    OLD (Y)EREVAN RESTAURANT: A BIT OF PAGEANTRY

    For some reason the entrance to this interesting restaurant looks like an expensive clothing boutique or upscale bookshop. The restaurant is actually upstairs. This massive entrance room has pictures of some of the many famous celebrities and politicians who have dinned here and the obligatory coat check. Upstairs is the ornate dinning hall decorated with traditional art, crafts and even representations of food. Definitely picturesque. The service was friendly, prices reasonable and the beer cold.

    I found the Khashlama (stew) a bit watery, but good. The vodka served was warm and they are a little unsure about when to bring out the rice. The cool part was when the musicians appeared from nowhere and put on a great show.

    If you had just one night in Yerevan, this would not be a bad choice just for the atmosphere and décor. The food is ok at an ok price. It’s also very easy to find, so enjoy!

    Favorite Dish:
    I had the ‘Yerevan Lights’ for a starter. This is a tasty stew with chicken, pork, potatoes, green beans, peppers served in a tomato based broth. Delicious. My main meal was Khashlama – a stew made with lamb in either beer or wine. Not sure, the menu was unsure, but I am assured that chef poured some alcohol into it. Maybe himself instead and/or in addition to my food.

    I washed it all down with an indifferent tasting Kotayk and warm vodka.

    Warm vodka....

    BUKHARA: CLOSED ! IN 2010

    by DAO Written Aug 26, 2012

    CLOSED !

    Although this place is in some guide books, an there is a VT tip extolling its virtues in 2011, I can assure you this derelict looking door was the entrance to this now closed restaurant. And this photo was taken by me in 2010! It was once a wonderful sounding Uzbek restaurant. I spoke to the bar next door (red lights to the left) and they said it had been closed for some time. I went looking for it because I wanted to eat there. At least one VT member things they did. Hmmm, there is a bar next door....

    Sorry.

    Sushi Toria / Pizza Toria: Check out these two great restaurants

    by RobertoS9 Written Jul 24, 2012

    Sushi toria and Pizza toria are two resturants of one chain. They really serve the best sushi at fair prices in Yerevan on Bayron street sushi toria restaurant and have the real italian pizza in wood oven made by Italian chef on Tumanyan street.
    Both restaurants have amazing authentic interior and are really family restaurants. The service is really beautiful in both restaurants.

    Good food, great service and nice atmosphere - what else are we expecting from a restaurant??
    All the five stars!!!

    Favorite Dish: 1. Tobiko wasabi in Sushitoria
    2. Capriciosa pizza and Ossobuko in Pizzatoria

    Marco Polo: Pavement cafe

    There are plenty of pavement cafes and restaurants in Yerevan. I had a couple of meals in the cafe Marco Polo. It had a wide selection of both local and international meals. The food was of good quality and reasonably priced. The service was good too. It's situated just off Republic Square and is a great place to relax and watch the world go by.

    The Club: The best food and friendliest service in Yerevan

    by TTontherun Written Jun 5, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the most amazing of any places, save museums and old churches, we've been to in Yerevan. It's a little hard to find and even harder to describe. It's a craft shop with books and music, restaurant, cafe, tea room, exhibit space, all in a basement with untouched walls and wooden floors. Even bathrooms are unique - one of them has a faucet i have never seen before, you have to push the spout up to get and keep the water flowing. And the staff is so friendly, it felt like we knew everyone from before. Absolutely fantastic.

    Favorite Dish: I had a dish with a strange name, which was translated to me as the Priest Lost His Mind - it's made of aubergine with minced meat. The story is that when a village priest ate it, it was so good, he lost his mind. It was indeed. I also had the yogurt soup - Spas. Very-very satisfying.
    My companion order onion soup and lamb shank with veggies, which was heavenly - I tried a piece - it melted in my mouth. Onion soup looked delicious as well but I didn't try it.

    One of the most comfortable places we visited in Yerevan. The atmosphere is light and airy, the colors are bright and cheery and the music is just right... not too loud!!!! We loved the way the staff greeted us, tons of smiles and an overall happy ambiance.

    Favorite Dish: The burgers were authentic American.... yummm.... their homemade thousand island sauce was a hit with our group.

  • City Diner, Yerevan: One of the best eating experiences I had!

    by sunshineray Updated Apr 4, 2011

    City Diner has really captured the feel of the old '50s style diners. You walk in and the rock and roll music is playing, it's bright, cheerful and full of fun diner memorabilia... I had a blast walking around and finding licence plates from all the states I had traveled to. I was impressed with the food... very authentic and delicious!!!!

