Cherkezi Dzor

Top choice armenian in Gyumri

Popular with Russian officers from the nearby army base, this restaurant is a great summer choice. Seating is in open pavilions surrounding the fish pools where your dinner will be caught to order. Those in the know choose trout (boiled is best) or sturgeon (barbecued). Bread is freshly baked in on-site ovens.

The restaurant is on the western side of town and a little hard to find. From the stadium, cross the opposite bank and walk north up the canyon for 1.3km. Alternatively, a taxi should cost AMD800 each way.
