10 Pushkin St, Yerevan

Though the title has ‘Cafe’ in it you can have a fine dinner here so we decided to include it with the restaurants. You would never know a souvenir shop has a cafe/restaurant at its backyard if we didn’t tell you:) Dalan is kind of hidden, you should pass through a gift shop / art gallery and exit through the back door to find yourself in a charming summer garden. This gives a feeling like a friend has invited you for a dinner. They also have an indoor restaurant upstairs. The art gallery is also there. This is one-stop-shop for lunch/dinner, souvenirs, gallery and, sometimes, live performance

What Do People Like About This Place?
  • Quaint and romantic feel
  • The art gallery
  • Awesome Armenian handcraft
  • Simple and creative
