Ayas was the main port of the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia, the center of trade between the West and the East. Here's why these opposites – the West and the East, the history and the present - harmoniously intertwine in this restaurant. Cozy historical atmosphere gently allows visitors to imagine how the legendary Cilicia existing over seven centuries ago was. The menu also corresponds to the restaurant's spirit and idea, including dishes of ethnic Armenian cuisine. In the evenings visitors can also listen to the ancient Armenian music performed by distinguished artists of Armenia (tar, duduk).



The restaurant is located in the very heart of Yerevan city, at the intersection of Tumanyan and the former Alaverdyan streets. The restaurant's cuisine includes historical Armenian dishes prepared by our chief-cooks only from organic and fresh products grown in Armenia. Visitors are offered a wide choice of Armenian home-made wines and home-made vodka with variety of tastes - apricot, mulberry, corneal vodka, etc. The restaurant has two halls decorated in different styles.
