Great place if you want to get large sized cheap drinks for lower prices! Wonderful staff, chilled atmosphere, but keep in mind that the food portions might be smaller than what you're used to - it's more of a tapas restaurant (order more, pay little)

I have always loved this place, it's one of my favorite restaurants in Yerevan. I do love spicy food and they have those Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers that are just amazing. There are so many things that I would just list, but you'd rather check it...More

A very pleasant and well-situated Mexican bar/restaurant on Mashtots Avenue. What drew me to this joint, apart from not having eaten Mexican in a long time, was the very goo "Happy Hours" deal with 20% off the entire bill between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m....More

I stopped into the Cactus mid-afternoon in search of non-Armenian snacks and I was not disappointed! The nachos were just what I needed (despite apparent mixed reviews from others). Margaritas were good - made with lemon juice instead of lime so a bit different but...More

Having been once to Mexico, one wants to be back there again. The fierce heat of the sun, desert and prickly cactus are not the only highlights of the country; it has many wonders to offer, like the mariachi playing guitars, gorgeous dark beauties who entertain the local macho with their flamenco dances. Mexico is the country of tequila, most exotic cocktails, and inexperienced emotions.Having opened in May 2000, the first Mexican restaurant in Yerevan soon became one of the most frequented spots in the city. Over the years, the restaurant has hosted a variety of festivals, has won at several contests, thus earning a great reputation among the city residents, mass media, politicians, show businessmen and tourists. Jovial Mexican spirit catches one’s eye upon entering the restaurant. Warm and cordial welcome, nice interior and lively atmosphere, filled with the tunes of Mexican and Latino music devour you in the air of fiesta. High-quality service, live music, and nice surprises are as entertaining as ever.We boast the richest bar in the country that offers you a great variety of spirits and soft drinks, distinguished and exclusive cocktails, made by the best barmen in the world, winners of international contests. Our Mexican corner welcomes you with its car parking, free delivery, broadband internet, and plenty of other surprises.
