I was recently in Armenia for 7 days and visited this restaurant three times! (I also ordered a takeaway) The restaurant is elegant and relaxing. White tablecloths, fresh flowers and local artwork set the perfect background for food that's made with love and attention.

I am a vegetarian and was delighted by the range and variety of options available. While I was there I ate the most delicious beetroot and feta salad, beetroot mutabal, spinach enchiladas with nachos and refried beans, falafel and Greek salad as well as more traditional dishes you'd expect to find in Armenia such as fatoush, labne, stuffed vine leaves, hummus and *orange cake!! - make sure you try this.

Usefully and unusually, there is parking at this restaurant but it only costs roughly 600 dram (about £1/$1.2) for the 5/7 minute taxi journey from Republic Square in the centre of the city.

The staff were very helpful and cheerful always ensuring our wine glasses were topped up and we had what we needed.

If you visit Armenia.. don't miss out on this jewel.

I know there are few expensive restaurant in Yerevan and I have visited few /all of them stated that they are expensive/ but this restaurant says that it has average prices /it is written like that on their TA page/, but in reality it is expensive. I don't mind paying so much as the food is good, but when I go to place which I don't know is expensive, I get upset

Dear mkrtchyanirina, all genuine feedback we receive on Trip Advisor and elsewhere are greatly appreciated. Comments give us a better understanding of how we are doing as a business, and how we can improve. Charentsi 28 Restaurant has been open for almost 9 years, and we have always paid attention to our customer’s comments.

When we respond to a not so positive review, we reply publicly so that readers are not mislead in any way.

Trip Advisor has a price ranging system of 3 categories, including “cheap eats”, “mid-range” and “fine dining”. Yerevan city has a great variety of different classes of restaurants, with a handful of expensive ones. Simply skimming through the menus of Yerevan's “fine dining” restaurants, you will realize that Charentsi 28 is 2-3 times less expensive and, believe it or not, even less expensive than many of the “mid-range” category listings.

To give our readers a better understanding of our prices, here are a few examples. Salads average 1600 AMD ($3.30). We also have a couple of specially salads with a maximum price of 2800 AMD ($5.75). Soups average 1600 AMD ($3.30). Our main dishes vary greatly, starting from 1200 ($2.50), averaging at 3400 AMD ($7.00), with the most expensive specialty dish being the Sautéed Shrimp with rice at 7100 ($14.60). An average meal, with a starter, main course, and a glass of wine, should cost approximately 6700 AMD (just shy of $14 USD).

Our full menu (except for wines) is published on our official website, including all prices, and is also available to download.

We hope our detailed response will make you reconsider your subjective view about our restaurant, and hope to see you again soon.
