Description: Welcome to Charles - the cafe and restaurant that is a fusion of Armenian and French cuisines and cultures. Charles is the name of not only the world famous Armenian singer, actor Charles Aznavour, but also many other quite famous French people. We are located at the bottom of Yerevan's most visited sightseeing spots, right in the center of the capital - the Cascade. Here you will find the wonderful and cozy atmosphere you are looking for, blended with exquisite service and quality food. If you are a wine lover, we can offer you a large variety of wines to choose from both from the old world and the new. We also have a variety of Armenian wines that you will be delighted to try, since Armenia is the historic world of winemaking. In our menu you can find both, old traditional Armenian dishes and European unique masterpieces of our Chef. It is our pleasure to mention that our kitchen staff undergoes trainings every 3 months conducted by world famous Chefs that come to visit our restaurant from various parts of Europe. Our one of its kind interior, the live music played in the evenings, high quality service and our welcoming staff will make you feel the Armenian hospitality at its best in every detail. We are glad to offer various lounges and halls in order to suit the needs of all our guests. There are halls for smokers as well as for non-smokers, a lounge bar where you can see Armenian famous paintings and a warm evening sitting room where there is a fireplace you can enjoy while taking your drink. You can even light the fireplace yourself and keep it going by putting more wood in it for the duration of your stay. All this is accompanied with the wonderful sounds of the violin, accordion and the amazing grand piano. In the summer time our outdoor cafe is the place to be. The location, the food and the service leave you wanted to stay longer than planned to enjoy the evening Yerevan and the atmosphere of our cafe.

One can hardly ever find the dishes cooked in accordance with the original recipes, fresh and organic, exactly matching one's dietary needs. Charles restaurant is the exact place where you can find the vital food for healthy life style.
We enjoyed the time spent at Charles together with our friends and guests, not just the food, but also the atmosphere spiced up with live music and interior design.
As a tourist, I highly recommend this place to all those, who are in search of a place to have a quality food and time.
We shall definitely come back again and again!

Went there after climbing the cascade and had a nice quick lunch with salad and some drinks including cappuccino. Tables outside are comfortable, coffee was fine, salad (Charles) was superb. Service was a bit slow at the beginning , they nearly forgot about us, but then caught up and was up to par. No regrets, and can be recommended. Prices are typical for the centre of Yerevan. Toilet was very clean.

I’ve been in Charles for several times. I’m impressed both with cuisine and service and interior. We had both breakfast and dinner with friends. I would like to mention especially Ravioli, Trout with asparagus, bruschetta with avocado, salad with prune, armenian pakhlava. By the way there is a live music which made the evening more unforgettable:))
