A small, & upmarket restaurant in a homey atmosphere where you'll get personal attention, a lengthy wine list and some interesting local specialities. Try the mountain lamb stew or chicken in wine and walnut sauce, made with the freshest produce available.

...for dinner, Dolmama's, at 10 Pushkin Ave., is well known for traditional lamb dishes...

The Wall Street Journal

After having spent a week in Georgia and Armenia, we stumbled upon Dolmama's and it was fantastic. While we ate very well pretty much everywhere -- from hotel restaurants to roadside shacks -- this was probably the best meal of the trip. Among other things, our waitress spoke perfect English (as well as 4 other languages) and made great recommendations. The domoma was fantastic (and usually I don’t even like dolomas). The lamb was equally great.


Dolmama is without a question one of the best restaurants not only in Armenia but in the world.

What makes this little corner so special is the implausible perfection and the style of the owner.

If you want to show a foreigner what the Armenian kitchen and hospitality is all about, then Dolmama is your place.

Dolmama is a spot to go when you're already starting to feel a bit tired of the typical Armenian fare that mostly consists of all sorts of grilled food. Undeniably, this is the best Yerevan restaurant offering modern Armenian cuisine. Its owner is an art collector, an American Armenian, who has returned to Yerevan. Probably you will meet him there, chatting with guests. The smallish restaurant features a laconic, well thought-out design. In warm weather, the meal can be savored on the cozy inner courtyard terrace, entwined by lush vines.

I don't usually spend my drams on food in Yerevan, but I have had my eye for quite a bit of time on the restaurant located on Pushkin Street, Dolmama. With the family in town I took full advantage to shop the idea of enjoying a quality meal there.


Dolmama is an interesting restaurant that serves traditional, ancient Armenian food.

It is very popular with Westerners, so we decided to experience it ourselves. Dolmama's advertisement is "Dolmama the Armenia's Restaurant". The restaurant is located on the Pushkin Street, just few feet from the Abovian Street.


Good food is important part of Armenian life. In every household the tradition of entertaining guests graciously is an integral part of hospitality. At Dolmama the Armenian traditional food is prepared with freshest seasonal produce. The foods are extremely delicious, innovative and elegantly presented.