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dishe???? Chicken Caesar and the Bacon Cheeseburger.... washed down with a strawberry banana shake...Yummmmmm

    Afrikyanneri Pandok: Real Armenian cuisine

    by GeoV Updated Nov 21, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel staff when we asked about the best places for authentic Armenian food, (after lengthy discussions about the ingredients we needed to take home to attempt cooking things ourselves). This certainly is not the case of an hotel pointing you in the direction of their favoured restaurant - our experiences of the place suggest everything they serve will taste as genuine Armenian food should. Although it's not far from the city centre, the recommendation was particularly useful as it's not really somewhere you would stumble upon by accident. I won't detail what was available on the extensive menu, if you are in any doubt about what to try, the proprietor, Artur, will be happy to explain and make suggestions. (There's not really any communication difficulty but he's the man to ask for anyway.) On one of our visits, there was live Armenian music - as authentic as the food and provided for a large group of Armenians. It's worth calling in advance (or getting your hotel to do so) as the restaurant is obviously popular with the locals and can get busy. Virtually all the food we ate in Yerevan was good quality but this restaurant served the very best of it - and at a remarkably reasonable price.

  • ETNA Restaurant Complex: Beautiful space, terrible management

    by dp123 Written Jun 21, 2009

    This restaurant complex has very nice outdoor space, but the big issue is the management. We planned a party there and were given the run around on prices and services offered. From reserving the space until finalization, the prices changed greatly. This was blamed on prior management, but it was clear that the current managers were taking advantage of the situation.

    We finalized the menu and costs a week before the event, but during the event we were told that it would actually be close to 20% more because of "miscalculations" on their part. Very clever...announce the extra charges during the event itself so their is little time or will to argue (to avoid affecting the event itself) and of course their was an implied threat to continuation of the event if we did not agree to the charges.

    They also made us pay for dinner for the house band, something that was never discussed during the finalization. The ultimate hidden fee, however, was for use of the microphone when the band wasn't playing. The fee was not mentioned when we ensured there was a sound system for use and the reason for the charge was that "most groups bring their own microphones." HUH? I find that hard to believe...

    In summary, decent enough place, but out of principle I can never go there again nor would I recommend it to anyone else. I can not support any place with such horrible business practices and thuggish managers.

  • Jazzve: Amazing night time cafe

    by azatuhi Written Apr 14, 2009

    Yerevan is full of cafes open until 2 or 3 in the morning, all jam packed with diaspora Armenians and Yerevantsis. The diaspora especially fills up the city in August, when the Pan-Armenian games are held. That was the time that I went to Jazzve, a delightful outdoor cafe with delicious dessert. They did look at me like I have 3 heads when I asked for milk with my Earl Grey, but otherwise it's amazing. Armenia has the best ice cream in the world, and it's perfect for a summer night. I got a dish that was crepes (blini) filled with icecream. Out of this world delicious. A side note, in case you don't speak Armenian, the back of the waiters' shirts say "Hima Kgam", which means, loosely "I'll be right with you". An amusing joke :).

    Camelot Cafe and Restaurant: Decent Restaurant in Yerevan

    by Greatwalk0 Written Oct 13, 2008
    The Camelot Crest

    I stumbled into Camelot because I couldn't find any other restaurant in Yerevan at night that looked appetizing. I was not overwhelmed by Camelot's quality, but it was decent. The interior is pretty standard post-Soviet fare - which a large flat screen TV (playing Model TV), a large bar, and small dinner tables. I had the "Armenian Pizza," which was essentially pepporoni and mushroom pizza without tomato sauce. The prices on the menu were all reasonable and the person who I went with had some excellent looking pork barbeque.

    Service was prompt and friendly and the menu is translated into English, which was nice. Though I probably would not go back, I did generally enjoy the experience.

    Favorite Dish: Pork Barbeque

    Kavkaz: Amazing Caucasian Cuisine! Best in Yerevan

    by Greatwalk0 Written Oct 13, 2008
    Caucasus Tavern (Kavkaz)
    1 more image

    Kavkaz Restaurant is one of those rare finds that is both inexpensive and excellent. Come here for an authentic Armenian (or Georgian) dinner. The interior of the restaurant is decorated in a traditional rural Armenian decor, with the wait staff dressed in traditional outfits. I found the service to be excellent (which is rare in Yerevan - many of whose restaurants seem to maintain a Soviet-level of service).

    Now to the menu: It's comprehensive! Both of the nights I went there, we ate lamb, chicken, and pork barbeque (all of which was excellent) for the main dish and started with a nice home-made hummus (not indigenous to Armenia, but still good) and Lahvosh (can't visit Armenia and not eat Lahvosh - the traditional thin bread). Perhaps the highlight though is Kavkaz's Boereg - a cheese-stuffed bread dish, which tastes a bit like the most savory cheese pizza you have ever had, but even better. All in all, it's hard to go wrong at this restaurant, whose menu is also in English (BIG plus!).

    Don't leave dinner at Kavkaz without trying either their mulberry or apricot vodkas. Cheap and excellent!

    Please -- do yourself a favor and visit this fantastic restaurant when visiting Yerevan.

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Want an easy lunch. There are a couple of places to get a quick lunch here and it tends to get some of the local business crowd from Republic Square. They have everything from local to international dishes and you can also get beer out here

    Favorite Dish: Sorry I forgot to write the name of the places here but get your butt over there and check it out for yourself.....isn't that part of the fun of traveling??????

    Lonely Planet reommends this place. Sorry but the building it is in suffered a fire and this place is closed and has probably been so for some time. No worries as there are plenty of other places to eat in the city.
