It's a traditional place.

Want to dine in an old palace kings chambers? Want good traditional music 🎶? Dancing? Yes? Then this is it. This is the place where the family of one of a couple members meets the family of the other! Dancing includes traditional village dances like "Yarkhushka" and Kochari. Service maybe... read more

The food here is surprisingly good, although this is not the main reason to come to this small theater/floor show eatery. The menu is quite large, it is in English, and they tell you the ingredients of each dish. The show is a bit anemic in the singing and dancing part, and the music is way too loud, so much... More

Arrived at 9pm on a Sunday with 9 people. Very few people were in the restaurant at tis time, and we were on the 8th floor. In short the evening was ruined by a surly waiter. The first challenge was moving two table together. You could visibly see his irritation with this. 2nd. He was only able to provide 2... More

A memorable MUST eat type of place. Its about the whole experience. each floor is differently decorated, and you get surprized at each floor, but they saved the best for the top floor, with a big terrace, view of the famous opera square, and Mair hayastan statue. Do not miss it !

Sadly lacking in atmosphere with bright lights, tables spaced out very far from each other, and no music (other than the performance which lasted about 10 minutes). Service was very slow which normally wouldn't bother me very much but I was keen to leave! The food was poor with a lamb kebab that consisted almost completely of fat and grizzle.... More

I had dinner in Old Yerevan during my recent five day holiday in Armenia. The food was awful! My hot starter was cold on the inside and my fish kebab was actually chicken. The bread basket was older than I am. It gave the word stale a new meaning! The service was lack luster to say the least. The only... More

This food in here is awful. We had a large group booked in & I was asked to book in advance. The waiter pushed more & more food on our order. The quality of the food was poor... We had much better food during our stay elsewhere. Do not believe that this is 'traditional food' or you will be disappointed!... More
