Where to eat in Yerevan?

Aug 29, 2019 in Tips

If you participate in ASPIRANTUM language school you are certainly hungry for knowledge and want to learn Armenian, Persian and Russian languages in a rapid pace! It may happen that at some point you will get hungry for real. Lucky, Yerevan is full of wonderful places that will keep your stomach full, warm and happy!

Below we collected the best places to eat in Yerevan! All the featured restaurants are placed in Kentron (city centre), so they are in a walkable distance from the location where the classes take place. 

The price range of the restaurants we classified into 3 categories: cheap, average, a bit more expensive. Notice, that if you are coming from European countries or USA and Canada, even the more pricey ones will seem cheap for you. If you are from countries that are generally cheaper than Armenia, check out all of the places we marked as ‘cheap’ - many of them, are better than even the fanciest places in Yerevan!
