“Worth visiting for the music”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Our group ate dinner at this restaurant on the last night of our week's tour of Armenia. I have to admit that when I saw the stage set-up for musicians my heart sank, and I chose to sit as far away as possible - my experience of 'folklore' for tourists in other countries has not been good!
In fact it was a pleasure to listen to the musicians: two male vocalists, keyboards, hand drumming and of course the duduk.
The food was quite acceptable: the usual fresh vegetable salads, salty cheese and breads to start followed by vegetables stuffed with meat and rice. The vegetarian offering was however one of the poorest I have ever seen: a plate of rice and chips. The music and the setting however made for a very memorable end to our week and the performance alone would justify visiting the Ararat.
