The Best Restaurants in Stepanakert, Nagorno Karabakh

Picture of Jonny Blair
Updated: 20 January 2018
The quirky city of Stepanakert is the capital of Nagorno Karabakh, a self-declared country in the Caucasus region. Yet, despite its unrecognised status as a country, the city is well located when touring the region, and has easy bus access to other towns such as Shushi, Vank and Tatev in Armenia. At night, the city has a calmness about it and some truly cosy little bars and restaurants in which to enjoy fine cuisine and a few casual drinks.

Pyatachok Cafe-Bar

Cafe, Asian, $$$
Save to wishlist

With a reputation for excellent coffee and tea, Pyatachok Cafe-Bar remains a firm favourite for those who like to relax. While the venue doesn’t have an extensive range of Armenian food, they have some great salads, cakes and sweet treats. It also holds a prime location on the main roundabout on the Azatamartikneri Avenue side of Renaissance Square.

For an Armenian take on pizza, great pasta, a choice of beers and free Wi-Fi, the centrally located Tashir Pizza is the perfect spot. This restaurant has a few rooms and it overlooks Stepanakert’s main street Azatamartikneri Avenue. The pizza range is probably the best in the country, and there is a wide variety of Mediterranean dishes which changes from time to time. It is one of the most popular restaurants in the city.

For a traditional Armenian banquet in the company of friends, Ureni Restaurant is the place to be. Huge helpings are served and placed in the middle of the table to be shared. As a tourist, if your Armenian hosts or friends invite you here, make sure to try some of the local Karabakh dishes such as tanov apur (an unusual soup made from yoghurt and sour cream), plus the mandatory large plates of grilled meat to be shared with vegetables on the side.
