The exquisite Zanazan restaurant at Avan Marak Tsapatagh overlooks Lake Sevan and surrounding countryside from a beautiful open terrace. The restaurant offers exceptional Armenian cuisine made from fresh local ingredients and regional recipes, creatively reinterpreted and expanded by the Tufenkian culinary team.
Guests can enjoy their meals in the medieval dining hall or on the open terrace with a spectacular view over the lake. High vaulted ceilings at the Zanazan Restaurant provide guests with a unique experience, reminiscent of dining in a grand hall of a countryside manor.

Nestled with in a small village along the banks of Lake Sevan, the location of this hotel is idyllic. It allows us to feel a part of this landscape and its people and not isolated the way tourists often feel.
The décor is fantastic, the cleanliness and service outstanding. The food is out of this world!
Our hats off to you!!
It has been a delightful experience to dine, so exquisitely on the shores of Lake Sevan. The food is some of the best I have tasted on the world, the white wine is superb and the service has been charming attentive and professional.
On two successive evenings, we have enjoyed superb Armenian Cuisine on a magnificent setting overlooking Lake Sevan, which changes its aspect every few minutes. We could hardly have enjoyed it more, and look forward to future visits. Food and drink are keys to a culture, and we believe that we have enjoyed the best of Armenian hospitality precisely here.
