Description: Nuestra pasion familiar: Corria el ano 1918 y el abuelo Moises inicio sin proponerselo, una larga pasion gastronomica al fundar en el centro de Constantinopla el afamado Restaurante "La Paz". Alli diseno un menu siguiendo las milenarias recetas que le transmitio su madre y que recopilo de viejas bibliotecas orientales. Esas recetas fueron celosamente custodiadas a traves de los anos en las rutas del exilio y aprehendidas por Garbis antes de emprender el viaje que lo traeria a las costas del Rio de la Plata. Los descendientes del abuelo Moises, de la mano de Garbis, reinstalaron en Argentina esa tradicion gastronomica con deliciosos platos basados en las antiguas recetas familiares, algunas de las cuales tienen mas de mil anos de antiguedad. Y esta familia ofrece hoy con orgullo mas de 100 platos tipicos para ser saboreados en sus calidos y amenos locales, respetando y compartiendo con ustedes las legendarias formulas del placer oriental. Los invitamos a participar de una aventura diferente. Bienvenidos a nuestra pasion familiar.

“Great arabic food in Bs As!”
Reviewed 26 October 2012

If you like arabic and armenian food, this is the place for you! incredible variety of dishes, very good quality, very good service, and if you have kids it has a very nice space with nannies and lots of games. The only problem: it became too expensive.

“Armenian influence in a Spanish environment”
Reviewed 9 May 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed this meal. The entree of Mahamara ( Puree red peppers and walnuts ) was a flavorsome contrast with the local breads. Followed up with Shish Kebab De Cordero ( Brochette of lamb marinated, accompanied with grilled vegetables and potato cube.) were delicious. While the lamb was full of flavor and juice it was a little firmer than I would have liked. Overall the food and service was very good. One thing that did impress me was that the service while very attentive was not intrusive and this makes the whole experience even more enjoyable. Very happy to go back and try something else.

“Great food and outstanding service”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Absolutely love this place. You have the choice of eating a la carte or ordering from the All You Can Eat menu, which is definitely your best bet. The restaurant offers an eclectic variety of Middle Eastern flavors and I have yet to have a mediocre entrée. Their gefilte fish is absolutely wonderful and so is the raw kibbeh. I´m not a dessert person, but for most of my friends, the best thing about the restaurant is the assortment of phylo pastries that awaits. Everything is fresh. You must try the chicken shish kabobs.
