The place is very comfortable place where you can enjoy hot summer evenings,located in downtown its very easy to find. But to reach there best option to walk or to ride a bicycle,not recommended to use car, problem with parking

This place is so cozy, both indoor and outdoor! Make sure you try the best pork xorovats in the city!

The restaurant was recommended to me by my guide. The food was alright but quite pricey considering the alternatives in the area. All in all I'd say it's an okay place to go. The atmosphere though was very good and the wait staff were all very friendly.

Take a break with some local Armenian salads and a glass of Yerevan beer or wine at this old doctor's house which dates back to 1860. Don't get mislead by the modest entrance...

We stumbled upon Abovyan 12 and immediately fell in love with it. The restaurant has a shady courtyard complete with overhanging grapevines. The food was delicious and they had some great wines selection too. They also have a nice gallery with some beautiful artwork! Don't miss this place if you are in Yerevan.

We were recommended to go here by our tour guide. She said it was much less touristy than other places, not very expensive, and really good. She was right on the spot. Probably less touristy because it's really hard to find, but really really good. It's on Abovyan street, but the access is actually through a funky souvenir shop called... More

All the food is good in this place but Khorovats is excellent! I tried pork, mushrooms, vegetable an chicken wings... everything was perfect all the times I had dinner/lunch here. I love the relaxed atmosphere of this location too.

You can access this restaurant either through the main entrance or the neighbouring art shop. The latter brings you into a surprisingly large open dining space. Tables are well set out with plenty of space and underneath vines. The service was speedy, the food and local Armenian beer good. A nice relaxed place to eat at the end of the... More

I chose this restaurant because the menu looked interesting and good value. From the street it doesn't look like a tempting location. But climb the stairs, and then you down again into an open courtyard which makes for a far better setting than expected, and it's away from the street. Staff were helpful and the food was great.

Thank LoneBrit
