If you want to know what restaurants were like in the Soviet Union, go to the Ararat. It's in a basement with a slightly musty smell. The food was barely mediocre. 3 of us sat at a table for 6, which meant I could swap out the chipped plate for another one. The service was attentive, as no one else... More

we had beer and salad and french fries in this restaurant, so I am not sure about the food quality but judging from what we had I guess it should be good! service was good, of course there were no dancing group but there was a really good band and the singer voice was really good and we danced ourselves!

Worst experience ever! Decided to speak English to the waiter instead of my native tongue as I find it easier and the staff took advantage of us. The lamb kebab was 4 chunks of fat! We couldn't eat it. The chicken was raw. Bread dry and salad warm. We were in and out of this claustrophobic place as fast as... More

Didn't even know this place had live shows until I came back to my hotel. But had great lunch experience here. Passing by the main square, I saw this poster (see picture) offering lunch for very good prices. When I entered, the doorkeeper offered (actually, I think it's mandatory to leave the jacket) to take my jacket and showed me... More

When compared to some other national dance and food events we have been to this is good value although some may find the US$50/person a little steep. Entrees were excellent, and could be improved if we were told what they all were. Main was average, but this is probably due to us expecting tastier food and in general Armenians don't... More
