1. The menu is not 1 per table but 1 per person. 2. The waiters are very polite and well trained and if you are nice to them they are extra carful to keep you happy. 3. the menu is designed by a person who has traveled a lot , has a good taste and knows what a customer whould like to see. 4. You dont need to fight in order to keep your plates on the table, here they ask you if they can take your plate away. 5. You can actually see the manager, who might drope by to ask if you like your food and what you recomend. 6. Waiters dont avoid the customers. and if you need assistance and no body is around just press the wirless bell.
The only disatvantage that i noticed is that the toilets are just in front of the main entrance.
Some tips: take a table in downstairs, there are small canals there, pillows are provided if the wooden chairs are not that comfy for you. On the door it says that they honour Visa cards , I havent tried this but you can give a shot. Food: I recomend their Ishkhan, and Old Trbilisi white wine. Also try the Georgian starters that have wallnut in them. Just perfect.
We have been in search for such a place from the first day of my arrival, and finally we found one.
The place that i wouldnt recomend is the small restairant near Cascade, people know it as Alamo, but it's nameless now and on the menu it has a "female name's place" . I guess it's Anush's Place or something.
I went there once and whatever we ordered was horrible. Steak was theworst that i have ever had in my life. and when Icomplained they started teaching me that what a steak is, to a person who comes from Mid-west USA. Taboule was a disgrace and we had to return it before breaking our teeth. I found some rice next to my non-rice steak side-dish. Drinks came late. First time in my life I had to leave no tip. and the pathetic part is that it was included in the bill.
From time to time i will write about places to eat while in Yerevan. next is a cafe near opera, where they change the tablecloths very frequently and even when you spil water on it. The place is next to Opera and if you want to give a guess please e-mail them to me.
