Our tour guide recommended this place as we drove into Yerevan on our coach, but when we walked out to find it in the evening we couldn't see an entrance on Abovyan Street. We had given up and were walking back when in a side...street we saw somewhere advertising Armenian beer; when we looked at it we found that there was a restaurant on the upper level, so we wouldn’t have to cope with a dimly-lit bierkeller. This, as it turned out, was Salon.
The dining-room that we were shown into was a high-ceilinged corniced space with nothing recognisably Armenian about it and about as much character as a Marks & Spencer changing room. One other table was occupied, but only for about ten minutes after we arrived (although there was a private dining-room off to one side, we discovered later, probably for tour groups). The staff were well-meaning but slow. Once we’d ordered and the waiter had gone off we switched tables so that we would at least have the entertainment of looking out of the window. A couple of people came in later, but for most of our time there we were the only diners in the room. I’d like to say that the food made up for this, but it was nothing to shout about. My wife had a veal fillet with vegetables, and I ordered lamb with vegetables wrapped in lavash – a mistake, for the bread overwhelmed its contents and I left much of it.More
We sampled many Armenian foods, many similar to Greek it middle Eastern but with variations. For the main course we had veal with pomegranate sauce. The sauce was delicious but this was definitely stretching the definition of veal! We had local wine that was quite...good!More
This plush restaurant situated on Abovyan Street has a unique eclectic décor. It seems that it used to be the house of a rich family prior to the Soviet times, and the living and dining rooms are now used as the restaurant’s main dining spaces...(one of them non-smoking). The restaurant serves mainly Armenian food as well as some Georgian and Lebanese starters. The food is very good and prices are decent. The staff are friendly and professional.More
We were celebrating the birthday of my friend here with her family. The place itself is very nice, it is an old building, I think about 130 years old. You can feel inside the spirit of tje building, the food was tasty, what is important...it was not salty :). And the service is unbelievable... will visit again.More
Went there with a friend 2 hours before the Euro 2016 final, got told the pub (120 seating capacity) was fully booked, but no one was there. We asked if we could have a (one) drink by the bar. They asked if we wanted to...watch the football, we said if we could get a table. They laughed at us and showed us to an empty corner room and said we could have a drink there. We felt unwelcomed and left after that. Why would they not serve us by the bar, I will never know.More
