Este, Garni is one of the best restaurants in the region. The ambiance is not a fancy one. The restaurant is a bit rustic but beautiful. The service is great and the food is outstanding . I would recommend making a reservation . This restaurant is... More

It's been years coming to Maldonado and even Punta del Este looking for "that " restaurant that challenges your senses. We finally found it in Solis, way closer to Montevideo. Middle Eastern dishes cooked to perfection but that's just the beginning. The ambiance and the Service are also 5 stars; I haven't had such level of service in Punta del... More

My family and I really enjoyed dinner, the food and the service are the excellent. Delicious starters, mouth watering main dishes and unforgettable desserts. Reasonable prices. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten free choices. Definitely one of the best.

Ethnic food is not that ubiquitous in Uruguay. There are some Armenian restaurants in Montevideo but most of the fast food / lehmeyun variety. Garni is a very nice restaurant with tablecloths and nice ambiance and prices are moderate because of their location in Solis, a low key resort between Montevideo and Punta del Este. There is quite a variety... More

I had dinner at Garni with my extended family last week while at the beach in Punta del Este. The place was suggested to us by an Armenian girl we met in Punta. The restaurant leaved up to our expectation. Our server was very attentive and very knowledgeable about the dishes. He accommodated our requests very professionally. The food was... More

Found this place randomly on Foursquare and could not be happier! The menu is full of options but none will disappoint. I've been here twice and all we've had was amazing, although the Honey Lamb was definitely the high point. Hummus is complimentary and tasted great too. For dessert we went with the phyllo pastry with citrus custard and it... More
