Restaurant in the style of the Armenian noble house
Another unique and interesting restaurant for tourists is Tsirani Home-Restaurant. If the previous restaurant combined Armenian cuisine with Armenian nature, here you can enjoy national dishes in an atmosphere that reminds you of an Armenian home.
Cafe Restaurant is one of the most colourful places in Yerevan. The cafe-restaurant is located in the charming garden of the old house, where lovely music nights are organized under the vines with the participation of talented and famous musicians. While waiting for your order, you will have the opportunity not only to walk through the magnificent garden but also to visit the Dalan Art Gallery. And right at the entrance to the cafe, there is a small souvenir shop where you can buy a gift for yourself or for your relatives in memory of Armenia.
Restaurant with an open kitchen near the central square
The restaurant was the first to demonstrate its large open kitchen, thanks to which visitors and customers can follow the cooking process of the ordered dish, becoming closer to the culinary art. From the main dishes, we recommend choosing ghapama or lamb. If you wish, you can also follow the process of baking lavash in the mold.
