Food and ambience

Location and contact

A small, & upmarket restaurant in a homey atmosphere where you'll get personal attention, a lengthy wine list and some interesting local specialities. Its owner is an art collector, an American Armenian, who has returned to Yerevan. Probably you will meet him there, chatting with guests. The smallish restaurant features a laconic, well thought-out design. In warm weather, the meal can be savored on the cozy inner courtyard terrace, entwined by lush vines.

Such a cosy restaurant where you can feel home while dining. Dolma with mince meat and lamb shank are must try. Even though we were there at around 11 pm they did not even hesitate to serve us. Definitely recommended.

This restaurant deserves top rating for its exceptional menu and great selection of Armenian wine (especially Artsakh wines). This is not a budget restaurant but is not expensive by western standards either. It is fine dining at an Armenian price. Don't miss lunch or dinner...More

If you want to taste traditional Armenian cuisine - you must visit this restaurant. Food is delicious and you cannot miss whatever you choose. Take care in front of the building - there is big almost 100 years old grapevine tree in front.

Very tasty, traditional Armenian food the way my medsmama and my aunts made it. I had the grape leaf dolmads (we call it sarma) and it was served in yogurt soup. I was in heaven!

The food was excellent but the restaurant had little atmosphere. We wanted to sit on the terrace / open area but were told it was not available. However there did not seem to be anyone dining outside. We enjoyed other restaurants in Yerevan much better
